I built out one of these this weekend. I'm an electrical noob as well, but I got it working and tested successfully without frying myself, lol. I followed CPs diagram and the diagrams posted in this thread, and pigtailed everything. It's a tight fit in the box, but it's working as advertised.

Also, in the second drawing, you don't need the wire if you leave the tab on the white side of the receptacle. If you've broken the tab you can just put a wire between the screws and be fine.
1) Yes, good idea. I'll edit my previous posts.
2) That's what I was thinking. I'll do that.

And that should do it. Tested it out with the outlet tester and the wiring checks out. Good job, me. And thanks to everybody else that told me how I did it wrong.

This is a nice controller. I'm glad I got it.

So you switched the power leg around? Did this new setup take care of your "open neutral" issue?

^ nice job. What's nice is you learn something new on projects like this and feel comfortable repairing and tweaking now too.

1 tip going forward is that when you are working electrical it really helps to use the correct colored wires just to keep things straight. If you buy a small roll of 14 guage electrical wire you can strip out sections of white/black/ground to use. Using solid wire instead of the stranded mess really cleans up connections and makes them safer. Pigtails and wirenuts make things a lot easier.

Yes. No more "open neutral" problem.

Thanks Lincoln. I rewired mine this morning and got rid of my open neutral issue.
