    Hi all
    I bought a new thermostat for my new hatchery, but I have a problem with the connection.
    I got involved as follows:
    neutral remains connected to the plug to the bulb.
    I am alive and interconnect the plug, through the thermostat, the bulb.
    And while it only works as a switch.
    measured temperature and I am sure I have it connected in the wrong.
    If you have one idea in advance thank you.

    Really cool, never seen that type of thermostat before. Most people don't use a household thermostat.

    From what I understand, you said it works as a switch. What do you mean? Does it turn the light on and off, or does the light remain on all the time?
