Default Kegerator Wiring Help

Guys, I am trying to replace the current temp control relay with something a little more precise. I've attached a schematic of the wiring for my keggerator and would really appreciate some suggestions. I was thinking along the lines of a digital display for the current temp and being able to control the compressor so my temps are within about 3 degrees of what I set it to. Thanks in advance!

my advice it to just leave it all intact and switch the mains with a temp controller. turn the built in control down low. By doing it this way you'll leave all the protective features intact, it's much easier, and shouldn't be any more expensive.

Just run your hot lead through a Love Controller and you should be good to go.

This should help
