My 5 year old switch just died also. I just ordered mine from CA also. Thanks for the advice on the phone wire. It will keep me going until my new switch arrives. I agree with you about the gal on the phone. Very friendly and helpful.
It's got to be a thermister. I tried shorting the whole thing and that didn't work, and I'm fresh out of 1KÎ© resistors. That's ok, I'm going to have the new switch overnighted. Thanks for the help, though.Bama Rambler said:If they use a standard thermocouple it would be easy. Just short both leads out and it would read ambient temperature. If they use a thermister it's looking for a resistance, somewhere near 1000Î© should be close. Got one of those laying around???
