    So I wasted an hour

    Waiting for this brand new fan delay to turn my fans on, and after an hour passed I get my ohm meter out and find it's defective out of the box

    Either hit on gals at the bar to make it worth your time or use liquid refrigerant to benchtest
    Honeywell you can buy better but you cant pay more

    If you got paid, I hardly see it as being wasted

    I'm running more & more against stuff out of the box with not working at all or in some form defective. Hard to price for this stuff that should not be happening.

    Just a wild guess was it the blue-wire zero zone klixon?

    I had 2 out 3 that I thought were bad out of the box once.

    Nobody told me you had to "activate" them by hitting them with a screwdriver handle. :Grin:

    I once ordered/received a replacement ice cube relay (for some oven I'd looked at). I drove 45 miles to install it. It didn't work. I pried the black plastic cover off of it and...
    NO coil.
    NO contacts.
    It was EMPTY.

    That's so silly. An ice-cube relay in an oven application? It would surely melt!

    Not really. Muffin fans cool the control box. PCBs are common in 'em too.

    Lately, capacative touch screens like on your smart phone are features in commercial ovens, fryers, etc.

    Modern technology has become SO much more prevalent...and EXPENSIVE for repairs on commercial cooking equipment.
