Question about Refrigerators
The capacitor is there to assist the compressor under start-up There is no switch that turns it on and off. compressor's uses a lot of power (AMPS) under start up so the capacitor (a device that that stores a charge) boosts the voltage to the compressor to assist it. in this case your compressor is 115v and your start capacitor boosts it to 125v. Sometimes if you have a bad compressor it can cause a capacitor to blow but rarely because all it does is store a charge and a bad compressor using allot of amps would drain the capacitor of its charge.
