Hi there Brewbit buddies!
So I am pretty new to the MT and I have snooped around in the forum to see if there is anything similar, but I didn't find anything so I thought I would post and ask. And as a side note, I wasn't sure what to classify this as so I chose troubleshooting in case its user error.
I fired up the MT last night and at first had a bit of an issue. It wouldn't turn on the outlets even though the indicator was green. Goofed around with settings for a bit and finally decided to scrap the session and try a new one. That seemed to clear it on the 3rd try. So now it's turning on and off but I noticed an interesting behavior this morning.
If you look at the session (which is still running) you'l notice that for about 7 hours the hysteresis was acting as I would expect for a 2 degree setpoint. I have a temp setpoint of 68 and a compressor delay of 5 min. Very cyclic.
This morning a little after 7am you'll notice a sharp climb in temperature. This is because I notice the foam pack had cam away from my fermentor and was reading the air. I had reapplied the sensor at the point hence the quick rise. What is interesting is that after that point, my hysteresis is only acting on the top end and not the bottom. Meaning it will go to 70 degrees before kicking on the cooler but once it cools to 68 degrees immediately shuts down.
Mind you this is all the same session with no changes to programing once I had started.
Has anyone else noticed this? is it suppose to do this?
Thanks in advance for any guidance or explanation.
