SOURCE: Need to Install a Supco 3 n 1 start capacitor

3 in 1 starters like the supco that you have pictured can and will cause premature failure of your compressor. newer compressors are not designed to handle the start up current the 3-n-1 provides. I reccomend replaing wiht an original oem part the part number is 8201786. If you still want to use the hard start use the 410 model obviously hook up the red white and blak wires to the compressor the 2 left over leads will connect to the 2 original wires that come in to the compressor I beleive they are red and white. polarity does not matter. good luck Peyton

SOURCE: Compressor problem, installing the Supco 3-in-1 Relay

Hi, If the 3 posts are top center and bottom right left, the black wire goes top the top center post. The red wire will go to the bottom right and the white goes to bottom left.
If the posts are bottom center and top right left, the black goes on bottom center and the red goes top left. The white goes top right.
If you do not see a capacitor, disregaurd the wires in the 3-1
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Not sure how to wire

while i loath those RO41 because your compressor will be dead SOON. The 2 black wires connect to the wires were connected to the wiring on FACTORY RELAY AND OVERLOAD WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY CONNECTED TO WHERE THE RED/WHITE/AND BLACK WIRES WITH THE TERMINALS NOW ARE.

my advice though is throw that thing in the trash and get factory OEM relay and overload

SOURCE: Supco wiring an old freezer. Orange wire?

Was the orange wire on a switched live on the old compressor connections? It may come on when the compressor goes off in that case. If not, recheck the schematic for the other end of the heater. If it has a neutral, join the orange to the live feed to the supco. If it has a live, leave the orange on the neutral of the supco.

I had the same problem with a small wine cooler. It happened to me twice in 6 years. Both times I had to replace the starter relay.

I couldn't find any repair facilities willing to work on these small wine coolers or refrigerators, probably because the bill would be more than the used fridge is worth. If you feel confident around a volt/ohm meter and electricity, you could learn how to test this and maybe fix it yourself.

You shouldn't do any of this if you aren't familiar with using a Volt/Ohm meter and can safely and confidently work around electricity.:

  1. Unplug the fridge
  2. I first tested the compressor with an Ohm Meter (see how with youtube video below or by reading how at Davesrepair.com). It was good, but it kept starting and stopping within a few seconds.
  3. Basically my starter capacitor/relay wasn't working. It supplies temporary starting voltage to the starter relay in the compressor, then cuts off to allow the motor to run.
  4. I bought a Supco 3-in-1 on Amazon for less than $13 and hooked it up according to the supplied instructions. It lasted about 3 years.
Of course, the factory recommended repair is to buy the original replacement relay, but it will be more costly and harder to find.

I bought a Supco 3 in 1 Hard Start relay sized for the HP on my compressor. Mine was the Supco RCO810 (see link below).

NOTE: Before I replaced the starter relay and overload protection with a Supco 3 in 1, I learned how to test the compressor with a Volt/Ohm meter. If you don't have a meter, you can buy them online or inexpensive to free with a coupon at Harbor Freight.

Most commonly people would use a splitter cable with one male prong and two female prongs at the other end. These are "phono" or "rca" type plugs and the cheapest place to get them is a hardware store. Hope you understand my explanation. Good luck, Russmann.

Do you have a wiring diagram for a 50 amp male plug using 6-3 wire?


The configuration of the plug may vary by design but the way it is wired is the same no matter the plug configuration. Using 6/3 wire with no neutral white wire you simply connect the the Green ground to the ground on the male plug and the black and red wires to the other two plugs. Does not matter which. The is a 3 prong male plug. If you are using 6/3 with ground then connect the ground to the green ground plug, the white the direct opposite side as the ground and the red & black to the X & Y plugs, either one. This is a 4 prong male plug. If you are using a NEMA locking plug the lug that is bent is the ground. Connect the green ground wire there and the two other wires to the other lugs. Does not matter which one as each is carrying 120 volts. Look at the photo below. The plug on the left is a typical 3 prong plug. Notice the ground is connected to the top U shaped ground connection. The remaining 2 hots are connected to the two other lugs. On the right you see a 4 prong plug. You have the extra lug for the neutral. 9e28e8d.png
