How to Replace a Capacitor in an Indesit Fridge Freezer

How to Replace a Capacitor in an Indesit Fridge Freezer
All you need is a Phillips Screwdriver and some long-nosed pliers. To remove this casing, first clear the plug. Next, pull the screw that holds it in place. Remove the top screw holding the starter down. You can then gently move the starter away from the metal bracket. Take a photo to ensure that all wires are placed correctly. To remove the connectors using long-nosed grippers, grasp the connectors’ ends and push as shown. If you want to remove the connectors, either use the small flat-head screws as shown or look underneath the connectors. There will be a tiny hole that holds the connector clipped into place. You can pull the connector away and push it up to loosen it. Removing the connector with a paperclip or a small pin should be possible. Pull the sides to remove the capacitor. Push it through the mount’s hole. Connect the blue and brown wires to the capacitor’s previous location. You are now ready to proceed.

You can attach the starter back into the device and then screw the top nut back in. The plastic housing should be attached, and the screw screwed back in. Finally, connect the capacitor to the back. Pass it through the holes as shown. The click should be audible.
It’s done!

My dryer was giving me problems so I decided to give SD Appliance Repair a try. They were friendly.  They were willing to work around my schedule.  They came within 24hrs.  They fixed my dryer within an hour. I will definitely call them again if I need another repair!.

VERY responsive!  I called the guys on Thursday afternoon for a dishwasher issue and they came by the next day to diagnose the problem.  Turns out I needed a new motor, which the guys ordered, picked up on a Saturday morning, and installed right away.

I had a hard time finding someone who would work on my stove be course it was quite old. The repairman arrived during the time they said he would, diagnosed the problem, and fixed it for a reasonable price. I will definitely use them again!
