I'm going to need help this week with my Love. Where did you get the freezer schematics?
On most freezers there is a little pocket around back that will have a schematic. Both of mine had this as well as a sticker on the back with the schematic. There is plenty of help on this board. I just went through this and could probably help you out if you post a freezer schematic and LOVE model number

Cool, so how are the new ones different. I am about to buy another. I "love" this thing... ba dum ching. I really like how small they are compared to the Ranco or Johnson Controls. Makes for a really clean looking install in a fridge/freezer/other.

He is simply splicing the Love Control in-line with an extension cord so that he does not modify the freezer circuitry or wiring at all. This cuts power to the freezer until the temperature rises above the set-point.
In this diagram, pin 7 is spliced to the neutral and the ground is spliced back to itself (because he is cutting an extension cord in half).
If you want to just cut the compressor because you want the power indicator light or the interior light to operate, you need to bypass the thermostat only like in the diagram that IrregularPulse posted (but with #7 going to neutral and not ground).
