I picked up a decent deep freezer from one of those restaurant auctions for $50. So put a temp controller on it and away we go right? Nope, not me, nothing is ever that easy. I have tried the Ranco and a Zytron temp controller (both are very similar) and neither works. Here is the problem: when I plug the freezer in the wall, everything is good, when I plug it into the temp controller, the compressor "CLICKS" and shuts off until I unplug the freezer from the controller. The freezer is set to the lowest point, and the controllers are both operating normally.
Do I need to bypass the thermo? I shouldn't have to.
