Hey,

I know this is a noob question but I need some help. I bought a fridge off craigslist and my ranco controller came in today. I am not good with electronics but I was wondering where do I hook the controller up to? Do I have to take the back part of the fridge off? I read the instructions but I dont really understand it. Here is the controller that I got. Ranco Digital Temperature Controller - Wired | MoreBeer

Thanks

With that it REALLY simple.

Set the fridge thermostat to it's coldest setting.
Plug the fridge into the controller outlet.
Plug the controller into the wall.
Route probe wire into fridge.

Read about setpoint adjustment in the manual. Set it and forget it.

Done.

The Ranco truly is a great lil' device. I have 2 and love them equally.
