The one I was showing you also works for a compressor with a run capacitor. The one you have listed does not. If you have no run capacitor that will work fine. If you do have a run capacitor that could work but you will still have to wire in the run capacitor and there will not be any instructions available. The number I gave you is just much easier to use. It should be available at your local repair supply shop.

Not sure. I haven't seen the capacitor or model number so I really can't say for sure but I think you ordered the wrong one. It can work though. I'll try and explain. When you get the part. Let me see a picture of that capacitor to be sure

Ok I looked up the info on your frig. It has a run capacitor so it has to be hooked up to this new start kit you are going to put on there. Hook the 3in1 up as per instructions but you also have to cut the red and white wires and splice the capacitor into those connections. If you don't add the run capacitor your compressor will fail shortly thereafter

Is this what your meaning about splicing in the capacitor? Picture showing wires would run with splice. If so would it matter which leg to red are white? If so would Fluke meter indicate polarity reversed as negative across poles?
