How to fix chiller?
I have a sealine sl 300a chiller. My display board temp will rise up to a 100 . But my water temp will drop to50 or lower. And this is when I set it to 70. So how do I fix it?

Do you have an owner's manual?  Perhaps you should contact the manufacturer and see what they suggest?  Chillers are sort of complicated and if they are fooled with too much then the warrantees are voided, so be sure to check into that if it has a warrantee.

The company went out of business so time Ago. But I did get a solution. I'm building a temperature control. Here's the build I'm copying. Just waiting on the parts to get here. https://youtu.be/-VLX2LhcC2U

That is maddening when the company goes out of buisness. It happened to me as well with a polarbear chiller.  The next chiller I bought was a Coralife.  I decided a big name like that probably wasn't as likely to go under.
Hey good luck with the diy controller.  You seem like a pretty handy guy so I expect it will work just fine.

Good for you and definitely cheaper than a new chiller which is not cheap!
