Those are OK, but it seems like every time I've left one in place, it was a month to three months before I was replacing the pump.Originally posted by mardoman
I usually carry a Supco 3 in 1 hard start kit for small crap such as this. It comes with instructions.
Make sure compressor has cooled off for at least a couple of hours before you try it. If it starts & runs compressor you could leave it in place. If it does'nt start the compressor, you need to have an amp clamp to see what the current draw is compared to the LRA rating of the compressor.
Now, I have one of each size for getting myself home on time. But go back and put on the right components, providing I don't have them with me...
