I claimed a small rotary compressor off ebay, never been installed. Problem is, I did not get any of the starting gear with it and the manufacturer's site is not helpful.
The compressor is:
Model 39R131F R-22
115V 60Hz single phase
5240 BTU , 620W input power
A run capacitor is specified, but no starting gear information. Can I just use one of those hard start kits with it? Do these type of compressors typically use a potential relay and start capacitor, PTC, or something else?
Also, when determining HP size of the motor to aid in determining a proper starter kit, is that just the input power, as in 620W/735 = ~ .84 hp?
Thanks in advance.
