As above get a sparky, your post makes little sense and if your going to play with 240v I'm concerned for your safety.

where abouts are you in Cairns? My dad lives in Cairns is a retired sparky and could probably steer you in the right direction. Hes in Caravonica.

Basically from what I can see p1 is active in 2 is active out to the defrost timer and 1 is earth. BUT DONT QUOTE ME ON THAT>

I will ask Dad if hes willing to help and if so give you his email address. if you could take the fridge to his house he might even wire it up for some HB. But dont quote me on that.

EDIT: Got the numbers around the wrong way.

Why not use an external thermostat like the good old STC1000? Requires no modifications to your freezer that way.

thanks for that well thought out reply...
In all honesty, it was a perfectly thought out reply
your description was rather vague so that lead me to believe you don't have too much experience in working with and electrical source that can potentially kill you
I've had mates land themselves in hospital (luckily none dead) playing about with 240v without a decent understanding of electrical circuits
I spent some time wiring up heating elements/thermal cutouts/ducting heaters in a previous job so i have a small bit of knowledge in the subject, but i still always get a sparky mate to check over my work because i'm not certified and don't know everything
It pays to be extra cautious around something that could easily kill you

Always a good idea to get a sparky or appliance repair person.... even a belt off a charged Capacitor can kill you.....

good to see you got it sorted VIA a sparky rather than taking a stab at it....

Any chance you can post what the terminals were, cause what I though was different
