Default Probe Polarity for Love TS??

The probe that came with my Love TS 13010 has blue and red wire leads. Does it matter which probe wires i am putting into (1) or (2) on the controller?
i've heard that if you stick it in backwards you'll either get gobbily goop, or a negative reading, i.e. -65F.


From Cole-Parmer, the probe is:

-1.5" (4 cm) thermistor (100Ω at 25°C) with 5 ft (1.5 m) cable (included)

-The thermistor is a PTC type.

i Have blue in (1) and red in (2)
It seems to be working A-Ok right now, but i wanted to double check without having to switch the polarity.
So am i good to forget about it, or do i need to switch?

It's a thermistor...There is no concept of polarity.

Like Lamarguy said, doesn't matter. It's just a resistor that varies resistance based on temperature, hence the name 'thermistor'
