I'm setting up a fermentation chamber with an A419 control unit and a new GE chest freezer (7 cubic foot) The freezer is set on it's warmest setting.
The issue I'm having is that even though the control turns on and off at the correct temperatures, the freezer continues to cool even after the control unit shuts it off (which duh, I guess I should have known that) , so the temp in the chamber is dropping 10 degrees cooler than what I want and sitting there for quite a while. Has anybody else had this problem?
So right now the set point is at 40, with a 2 degree differential. So it kicks on at the point I expect, and shuts off at 38. But the temp in the freezer continues to drop after that and according to the display on the control goes all the way down to 30 before stabilizing and coming back up.
Also it seems like sometimes the control is starting up the freezer before the differential temp if reached. Not every time, but I've seen it doing that at least twice now. Anybody know what's up with that.
Anybody have any tips on how to smooth this out a little?
