My Ranco got the E2 kiss of death and won't cycle anymore. A friend of mine bought 6 of these controllers and they shipped the 240V ones even though he ordered 110. They just gave him credit so they were free and he gave me 3.

I pulled it apart and converted it to 9VAC so I mounted a power supply in the box. I had all of the parts except the power supply and that cost me $3.50

This document is great. It is clear, concise, has pictures; hard to go wrong building a single dual-stage controller if you follow these directions.

Just need to test it now! Super easy to build and looks great! Thanks to everyone who posted wiring and materials to use. Made the build quick, cheap, and painless.
