Esshup,
Without knowing what type of temp sensor it is, the best thing to do would be to twist them up real well and heat shrink them individually. Adding other metals like solder or connectors that are not specific for that type of sensor could throw it off. Best to keep the wire lengths close, as this may have been calibrated for the specific length of wire.

Post info on the sensor, if you have it.

They didn't say anything about the sensor type.

Is the sensor wire solid or stranded construction?

If you peel back the outer sheath, are the wires inside the sheath color coded? If so, we can tell what it is by the color coding. It would be important to know that just to splice it. Also need the country of origin to determine the color code.

Let's find this out next.

esshup,
Any progress?

It really is not typical for consumer goods to follow any standards, as industrial/process systems do.

We may just be trying to climb a greasy rope here.

Okay...........

From what I can tell it's made in Italy. "Politecnica 80" Cadoneghe (PD) Italy (followed by phone and fax numbers)

I may be in luck. I don't remember if the one that I installed is like this, but if it is, problem is solved. All the wires plug into the back of the unit via 2 different connectors.

I DO remember the one that I installed didn't have English as one of the instruction/operating languages that was in the manual. Now THAT was fun to install and figure out how it worked! This one does.
