ITC-1000 Wiring Question

Postby BeerPal » Sun Feb 22, 2015 9:54 am

OK- complete noob question. I wired up my ITC-1000 (Farenheit version of STC-1000 temp controller) and it seems to work fine, but when I plug my circuit tester into the heating side, I get a "Hot/Neutral Reversed" light. Does this mean that I simply reversed the hot and neutral wires from the power cord? TIA.

Incredible that they actually had a warning light for that. Glad you got it fixed.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

Actually it is a standard test plug that you can buy and plug into any outlet to check for polarity, ground and reversed. Comes in handy when you are re-doing lots of older wiring.
