Refer thermostat....

Anyone know if these Chinese thermostats being sold on ebay will work with a danfoss 12v compressor? It's basically looking for a closed circuit to start the compressor.

Re: Refer thermostat....

Current rating has plenty of capacity for a straight connection or relay circuit... It should work just dandy....

Re: Refer thermostat....

As long as the High and low temp cut-ins and outs match the thermostat you have, they should work fine. So check out the in/out points on the stat you have now to be sure you won't be screwing up the efficiency of your unit. Thermostat come in all different cut in/out temperature bands.
