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)

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

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.

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.
