Thank for asking.. I think your posts are great regarding anything wiring.

My only questions, which JuanMoore is helping with, is WHAT probes are available for it? He said there were replacements.. which I couldn't find on eBay.. mentioned also that there are even SS probes. I searched and found lots of probes.. but, have NO idea if they are compatible.

Good question! I'd like to know about this as well.

I just wired mine up thanks to Revvy's diagram. I also have a 220V stc-1000 that I've learned how to convert to 110v that I will use for my keezer build..

I recall a post several weeks back about it somewhere on here by Carlisle Bob, explaining about replacement probes for most of the common temp controllers. It was over my head. But iirc he made it seem that for the ebay temp controller finding the correct replacement probe, was nigh on impossible.

I'll try to pm him to say something about this.

I've read this quite a few times myself. It seems like there has to be something out there that will work, though!

Yeah. I'm sure there is, and Bob explained it, but it was WAAAAAYYYYY over my head. Maybe he can actually do some digging and link ones that will work for us idiots....

I don't know what Bob said, but it's very simple, and there are plenty of options out there. Any sensor of the same type that has the same resistance will work. The sensor for the STC-1000 is a fairly standard type; NTC thermistor and IIRC 10k ohm resistance at 25 degrees C. Emjay has posted a link a few times for the inexpensive SS probes he bought to replace the stock probes in his controllers. I'm on my phone now, but if I think of it later I'll find some links to suitable options and post them here.

Thanks Juan! I'd be interested in seeing any links you might have for the SS ones..

They're even easier to find (and much cheaper) as simple bare thermistors, if someone feels like making/finding a sleeve for them.
