Ok, here's the scoop....
I have a Love Controller 4C Series, connected to a thermocouple in my RIM system. I had to have the controller replaced due to defective terminals but since then, the new one has worked fine. I have the controller hooked up to a 12 DC solid state relay and then going to a 1500w AC heating element (AC power is supplied separately). All of that works just fine.
The problem is, I hooked up my controller in the kitchen yesterday to the thermocouple, then dipped it in a pot of boiling water. Prior to putting the thermocouple in the water, the temp reading was 75, once I dipped it in the boiling water, it jumped down to 0 then to -55F.
I went through the programming with a Dwyer tech. on the phone a few weeks back when I initially programmed it so I know its set to F vs C and its programmed for the right thermocouple.
Has anyone ever seen this before or have any insight to what the problem might be?? I know all I need to do is wait til I Monday to call Dywer but this is my last step in a 7 month RIMS building project and I haven't been able to brew since Nov! Plus school is getting in the way. Any thoughts are welcome!!!
