Default Wiring my Love controller

Unfortunately this thread is way more boring than the title might suggest.


So I have little to no experience in wiring. Buddy and I bought a Cole-Parmer controller and I wanted to post the schematics of my mini-fridge on here to see if anyone could help. The only exposed wiring I can seem to access on the inside of the fridge is that beneath the thermostat housing, which is just ground, red, and brown. The rest is on the outside of the mini-fridge at the bottom where the compressor is mounted. This makes me wonder how I'm going to get power to the Love controller. I also don't know what to hook up to the NC, COM, and NO on the controller. Any help would be appreciated - or if you're in Omaha, I'll pay you to do it in beer while I watch and try to learn something

I decided to go the extension cord route for now, as unattractive as it might be. I have my doubts the fridge will hold a lagering temp anyway and will possibly end up a kegerator long-term (so long as there's no coils up top).

My buddy got the wrong kind of extension/power cord as planned, so we did end up using the existing thermostat wiring (and using the power cord to solely power the Love) ...I guess I just needed to connect the two wires out of the thermostat to normally open and common. If I could run a jumper from the other power wire on the back of the fridge somehow inside the fridge, it'd be ideal, but I don't think I'll be capable, so this'll have to do:
