Fridge Thermostat Wiring Diagram - Fridge Thermostat Connection

In Thermostat switch we have two types of connection, in which one is for main and other for out going to compressor, in some thermostat switches we have main or common connection with two terminal in which one is for incoming supply and other one for light.
In some thermostat we have only two connection in which one is for incoming and other on is for outgoing to load or compressor.
fridge thermostat wiring connection is done in series connection, my means that this instill between compressor and supply current.
In fridge, the supply one wire goes to the ptc relay and other one goes to thermostat from which the 2nd wire goes to compressor. Direct cool refrigerator and no frost refrigerator wiring is different but if we talk about fridge thermostat wiring diagram and connection , so this same in both.
Now lets' the below fridge thermostat instillation / connection diagram for completely understanding
