    The jumper allows the two functions of the control to be electrically isolated. Use a multimeter on the continuity or ohms range to check between the two terminals of the old control. Continuity/low resistance indicates the jumper is installed, no continuity/infinite resistance indicates it's removed.

    The jumper is in place as I can see it in the photo. What that means is the 120 volts feed to the fan side will also be on the limit side. That can be a problem if the limit side is wired through the secondary (24 volt side). In that case the jumper should be removed.

    Were there three wires on the old control, or four?
