Is that 10 amp contact rating a inductive or resistive one?
Compressors have a high inrush starting surge way above
the 4.3 amp running current.

This thing will handle both. There is a setting for using inductive loads. Here is an excerpt from the manual:

"4.5.2 On/off control mode
It is necessary for inductive loads such as motors, compressors, or solenoid
valves that do not like to take pulsed power. It works like a mechanical
thermostat. When the temperature passes the set point, the heater (or
cooler) will be turned off. When the temperature drops back to below the
hysteresis band (Hy) the heater will turn on again.
To use the On/off mode, set At=0. Then, set the Hy to the desired range
based on control precision requirements. Smaller Hy values result in tighter
temperature control, but also cause the on/off action to occur more
frequently"



It may not be enough. Looks like it might be just over 10 AMPs on start. It also depends on the start kit installed on your fridge unit.

Is this a "Frost Free" fridge? If so, the defrost current is probably greater than the compressor running current. The AMP rating on the plate may indicate the draw of the defrost cycle as it is greater than the compressor run current. You might be able to get by with that PID. Disconnect the defrost [email protected] Any way you can get get a good measurement on the current draw?

I am using one of these devices and I am having the damnedest time trying to dial in the temperature. Is there a limitation of the temperature range of operation. I am getting a 4 degree rise when the door is closed on the freezer (where the box sits, 20F) and the fridge is 50F.

Just FYI I am an electrical engineer so I have at least an idea of what I am doing.

What kind of temperature probe are you using? Type K thermocouple, RTD pt100, etc etc?

Is the controller mounted in the freezer door?

You shouldnt be having a problem reading in the 20s. Its confusing as to why you would get a temp rise if you shut the freezer door.

I was hoping to hook up a light bulb to provide he to keep a constant temperature in the winter time. How would I took a mechanic's light and stripped the ends of it off for this purpose. But I can't get it working. Any idea's on how to hook this up?

Does this completely cut the electricity to the freezer? Do you think it will cause issue to the compressor after come time of off and on?

Nope, thats how the original thermostat in the freezer works. Only difference is you'll be doing it at a different temperature.

Can you share the program settings for this 2362 model?

I'm not sure if anyone has seen this, and I know this post is relatively old, however, here is the info and link the auber instruments manual for the Syl-2352 which covers how to wire the controller for both controlling your refrig/freezer AND heating with the same control:

-----------------------------------------------------
This is an example for beer fermentation. The refrigerator is driven by the
internal relay of the controller directly. Please note that the internal relay
output (terminals 7 and 8) is not powered by itself. A power supply must
be used to drive the external relay. The refrigerator must consume less
current than the internal relays maximum rating (7A at 240V AC and 10A at
120V AC). The bulb (less than 100-300 W) is for heating. The example is
setup to have the heater to turn on when temperature drops to below 60 F
and turns off at 64 F. The refrigerator will turn on when temperature is above
69 F and turn off at 65 F.
Set up for the controller
1) Hy = 2.0. Set both hysteresis band for heater and cooler to 2 degree.
2) COOL=9. Set the controller to cooling mode, no alarm suppression,
Fahrenheit temperature unit display.
3) AT=0. Set the controller main output to on/off control mode for refrigerator
compressor control
4) ALM2=62. Set the low limit alarm to 62 F. Heater will be on at 60 F
(ALM2-Hy) and off at 64 F (ALM2+Hy)
5) SV=67. Refrigerator will be on at 69 F (SV+Hy) and off at 65 F (SV-Hy).

looks like I posted the wrong part number, it should SYL-2342
