I suspect it is a sensor, possibly for the defrost circuit. Can you post a picture?

I think the sensor is on the right side wrapped in white plastic, j

That looks like a ground wire that connects to the metal cover you took off. Where does the other end lead to?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the cover is plastic, as seen in pic., one end is attached to copper element -ground makes sense, but other end has a "male" end which is made of aluminium. I don't know where this part could be attached to. Everything is in working order but was curious if there is any foreseeable negative repercussions.

Is it going into the copper tube that is large on the left side of the coil?

I suspect it is a ground but the service info does not specify and I have not seen that before. If it is running and cooling fine, I don't expect it to cause any issues.
