Make sure you purchased the correct STC-1000, marked 110VAC. If it is marked 220VAC or 12V, its not the right one.
Hi

I have some major concerns every time I chime in on one of these threads. Are we enabling somebody to undertake a potentially dangerous task without any idea if they can handle it?

None of this is anything that would be tough work for your typical electrician. If all the parts are on hand it's maybe 20 minutes of work. Around here you might pay $70 to have one do the final hookup and make sure it's ok. That may be the best advice for a lot of people.

OK...I wired it up and it works. Or at least the power works. I wired it to one receptical using the top for hot and the bottom for cold. Here's my problem now...when plugged into either outlet the freezer temp is not controlled, it just continuously goes down into the negative temp range. I have it set to 15 degrees and it won't even get near there. Where do I begin troubleshooting?

Do you have your probe in water or air?

Hi

Tape the probe to the inside wall of the freezer. You want the tip to be about half way to 2/3 way down the wall. If it's over the hump that's fine, just make sure it's out of the way from where kegs might scrape it off as you take them in and out. Aluminum foil tape is the best thing to use. Duct / Duck / Gorilla tape also works.

Hi

GREAT!!

You probably will have to fiddle a little bit to get the kegs at the right temperature. An offset of a couple degrees between the controller and the beer temperature is not at all uncommon.

Does the STC1000 have "CE" marking? I thought I saw it in one of the pictures, but I don't see it on the latest ebay listings.

Some of the pictures on Ebay have it, others don't? I'm sure they are the same unit though.
