Nice build. Jealous of your setup.

I think he means from from the outlet to the plug. Because you made 2 powers go to the outlet. Hopefully rjharper will verify.http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pimp-my-system/build-temperature-controller/
The instructions on this say to wire black to 1, 5 & 6 but the diagram says 1,5 & 7. You may want to fix that.
Perfect timing on this since I just bought one of these temp controllers a couple weeks ago. Thanks!
Good catch. I updated the directions to be inline with diagram.QuoteYeah, and it looks like the white wire for connection #2, and the upper outlet should actually go to the white wires' orange connector. The internal relay is good for 10A but larger freezers can draw 12+A on spooling up. When I build my second controller I bought a couple of 25A solid state relays that I drive with the TC.
I hadn't seen anything about this in my research. Are you saying just go from STC-1000 connection #2 to the orange wire connector instead of going into the outlet? Where do the solid state relays come into play?
Edit: Found this pic from someone who gutted the STC-1000, which I think shows that the relay is rated to 15A
