Hello.Sorry you are having problems. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help.Please wait to leave rating until we are finished.The capacitor setting could have an effect. These are supposed to always be within 5% + or -. As for prices, they seem a bit high. I would get another opionion and estimate before spending that much money. As for the hard start kit, they should be willing to attempt this first and if it does not work, not charge you. This is a part that can be re used. I once had a lady call me and told me her AC guy had installed a hard start and it did not work. He removed the hard start and through it in back of his truck, still charging her for it. I am sure after he left her house he put the hard start back in his truck inventory as like I stated, these are re usable.Hope this helps. My suggestion is to get another opinion and estimate
Hi Tim,What do you mean by "The capacitor setting could have an effect."? That the 45/5 vs 40/5 could cause a premature wear?Also, a buddy of mine works in HVAC a ways away from me and suggested I try a Hard Start. I just got the Supco MPR5 in today. Should I try adding it on (to the R and H)? if so, should I keep the Turbo 200 at 45/5 or change it to 40/5 first?
Thank you for your help and confirmation. With the Turbo jumped at 25 + 20 its reading 42.64uf.
I assume that's ok?
I kept the Turbo at that current setting and added the hard start. The compressor kicked right off!
Yes that will be close enough. Did you install the hard start?I see you did. This should hopefully fix you up/.
Yes, I kept the Turbo at that current setting and added the hard start. The compressor kicked right off!
Thank you again Tim!
