i'll rely on the heaters in-built thermostat as the stc-1000 dosent have a memory so in the advent of power loss it resets its settings which may npot be at the temp you want them at as for it not powering the heaters or fans i used the one power cord with short jumpers to the other circuits here is a circuit i drew up for friend for this unit he only wanted it for heating but you can see what ive done with the wiring anyway

from memory it resets to 25( so may not have been a problem for you) but you lose stuff like calibration ( if any was needed) and compressor delay
I unplugged mine the other day...it kept its memory...

i went and tested mine ( not currently set up) it didnt hold its memory perhaps they have upgraded it as mine is at least 3 years old
Mine is an stc-1000. I unplugged it. Every setting stayed to what I set!

Fuji makes excellent quality temperature controllers, and you can often find them for decently cheap on Ebay... they'll require you to run a separate solid state relay to control your device(s), but it's worth it for the peace of mind and flexibility.
Also keep in mind that your controller can only read temperature as accurately as the probe you buy - omega.com is definitely the place to find good probes. My NQXL has been above 1200 F and below -108 F and looks just like the day I got it (other than a slight change of color). Omega probes are great at minimizing the temperature drift associated with extreme temperatures.
