looks like they're both coming from power cords, but where do those go?

Is the freezer missing the temp controller?

Based on this pic it looks like silver thing is the back. I assume its a capacitor of some kind.

This pdf shows the wiring diagram for freezers that use the same compressor.

Ok here you go.

Based on the model# you should look at the RSCR-PTC diagram. I would guess you are missing the starting capacitor and or the overload protector.

Gotta say.... makes one wonder if the reason that someone pillaged those parts from it is because the compressor is shot or it has a coolant leak.

Yeah, no idea on the history. It's a haierHBF05EBSS-01. From the PDF it looks like both the starting capacitor and the overload protector. Bummer. Anybody think there is a reason to invest more time etc?
