Lightbulb Connecting a new revised starter relay
Model Number: MSD2957DEB   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hello all,

After tech removed the original starter relay he did not put the old one back ( long story I was'nt around but it was a bad one ). I now have the new version replacement and am at stand still as to the wiring hook up. I have seen the schematic but still unsure as to how to read it. I believe I also have a run capacitor on this unit which leaves me with 4 wires to connect to the starter relay with only 3 spades. I'm sure one of these wires must be ommitted and the others attached. From the harness the blue and orange wire also continue to the condenser fan. Then orange and white from the run capacitor.

Can anyone help?????
I took some pics to help.

Thanks,
gottado

Looking at the relay
Blue wire to the Common terminal (on top)
Double Orange wire goes to
Run (right side) the other half goes to terminal on capacitor.
That is why only three pins on PTC
White/Wire from Start (left side) goes to other capacitor terminal.
Blue/Orange to fan motor. Also to power supply.

What do you think about using one of those 3-N-1 "hard start" kits on an older unit?

Default More help needed connecting Starter relay

Still not sure as to hook up per Icehouse's post...sorry

Again there are four wires each with a female disconnect:

One Blue and one Orange from Harness coming down from ADC pairing off to the relay and continuing to condenser fan.

Also one White and one Orange coming from Run Capacitor

The new Overload/Relay has only 3 terminals. Do I double up the orange wires at relay?????

Instruction sheet for new relay kit is attached.

Used 3in1 many times. Keep one with a power cord to quick check compressors.

Nothing showed up. However the blue lead from ADC connects to the top (C) terminal and blue lead from condenser fan.
The orange lead from the ADC connects to the terminal on the left (R) and the orange lead from the capacitor doubles up on this terminal, as well as the orange lead from the condenser fan.
The white lead from the capacitor attaches to the terminal on the left (S)

Bozos have the pin configuration "upside down" So now blue is on bottom (C), orange is on right (R) White is on left (S).
All blue wires together, and all orange wires together.
