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.

Door Gasket

The door gasket is used on vertical freezers. Screws are no longer included with this product. The gasket creates a tight closure around the opening of the door to ensure that outside air does not enter the freezer, causing it to warm up. If you notice that your freezer is not closing properly, is not maintaining the proper temperature, or there is frost build up, it could be due to the breakdown of the door gasket. It is white in color. This is an easy repair that should not take longer than 60 minutes and only requires a nutdriver to fix.
