Plugged it in yesterday after replacing the relay and it started right up. Put my brew kettle in with about 6 gallons of water and its been running overnight. Within a couple of hours, it dropped from room temp to 56, and this morning it was at 42. I adjusted the controller at about 4:30 this afternoon from 5 to 4 and the temp rose to 44. About 7pm I adjusted it to 6-ish and it hasn't changed much.

How can I break that 40-degree barrier? I'd be really happy at 38-39.

Try going up to 7 and leave it until tomorrow. It takes a very long time to equalize temp. But when you get it right you should be all set and not have to worry about it again.

Checked it this morning before leaving for work with the setting at 6. Temp read 39.9!! Woot!

I turned it up to 6.5 and I'm going to check it when I get home. Hoping to find 38ish!!
