Thanks to everyone who contributed photos, diagrams and details to this thread. I finished my temperature controller box last night and I now have my first keg carbing in my keezer. Next project: make my first lager.

Just wondering if it is necessary to use such expensive outlets vs cheaper ones that have similar shape. For example I see a bunch of people using http://www.homedepot.com/buy/leviton...l#.UPYJuaHjl4U so would this be acceptable instead http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...8#.UPYLEqHjl4U ? Thanks in advance for any advice you all may have.

I hardwired mine right into the freezer. I think that it's cleaner and more convenient.

Definitely went with the cheaper outlets to save about $10 a controller, especially when you buy the 10 pack. Needed 2 and a friend wanted one so much more cost effective. Thanks for the awesome wiring diagrams, super easy to follow and completed two boxes in less than 2 hours.

So....I wired up one of these today, and the heating side works as expected, but I get no power for cooling. I have checked and re-checked the wiring for that path, even going so far as to completely rewire the entire path from the incoming power cord all the way through the controller and to that outlet, but still it doesn't work. My wife has moved my outlet tester and multimeter somewhere I can't find it and she's out shopping. Otherwise, I'd be able to tell you more details about where power is getting. However, the wiring on these things is pretty straightforward so I have to think that at least there is power getting to the "cooling" relay.

When the heating side turns on, there is an audible click from the relay, but I don't really get the same click for cooling, leading me to believe perhaps I have a faulty relay in my controller. Anyone else run into issues like this?

Are you waiting for the compressor delay? Is the cooling light flashing? In case you didn't know, the cooling side has a compressor delay feature, which prevents the relay from switching if it's been on recently. This is to protect the compressor from short cycling. It activates when the unit is first plugged in also.

Edit: If the cooling light is blinking, it means that it's in compressor delay status. The factory setting for the compressor delay is 3 min IIRC, but you can change it under menu item F3. I suggest maxing it out at 10 min.

Ah, I didn't know that. How long is the delay?
