The blue wire goes to the overload (common), the other two wires will go on either side of the relay.  If you have an orange wire put it on start.

Ill be glad to shed some light on this for and stand behind this as I too am a Factory authorized dealer. These units did come with faulty compressors failing about 80% of the time. What happens is the compressors get worn and stop starting properly. You can make them work temporarily by installing a 3n1 (basically makes the compressor have more starting torque). However they eventually get so worn that even a 3n1 cant start it. Ive never read any bulletins from any major company (Frigidaire used this same compressor) saying a 3n1 voids warranty. It certainly didnt damage the compressor it was already damaged when the tech installed the 3n1. Also these compressors are failing at such a high rate its not even questionable that the 3n1 damaged anything. Honestly it really sounds to me like the tech is nit-picking not wanting to do the labor intensive job of changing the compressor. He may not even be able to. Also the new compressor should be a 8201555 (I just did one this afternoon ---thats how common this is) and its a much more reliable Embraco compressor. Once its installed you should have no more compressor issues for many years. Feel free to have anyone who questions my solution to call anytime 850-510-9563 (Joey Shearer, Precision Appliance, Tallahassee, FL)

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: How do I wire the RCO410 into my maytag fridge?

look at the wiring on the relay, then if you have a techumseh compresser the top terminal is common with black wire going to it, the one on the bottom left is start with the white wire going to it, and the one on the bottom right is the run with the red wire goiung to it.

SOURCE: Haier model AES 44B, I need to know how to

Good day,
With a very accurate ohm meter zero'd out, and set to the lowest setting., .......
Check between all terminal options with the probes of the ohm meter until you get the highest reading. ....
The terminal your not on is the COMMON terminal. Record it.

Then, with one probe put it on the common terminal, and check from common to one, and then the other.
the terminal that gives you the highest reading is the start terminal, and then the other is obviously the run terminal.

How to wire in new hard start


It's very simple to install a 3N1 Supco Hard Start Relay, Some refrigerators have a run capacitor located on compressor or mounted nearby. It will be important that you use the run capacitor in with the 3N1 Hard Start. Here is a Photo of the=> URCO810_3_N_1
1_31_2013_3_26_55_pm.jpg
The instructions come with the 3N1 Hard Start Relay. Can you please post the model number of your refrigerator here so I can look up a wiring diagram? Look around the fresh food section door frame for your model number. I do need to know so we can get the right run capacitor in the 3N1 hard start circuit, Thanks Sea Breeze

Refrigerator and freezer not working


you need to replace the relay but you could also simply get what is called a 3 in one hard start, not only are these better then the relay but will be better for your fridge, this 3 in one unit will replace all 3 electrical parts needd to start the compressor, the installation is so easy even a cave man could do it, i promise,. here is a link http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hard-Start-Kit-Relay-Capacitor-Overload-ERP410-RCO410-HS410-WRX-4-/140821632778?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20c99f970ai hope this helps.

Buzzing noise lasting 5-10 sec, occurs every 4 min. Seems to be coming from relay attached to freon tub


Hi, That would be the relay/overload you hear. The "buzzing" is the start device of the compressor, and the "clicking" is the overload/cut-out protector. It may just be a faulty relay/ start device, or it may be effect of a locked rotor in the compressor. You can try to replace the start device and see if that yields any remedy, ( I recommend and use the RCO410 also known as a HS410 3 in1 hard start kit) if it doesn't start it...call a tech, it may need a compressor and some units have a five-ten year warranty on the compressor, check your owners manual under "warranties". Hopefully that's a start for you. Good luck

I have replaced a compressor in a maytag fridge model MBB2256GES and i have a blue wire and a white wire i know they go to the compressor and ther are three pins on the compressor what goes where


The start component assembly goes to the three pins. You have to have this assembly. Always shipped with a new compressor.

The 2 wires go the start kit, after it's installed onto the compressor. Doesn't matter how you use the blue and white wires. Just connect them to the relay start kit, where the old ones were.

Amana fridge/freezer compressor problem


Unplug unit.

It's not possible to tell which without replacing the starting system. Hard start kit would be fine. RCO410 is common. If it starts the unit the next check would be an ampmeter clamped onto one of the power leads. The ampmeter for refrigerators of that age may read around 2-5 amps when running. If it's much higher than 5 Amps after it's running be prepared to replace the compressor. Maybe it won't quit today...but it won't last with high amperage. If it doesn't start with this kit you need compressor.

Not cooling


The clicking you are hearing is your overload on your start system sounds like your compresser start ststem is out..or your compresser is locked up the only way to tell is to ohm out the compresser idf you dont have a meter you can install a start kit like a Supco Pro41 or a RCO410 or a factory replacement and see if it starts up the compresser.. Have you cleaned the condenser at all ??? although this will not fix the compresser it can be a cause of overheating..The part Number you need is a 2188831 for the factory replacemenet ($22.56)the supco parts part number SU RCO410 ($15.00) the Pro41 is part #
SU PRO41 ($17.97) you can get them at your local parts house they are all easy to change or if you dont have a parts house close you can oder it on the web at www.apdepot.com Hope this fixes ya
