richappy is a name known to all

I have stated before on this site,NEVER use a 3n1 hard start kit on a modern R134A compressor. The first power surge will cause the kit to send excessive current to the compressor through the adaptive defrost board AP4909015 probably blowing out both items.
You will probably find the compressor start winding is blown open along with the adaptive defrost board.
This evidence and warning has been published for many years, apparently your service person is just not informed of this, so I would try to get your money back.
