Its going to be mounted in the top panel where there is 2 switch relays for a fan and a light. When you open the panel you have access to brown, both blacks, and white, the ground is screwed to metal. White wires are pig tailed for the lights already. All other wires go to the switches & temp control.
Be careful with actually putting the STC itself inside the fridge. That's probably a condensing environment. Bad news for electronics.

HOT = SMOOTH/BLACK to 1& 7
Neutral = WHITE to 2
Switched HOT = RIBBED/BLACKWHITE to 8

I would recommend disconnecting the existing temperature control by removing one or both wires connected to it. These wires could actually be extended to your new controller for the 1&7 and 8 connections.

I would also recommend attaching the probe, covered by insulation, to the keg or carboy of beer whose temperature you are trying to control. It will save you a lot of headaches.

Leave the FAN switch in the non-constant-on position. Let the condenser fan cycle with the compressor.

I have a commercial cooler with an STC1000 type controller in use as a fermentation chamber. The only time I have issues with condensation on the inside is when I raise the temperature for diacetyl rest / yeast clean-up and I manage that using damp-rid. Otherwise, the constant air movement and cooling cycles remove moisture very well. A refrigerator, especially a commercial one, functions much different than a keezer in the area of moisture control.
