Default EBay temperature controller problem

I just got my eBay temp controller in and I have a couple if concerns. It doesn't say "STC-100" on the front, and the instructions say it uses a 220VAC power supply. Did buy the wrong one? :/

I think you bought the wrong one. I just bought one and saw they had some 220 volt ones listed.

Post a link to yours.

I guess the next question would be, is there any way that I could make this unit work?

Someone sorted it out (might be in the ebay controller mega thread!). Basically it involved changing out the transformer from a 220V one to a 110V one, also need the case to be cut because the replacement transformer was slight taller).
