Yes. They are sending a temp probe and a circuit board. However, I am wondering after the warranty is up. These things will need parts all the time. Seems to me this was designed by a kid in grade 10 science class. I would of paid more for better quality parts.

Replaced the circuit board and temp probe. Seems okay, everything back to normal. I still want to install a fan to draw some hot air out from underneath it.

Took mine for its maiden voyage last night and really took it for a spin. 70/30 pils/raw wheat, in a turbid mash. All went well until i hit my second rest, and temp started reading high. 20 degrees high.... once i figured that out i just had to adjust my setpoints...


Hit my numbers bang on but had an extra gallon of wort, due to my improved efficency even with raw wheat.

Figured out why temp was so high while cleaning today. Scorched a bunch of wheat protien because of my recipe and it insulated the coil and probe.

Installed a bathroom fan I found in my garage underneath the milk crate. Sucked out hot air from inside the unit. Worked pretty good. No stats, but just by putting my hand on the bottom part. It was very warm instead of very hot with my first brew.
