Step 2) Connect the Black Softstart wire on the terminal the White wire was on
Step 3) Connect the Yellow Softstart wire on a terminal next to the Red Softstart wire on the “Herm” Terminals of the Run Capacitor.
Step 4) IF You see a 2nd Red wire next to the Red compressor wire disconnect it and tape end.
Step 5) Remove Compressor Cap, Disconnect Black compressor wire , Connect to Red Softstart wire. Tape connection.
Step 6) Temporarily insert a male in the Brown Softstart female, Bend as shown, Remove male and route Brown Softstart wire around cap post
