    *Not an electrician*You don't need a GFCI outlet/receptacle. I'd swap out your 30 amp breaker
    for a 30 amp GFCI breaker. I'm not sure they make GFCI receptacles rated at 30 amp 240V. The
    big thing her...

    I'm not sure you'll find contactors at your local Home Depot. You can get them from Auber,
    Amazon, or a number of other places. I wouldn't endorse any specific vendor. You need to make
    sure that it is...

    I'd like to get this started in the next week or two. Can anyone explain why some people have
    random fuses between here and there? Also, what is the "coil" in the wiring diagram? A
    resistor?I'm not an...

    I think it depends on what you have available to you. I brew in an unfinished detached garage
    that has a 100A sub panel. I use a 30A GFCI breaker wired to a standard (non-locking) 4 wire
    30A receptacl...

    There is an image on the Auber website that is pretty helpful in how to wire the SSVR.

    Bumping an old thread. Base Camp ( will fill corny kegs. I had two filled for a Super Bowl
    party. They charged something like $10-15/keg to clean them plus the cost of beer. It would
    have been cheape...

    You should double check this, but I think you can modify the existing diagram by doing the
    following: Run the neutral to C1. Remove the connection from L2 to C1. The voltage meter would
    need to have t...

    Either the switch or the contactor is letting the red hot leg through to the red leg side of
    the LED. You should be able to test each component to determine if one or the other is letting
    current thro...

    The jumper line is only hot when the switch is in the on position. Assuming your switch is in
    the off position, take a multimeter and you should be able to reflect no continuity between the
    fuse side ...

    In the diagram the black leg is not being switched. The black leg is always hot to one leg of
    the LED. The red leg is hot coming off the contactor, run through a fuse, and into one side of
    the switch....
