Greetings I'm kind of in the same boat as far as looking for a dimmer type setup.

I was wondering would this http://tinyurl.com/cye7wys work for a 1500W heating element and if so how would I go about it.

Thank you

-Z

I may be wrong, but i think that just plugs into small electric appliances, such as a griddle. My electric griddle has a very similar thermostat on it.

Mikey,

While I understand that it plugs into small appliances they are still rated at 1500W so that makes me wonder if it could be used as a controller for a 1500W heating element. And if so how would one go about it.

Cheers

You'd need to take it apart and check out how its wired. If you're a tinkerer and own a voltage tester, i would think it could be figured out.

I bought one after seeing the post and have used on one 10 gal brew and a couple trial runs with water. I have it hooked up to a 5500 watt Camco, brings 12 gallon of wort to a boil in about 50 min. Then I back it down about half to 3/4 and it boils consistent for an hour. I have a 120 mm case fan on the heat sink. Im satisfied with it.
