I know that there are other posts about this, but they don't seem to follow with the schematic of my controller. I just want to use an extention cord, not splice into the compressor relay. I have a TS-13010 that looks like this:

7-Power Supply
8-Power Supply
9-NC (means normally closed i believe)
10-COM (means common i believe)
11-NO (means Normally Open i believe)

i have an extention cord:
green - ground
white- common
black-hot

I think that I leave the ground and common alone and splice the Hot from wall --> com
NC --> fridge

my question is what do I do with 7 and 8 then?

Supply 120 VAC to 7 and 8 there where it gets its power to operate.

Love TS-13010 Temperature Switch - New Wiring (2008+)

The only question in this one is the splice in the ground...I wired up my outlet and have the extension cord from the wall in place, all i need to do is get the controller (Monday morning) and hook it up. Right now I'm following this diagram and not touching the ground, just going straight from wall to outlet.

Is there a particular reason you're not splicing directly to compressor?It's only a little more work than going from your extension cord but not any more difficult. Plus it looks real cool if you mount into your fridge!

I don't have the fridge yet, and I don't want to cut off the end of the cord. I'll probably end up up-grading at some point and want the thing intact without having to go back and put one on. Also I can move this from place to place (my wife will also use it for heating an orchid room) and use it with different appliances. Once I build a fermentation chamber I'll wire it directly and mount it on the box.
