If you are using a fridge then a 60watt lamp will do the job

I drilled a hole in the back of my fridge for the tube heater wire. Made sure it wasn't where any piping was.

I fed the sensor into the fridge via the drain plug.

All in all, it took 30 minutes to set up it all up.

Good plan. I was going to drill through the door for heater cable and just shut the sensor cable in the door for now, as it won't be a unit dedicated to the fridge. Santa Claus might bring another one, in which case I will fit it into the door and have all the gubbins inside.
