Fixed the problem

The Capacitor did not fit correctly as the connection tabs were too wide, had to trim them, the plug did not fit and had to install pig tails. It did correct the problem with the compressor not starting properly..

NOT a direct replacement

It doesn’t fit and needs extensive modification with pigtails to connect.

Part States it is a Substitution-NOT

The part clearly stated that it was a substitution for an older part number. Unfortunately this is NOT the case. It was not where near the style of the old part. A week later and we are still trying to repair our freezer. We have had to make adjustments to this part and order a second part which has not arrived yet. So still not sure if this will fix the problem.
