Hi there,This would be quite a difficult modification.An easier way to get a digital temperature readout would be to use the following:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TM803-Fridge-Refrigerator-Freezer-Digital-Alarm-Thermometer-Temperature-Meter-/191238906805

thank you sorry if i sounded rude but i was not meaning to but thank you for your help do you think its an easy job to convert the fridge in the way i am hoping to

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Not at all, you are quite alright! :)
Yes, it should be straightfoward to use the digital thermostat to control the internal temperature of the fridge, however it will need to be located inside the fridge to detect its temperature.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

do you mean the probe located inside the fridge

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Yes, you could just put the wires in through the sealed door area, or you may want to drill a small hole in and seal it up.

the stat in the video will it work from 240v uk power

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Yes, the stat will work on UK 240V mains power.

i am now having problems finding one of those stats on ebay that are cheapish and say they are ok with 240v uk power

Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Hi,
The stat you originally posted works on the UK - the video is for the same stat.
They work on a range of voltages - 90-250V 110/220/240V.
