Hi all, I have a couple of items that use 1500 watt elements and need to be able to adjust the temperature on them. Both are wired where they are either full on or full off, no in between. One is a meat smoker and the other a boiler with a submerged element. I have been trying to use a surface burner controller off an old GE electric cooktop. The problem is that it is just full on or full off with no between. The switch is of course 220v and I am running it 110v. Is there some way to hook this up so I can get it to adjust the temperature? The switch has L1 and L2 for the inputs and H1 and H2 for the outputs to the burner. I simply wired it into an extension cord so I can move it from the smoker to the boil pot. Any suggestions??
