Hi, I'm trying to replace the mechanical thermostat in my mini fridge with a digital one that requires me to tap into the neutral power line, and there isn't a neutral wire inside the fridge. Does anyone here know how to open this plastic junction box next to the compressor?
it looks like the power cord goes into that, which would probably be the easiest/cleanest way of splicing into it.

I was able to get some help and figured out how to remove the cover. Doesn't look like I can delete this post, so if anyone else runs into this problem, you stick a flat head in the top tab and push the handle down, so that the top pushes up. There's a tab under there holding it in place.

I was struggling with the same thing on a different model yesterday...I wish I had seen this earlier, almost next to impossible to decipher the pictogram instructions on the side...
