Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi I need to install a Supco 3 n 1 start capacitor and have a few questions. I have a Kenmore side by side fridge. Model # 106.53662300. My first question is How do I know if the rco810 is right for this fridge and not the rco410. I'm not sure how to tell what the HP of the compressor is (it doesn't say on it). Second, the rco810 comes with 5 wires. I understand the 1st 3 color coded ones go to start, run and common terminals. But, what about the 2 line wires? Do I need to connect them to anything? I found 3 other wires on the back of the unit - see pictures at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/35861634@N06/ Two of them are white and connected and one is red. I included photos of what they connect to. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
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
