Photo above shows how easy this Hard Start Kit is to Install.
1.First Turn Off all Power to your equipment.
2. Connect either one of the two wires from the New Start Kit and plug one of them to each side of your existing Run Capacitort as shown
Now you will need to Look for the two correct terminals on your existing Run Capacitor to hook to your Start Kit's two wires. On the very Top of your Run Capacitor stamped in the metal next to the Terminals will be
marked "C" for Common and one Terminal will be marked "H" for Herm which stands for Hermetic Compressor and the third terminal will be
marked Fan, this Fan Terninal you will not use now you can hook either one of the two Blue start kit wires to the "H" and to the "C"
Terminals on your Run Capacitor its that easy.
Are Compressor Hard Start Devices Needed
• Compressor hard start devices are a luxury item for service technicians to use in rectifying a
myriad of compressor start problems. It is true that the majority of hard start device applications result from the marginal voltages
delivered by electric utilities during peak demand periods. As the predominant application is air conditioning, the hard start device can
serve as an insurance policy for compressor starts when voltages drop to 90% of rated line conditions. The ability to ensure a compressor
start under low voltage conditions can serve to minimize the number of "nuisance" service calls and allow a service contractor to focus
on true problem events.
OPERATION:When the compressor is called upon to start, the start capacitor provides a voltage boost to the start winding of the motor
(effectively simulating the phasor lead/lag of a three-phase motor) and causes the motor rotor to turn. At some point, when the
capacitor is released from the start winding, the motor continues to run. The use of compressor start devices results from a need to
ensure that a compressor (usually air conditioning) will start under voltage conditions that are less than ideal. As discussed, several
options exist in the market to address compressor start concerns. Start devices exist in many forms for specific applications.
