Definitely would love to hear on the settings though. One flaw I might have is placing my probe up high - I may need to relocate that because as soon as I open my lid the temp flies up almost instantaneously.
The freezer will eventually reach equilibrium inside. It can take a while as you noticed with your test.
In my ferment chamber, I tape the probe to the vessel halfway up. To me, it makes more sense to monitor the beer temp than some cup of water that I don't plan to drink anyway. I think that would apply in a keezer as well.
I haven't used the controller you have but why such a large differential? My Love's are both set at 0.5 and I do not get any cycling.
