I would think the extension cord hooks up to 7 & 8...black + white -

Then 11 & 10 for the compressor relay off your fridge...

Do you know which wires you need to hook up to the controller from the fridge?

I'm sure someone else will chime in with more advice....

You are going to use pins 10 and 11. Do you have a picture of the wiring diagram on the fridge? It is probably on the back or some thing. If not put a model # of the fridge and we might be able to find something.

You really want to use the relay circuit the thermostat in the fridge uses. So get us some diagrams

Ed, That will work. However as a mater of practice it is better to put the Line on the NO pin and the Common to the fridge. This way power isnt on the NC pin when the relay is de-energized.

using that diagram and the icons on my diagram I believe I figured it out. When I hold the set button however it gives me 0 and I can select 255 - 0. Is that the temp I want? I dont understand the programming portion
