Relay

Here, the relay has a total of three terminals the input terminal is to be connected to the thermostat from where it will be got the phase supply and the other two terminals are to be connected to the compressor start and run terminals.


OLP or Overload Protector

It is a safety device. When any fault happens with the compressor it will disconnect the power supply. Generally, it is connected in series with the neutral supply and the compressor common terminal.


Door Switch

It is connected in series with the lamp. It helps to turn on or turn off the light during the closing and opening of the refrigerator door. When we open the door it allows the supply to the lamp and the lamp will glow, and when we close the door it disconnects the power supply and the lamp or bulb will turn off.
