When you reach for the door on your refrigerator, you expect it to be cold inside. But have you ever wondered how it gets that way? We’ve talked about a few parts that help with this in the past like the Start Relay, the Overload, the Evaporator Fan Motor, the Compressor…the list goes on (you can read about those here).
