Bump for an answer to this.

STC-1000 fuse or no fuse? I'm in an apartment and I can't mess with building electrical or I'll get evicted.

Appreciate any help, thanks.

A fuse would help if it happened to be on a 20 amp circuit. Also would keep everything else on the circuit running.

I did end up adding a fuse in line in my wiring. I think it was a 15amp slow-blow fuse?

I actually have this up and running now on my DIY fermentation chamber. Its working perfectly. I ended up using a diagram from Revvy (I think).

I have 3 dual outlets hooked up. 1 dual outlet is for cooling (compressor and fan to run while its on), 1 dual outlet is for heating (heat source and fan to run while its on), and 1 dual outlet is always on, in case I need constant power for something like a stirplate, or if I want to add an interior light later on.

Thanks. Is there a 14 gauge inline fuse holder from Radio Shack? When I went there today all they had was the 18 gauge automotive unit. This is what I'm referring to:

Can I use this wired to an extension cable even though there are differences in wire gauge?

Thanks for the help.

I believe this is the fuse holder that I used, although I don't remember mine being 30amp. This is from home depot. I also got a pack of fuses, both fast and slow-blowing fuses.
