most ghetto jumper cable to test the Ranco Digital Temp Controller - The lid connections needed to be completed for the freezer to turn on and I am all out of romex.
I am still curious to know, if possible, how I can bypass connecting the wiring harness to the lid. Can anyone instruct me by looking at the diagram. I can do some elementary electrical connections but, beyond simple, I am lost. I know the (4) wires in the jumper say NC, N OPEN, and COM and the White Wire isn't labeled. I just don't need the light or the auto defrost to activate a heater. For anyone who is using a Ranco controller, what temp differential would you use? I also noticed that you can wire four temp probes in series to get an average temperature in the chest. Might be a useful feature down the road. No comments on the original freezer thermostat setting? I assume keeping it at the lowest temp setting would make the most sense bc it's never going to reach that temp and the Ranco will control everything warmer.
