Total Malfunction
« on: November 06, 2016, 12:20:09 AM »
My most recent experience with this controller is a total lockup and cooked my wort instead of fermenting it.
As I was going away for about 10 days I thought I would get a lager down and let the Fermostat take care of the fermentation process.
I set the unit to used the default lager program and let it to do its job. When I returned from vacation 10 days later my wort was sitting at 149F
and the Fermostat was totally locked up....not button functionality,no screen backlight, but the screen did display what the unit was doing....,cooking!!
Has anyone else had this problem, is there a fix so it won't happen again.
Im pretty disappointed so I would like to sort this issue out before I use the Fermostat again.
