Capacitor

This capacitor is also known as a run capacitor, and it is most often used in refrigerators and freezers. This part provides the voltage or energy current required to start the compressor and keep it running. It allows the compressor in your appliance to easily cycle on and off. Doing so enables the appliance to effortlessly maintain its internal temperature. If the capacitor is faulty your refrigerator or freezer might be too warm, or you may notice the compressor will hum, but it will not run. When replacing your capacitor, you should check the old one for any signs of damage, overheating, or arcing, as that may suggest there is a bigger problem with your appliance.

Freezer Door Key

This metal freezer door key has a cross shape and is approximately 2 inches long. If your freezer door will not stay shut, you can use the key as a quick fix to keep it closed. If your key will not lock, or unlock the freezer door, check to see if it has been bent or damaged. If the key is damaged, you should look to replace it to avoid damaging the lock. The key should engage the locking mechanism with ease. If the lock sticks when you turn the key, penetrating fluid should be used to loosen the mechanism. These keys are sold separately, and should be stored somewhere safe and not next to the unit.
