Digital thermostat into 40ltr Platinum Engel

Has any body done this mod. Seen pictures of it done for the 12v side only , but no wiring diagrams. I don't mind cutting and soldering. They leave the temp dial on 5 then use the new thermostat and probe to run it at the set temp and perameters. Looking at an STC 1000 or similar.

cheers Matt

I fitted a XD-W2308 to our Vitrifrigo with great success. Unit mounted on cupboard wall outside fridge. Probe fed through the drip pipe for defrosting. I cut the main 12v positive feed for the fridge and used the thermostat to power a relay. Works brilliantly. If doing it to an Engel I would consider running the probe simply taped inside. Cut the 12v positive feed wire to power the thermostat, don't mess with the fridge. Set the fridge thermostat to max. Beauty of it is a digital real time display of fridge temp.
