Default Easystart Timer and external temp sensor?

Has anyone else had erratic performance of the external sensor?

It seems to read around 5F high and at one point it read 116F when it was in the 70s.

Sounds like a bad connection to me. You can check it with a ohm meter, there is a table in the service manual with the temp to resistance correlation.

So, I checked with a meter and the sensor seemed to check out fine.

I decided to abandon the espar one and follow the thread here on making your own. The temp sensing is much more stable.
