Default Upright Freezer Ferm Chamber

Found my donor off Craigslist for $50 bucks.

Freezer Make: Frigidaire
Freezer Model: FFU14FC4CW7
Temp Controller: TSS2



Cut Green, White, and Intercept Black going into the thermostat. Wiring diagram HERE



Still need to cleanup the wiring...



Still need to wire in my outlet for my space heater. I live in Texas so I'm in no rush.





Working like a champ...but still going through some trials before I trust my beer in it.

I Love my Love Temp Controllers!

Cool, I bought a chest freezer last year to turn into a ferm chamber, but the wife started to put food in it...WTF?, right?

So she gave me a donated minifridge that I built a ferm chamber out of:
