    First, get your post count up and apply for Pro status, so you can ask techncial questions in the closed Pro forums.

    Second, you mentioned a hard start kit. It that kit uses a PTC, it will not be able to assist the compressor until it has fully cooled off. A potential relay hard start will assist EVERY time. So, you need to find out if you have a good hard start kit there.


    Question: when the compressor fails to start, have you cut the power to the unit and ohmed out the windings? You could be going out on internal overload, so all you will get for resistance is OL.

    thanks for all the info guys had a weak start winding they replaced it with a scroll compressor still had 3 months on warranty. reto kit worked great and was covered also new scroll did not have heater so installed a belly band heater. had to cut reversing valve out made job much easier and quicker

    Had to cut out the reversing valve??!!
    RVs are a pain to change - 4 pipes as compared to two on a compressor. And RVs are much touchier to braze, especially when you have to lean over the top of the unit to do so.
    I'd much rather change a compressor than a reversing valve.
