Peerless 3.5 single phase compressor with 2 capacitors. require wiring diagram


one is a motor start. The other is a run cap. The run cap will be low value. 4-7uf. the start will be higher. 30-50uf maybe? With pics of the caps and wiring I can help.

Hard Start Capacitor
A hard start capacitor, its only purpose is to add additional starting torque when the compressor is starting and for just a few milliseconds.
It is wired thru a normally closed set of points in a potential relay and in parallel with the run capacitor, when the compressor is starting the start capacitor is in the circuit adding additional starting torque to the compressor, when the compressor reaches a certain speed it generates enough back EMF (voltage) to energize the potential relay coil and open the normally closed set of points and take the start capacitor out of the circuit and then will stay open, keeping the start capacitor out of the circuit as long as the compressor is running. The hard start capacitor is only in the circuit or working for a few milliseconds, it’s not doing anything once the compressor s back EMF opens the potential relay coil.
These potential relays have different cut in and cut out voltages, so the same relay won’t work with any compressor and may actually damage the compressor or shorten its life if you don't use the right potential relay. The compressor manufacturer and the local parts store list the correct capacitor start relay and start capacitor for every compressor and now they are putting the information on the compressor on the nameplate with the model and serial number.
As a rule of thumb you can use a capacitor or start capacitor within 10% of its rating if you can’t get the correct one.

Why am I not getting power to ac capacitor?


A thermostat or a relay activated by the thermostat turns power on to the capacitor for the compressor.

New house, cooler bought 2006. doesn't seem to run, but light is on


If the compressor is not running you will need to replace the "start relay" and the "run capacitor" on the compressor.
Here is the start relay to order.
Here is the capacitor to order.
Here is a diagram to show you the part locations.
The start relay is number 89 on the diagram and the capacitor is number 96.

The parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Trying to replace the start relay on my Roper refrigerator.


depending on the model and the part # of the ptc overload relay will tell you how to wire it back as was,on some ptc O/L's there are spaces on the component where you just plug it on piggyback to this ptc,if not then all you do is wire the capacitor in parallel to the 2 power pins on the compressor,the cap doesn't actually start or run the units compressor,its there to help suppress the arcs on the relay when it starts,the compressor will operate without this capacitor

Not getting cold, freezer stopped working


Although this could be the compressor, let's hope not. If the compressor is not kicking on it could be the start relay or start capacitor. Usually if it is the relay you will hear a clicking noise, but not always. If you go to www.SearsPartsDirect.com and plug in the model number (off your EQUIPMENT ID TAG) and then select model number search. You will bring up diagrams for your unit. Find the compressor on those diagrams, and the start relay and capacitor will be right next to it.

Every thing runs but the compressor wont fire i think its the compressor start up capacitor how do i test the capacitor


first discharge the capacitor for safetys sake,then touch the meter leads of a multi-meter set to RX100 to the caps leads if the needle stays on 0 the cap is shorted(but that would trip the wall breaker),if it doesnt move at all its open,if it goes to 0 and slowly climbs back towards infinity its good,i believe you will find the ptc overload relay on the compressor is defective,its in combination with the capacitor,the cap is only on there to take the power spikes off the relay contacts during start-up,the ptc overload relay is what aids in compressor start-up/run/and overload protection if compressor wont fire,change them both and it will run

Need the wiring diagram for capacitors on a IR model 2475N7.5


Hi my name is Luke and I bought a Ingersoll-Rand 7.5 compressor and won’t start. I noticed it has a wire not connected on the capacitors it’s a blue wire that reads t5 v3 there’s a capacitor with open prong before two start caps and another capacitor after the two start caps , at least that’s what it reads on caps unless they have been wired wrong , being that I would think the start up caps should be wired first from powers supply box , want to know where it went Before I went trying to change capacitors and there’s 5 here’s a pic

P291-3554RS dual cap is the Carrier part that is called for.


Are you talking about a start capacitor or a run capacitor?
Usually a dual capacitor is a metal can type capacitor with 3 terminals.
C - which is run for compressor and fan.
Herm - is start for the compressor.
Fan - is start for fan.
A start capacitor is a black plastic capacitor
It is in series in the run wire to the potential relay, one side goes to run on the run capacitor and the other side goes to #1 on start or potential relay.
