Both are easy to install and come with instructions. I'll give you some easy to follow steps for both. I'll start with the overload. Remove the relay from the bottom two pins on the compressor. Leave the wire connected. Take the overload wire off the top (common) pin on the compressor and push the replacement overload on the common pin. Push the relay (with the wire still connected) back on the lower two pins. Take the wire off the old overload terminal and push it on the new overload wire terminal.
For the solid state relay/overload:
The solid state device has 5 wires, two black wires on one end and a black red, and white wire on the other end. Take the wire off the old overload and take the wire off the relay. Cut the ends off the wire and strip the wires back about 1/2". Connect the wires to the two black wires on one end of the solid state device with the wire nuts supplied. The pins on the compressor are in a triangle configuration. Push the black wire on the top pin (common). Push the white wire on the bottom left pin (start) and the red wire on the lower right pin.
Hey, I finally installed it but it’s not working…I hear the click when it starts and the compressor humming a bit bit no cooling…think I can switch the red and the white see if that makes a difference?
