    I called beverage air and he said the starting amps could be as high as 20 or 25A. So I think
    I'll be brushing up on the external relay suggestion!

    How old is the beverage-air cooler? If it's an older model or if it's not in peak shape the
    compressor could be drawing more current than what the sticker says. If you are going to
    contact anyone I wo...

    Roger that. From an electrical standpoint, 8.5 amps is too close to the rated 10 amp switch.
    Especially for a compressor, which will have inrush current when the motor starts. If the OP
    has blown more...

    Might consider having the controller trigger a big honkin' relay that actually does the
    compressor switching. I use that method on my keezer just out of GPs...Cheers!Sounds good. Do
    you know where the...

    Like I said earlier, maybe the Ranco just has bigger cojones and can handle the momentary spike
    better. Based on the dataplate you posted above, it's got way more than an STC1000. :)I hear
    what you ar...

    Quick question for you...why a dual stage? I find that 95% of my fermentation concerns are
    cooling, and that when it drops down below the set temp, it will free rise back within a few
    minutes (without...

    I've been using a Brews By Smith STC-1000+ controller for over 2 years with a G&E 7 cubic foot
    chest freezer and never had any problems, but I don't remember what the ampere draw is on it.I
    can use th...

    Here's the ranco relay specs

  • Posted in thread: Keep blowing temp controllers on 10-01-2016 at 02:09 PM
    I was thinking that was the problem but I don't know enough about circuits to figure it out.
    What confuses me is my ranco seems to also have similar specs:

    Lastly, I bought the ITC-301t from inkbird but aside from plugging it in and seeing what
    happens, maybe someone can tell me if it should work. The specs appear to be similar to the
    stc-1000 which is w...
