    You do realize that a 5500W 240V element will run at 2750W at 120V, right? That is about 23
    amps. Your 15A receptacle will be a bit undersized.5500 watts @ 240 volts = 22.91 amps with
    10.47 ohms resis...

    Conversion formula is F = (C x 2) + 30"Well actually" conversion is F = (C x 1.8) + 32 :D

    5500 pulls 22-23amps, and that is with the PID full on. I wonder if you could use manual mode
    to lessen the amp draw? Or use a smaller element.Manual mode won't lessen the amp draw. It will
    only turn ...

    I've never had that happen. I do make certain that there is some keg lube on the lid seal and
    hit it with 30psi of CO2 after purging.Based on your two comments I just checked my 2 kegs of
    Cream of 3 C...
