Not tried that but it would be a pain in the **** to test, it occurs at random so you’d have to sit there holding the probe for a bit
Does it behave reliably like that whenever you're holding the sensor, even when it's connected up to a proper load (heater and/or refrigerator) ?
Interesting... is there any particular reason you say that? On the video @Bocker Wright posted it looked to be simultaneous - but I'll go back and have another look nowthe fault seems to change the measured temperature to cause the relay to switch, rather than the relay switching affecting the reading
Hi and apologies for the delay in getting back to your post, I haven't been on the forum for a while. In answer to your question, I have had no further luck with this - a replacement inkbird unit does exactly the same thing but just not as often as the original one so I have just got used to it happening.Hi Chrisb8 how did it turn out? I'm having exactly the same issue, it's only been out the box 4 days. Temp suddenly jumps a degree or so, switches on the fridge for a split second and straight back off while the temp drops back down again.

It is interesting to read the posts by @The-Engineer-That-Brews regarding electrical interference as I often wondered if this was the case - could the electrical wiring nearby or under the floor have an effect? I'm only making a guess...
No worries. It's a shame because it's such a simple and useful bit of kit but if a temperature controller can't read a steady temperature then it is really a serious flaw...Hi chrisb8. I exchanged it for a stc 1000 mangrove jacks unit in the end. I messaged a couple of topics on here trying to find an answer but I just thought side it, swap it. There's been others with the same problem we're not the only ones.
@Inkbird never did come back to answer concerns about the ITC-308 ...I have asked Inkbird to have a look at this thread.
So, I think the conclusion has to be:... It's a shame because it's such a simple and useful bit of kit but if a temperature controller can't read a steady temperature then it is really a serious flaw...
When the measured temperature PV >= TS (temperature set value) + CD (cooling differential value), system enters refrigeration status, the cool indicator light will on, and refrigeration relay starts to work; when the cool indicator light is flickering, it means the refrigeration equipment is under compressor delay protection status.
Thank you for the reply.Hello,
We are not very active here, so sorry for not giving you a timely reply. We provide more contact information on the personal introduction page. If you have any questions, you can always contact the seller support of the buying platform, our company email([email protected]), or FB team support, we will try our best to help you solve it and give you one satisfactory answer.
The problem of reading jumps do not seem to be equipment problems, but may be caused by the position of the probe. Could you kindly tell us more details and help check it? @chrisb8
@peebee @Bocker Wright PM sent and please check. Please be assured that we will make things easier for you and will do everything we can to prevent you from bearing any kind of loss.
