Brand newbie to a chiller project;
The obligatory first pic:
My question is this: What I want to try and do is wire a bypass to the thermostat so that the system can operate as a just less than ambient water chiller in most instances.... and an xtreme chiller at others.
The problem is that when I either cut the wires to the thermostat or bridge them, the ac unit does not operate at all.
I know I can directly wire it and get rid of the controls, but can I do both? I'm an electricity dummie and am not sure if am explaining this properly..... If I direct wire the fan and compressor to power through a switch, will I have problems 'back feeding' the existing wiring/circuitry in trying to operate the unit using the controls as well.
Thanks for trying to understand!
