Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Looking at that model breakdown, that compressor appears to be a variable speed that is not run on 120 VAC. There is a separate power board for the compressor, shown at the URL below. Since you hooked up a 120 VAC hard start kit, you have likely damaged the compressor. At this point, I believe you will need to call for professional service.
