Problem solved. Switched the wiring back and then realized to put into effect the parameter changes, you must hit the power button after adjusting settings.

I found a thread I thought was pretty good. They recommended turn the delay time all the way up (10min max) and set the variance value to +/- the minimum value (+/- 0.3*C). To complement this, as stated above, I taped over a few times the probe to attach it to a plastic water bottle for the thermal mass.
I thought about doing it to the keg, but mine were at room temp so the probe would probably read warm for quite a while I figured, and my freezer might get too low. To heat up that much thermal mass might take the actual freezer temp way down, causing the beer to maybe freeze since it'd be well below freezing when the keg got to temperature and kicked off the compressor. The water bottle seems to be enough to avoid dramatic swings, but still allow long enough cycles to make a difference?
Just my thought process. I may strap it to a keg when they get down to temperature.
