Default Ranco dual programing issues

I am trying to keep fermentation in the Carboy at 66F. I have a keezer with a heating pad and the thermostat probe is in the Carboy. How should I set the program so that I can keep it at that 66F temp with minimum fluctuation?

Since I don't know if your using it as a two stage or single stage controller, (Whats the ambient temp around your ferment chamber)? I am going to guess your just looking to heat your chamber to 66F

IF that is the case, simply plug your controller into the pad, and scroll through the controllers menu until you reach the heat setting "H2" and set it for 66F with a 1-2 degree varience.

Monitor for the next couple of hours to see where the temp is consistently landing and either add or subtract a degree to the setting, if necessary, to reflect what the actual sustained temp is.

Subject claims "dual".

Set it to 67°F with a one degree differential...

Cheers!
