Re: Sutronics BFM240-13 3kw Burst-Fired Power Controller help???

Hi TR, I ended up pulling out the dry boil sensor and now it works like it should've in the first place! Its a bit of a pain that it wouldn't work in its original configuration as it would've been a nice feature to have. I measured the temp of the controller under use today and it was running at 28 ...

Re: Sutronics BFM240-13 3kw Burst-Fired Power Controller help???

Hey Squidd, Your right with with the numbers and the components.

I think it was 36 pounds,...

Hi rad,

I was thinking the same thing. Today I'll bypass the sensor and see if it works then. I'll post a pic of the box that

Cheers

G'day everyone, I used to run a pot still and I felt bad about all the water it was using so I made a worm condenser. I got a piece of 1/2" copper, 6 meters long and wound it round an oxy bottle. I cant remember what size, maybe 8". I found a 20 gallon steel drum and fitted it inside, brazing it in ...
