Re: installing hard start
Id suggest you take this set up back because there are several questions need answering before I can tell you what goes where. also you'll have to go and be femilure with the terminals on the run cap and the compressor also.
In lue of the setup you have, ASK for a relay capicator hard start ALL N 1. 2 wires and a wire diagram on the kit make it easy to install and its self contained It tjes up a little less room usually too.
Hope this helps PLEASE GRADE ME ACCORDINGLY and GOOD LUCK.

I would attach the black wire to the black & yellow, white to white, red to blue & brown. The green wire is your ground wire and needs to be attached to the cabinet. On the connection where your white wire is located see if there is a copper strap that goes from the terminal block to the cabinet. If there is, you will need to remove that strap and attach the green wire to where the strap was attached to the cabinet. Hope this helps!
There should be 3 terminals on the capacitor marked "C" "F" and "H". A wire from the high voltage contactor goes to the "C". Another wire from "C" goes to the compressor. These wires are usually red. The "F" terminal has a wire going to the fan,usually a brown wire. The "H" has a wire going to the compressor,usually yellow. There should be a wiring diagram on the control box cover identifying the terminals,colors and number of wires.
What you need to do is take the plate off at the switch on the wall. There shoulld be black wires and white wires. Attach a resistant tester to the white wires, and connect a long wire to the other probe of the tester. then touch the long wire to one of the black wires at the ceiling. If you are lucky, you might get the right black one on the first try. If not, touch the other black one, and that should be the white wire. Have the electric off to test this. When you find which is the white, or common, read the instruction manual and see which of the brown or greenyellow is designated white. I think these colored wires are at the bottom where the lights connect. At the top of the fan should be a white, blue, black and green wire. The Black wire from the ceiling will attach to the hot black and blue for the lights of the fan. The black wire which you discover to be actually white from the switch should be connectied to the white wire of the fan at the top. The red wire sometimes is used to connect to the blue wire so that you have a switch at the wall for the light and one for the fan. That is an old way of wiring fans. Joe
2 brown wires go to a split capacitor if you have a dual cap which has three terminals marked comp fan com if u have this type of capacitor then the brown wire goes to fan and the brown and white gets capped with a wire nut. whenever replacing a fan motor you should also replace the cap or at least check the capacitance to see if it is still good. you have to check it with a meter that test microfarad.you can get a permanent split capacitor and mount it in there then u use the brown on one side and the brown and white on the other side it only has 2 terminals.
