Route Blue, Black and Yellow SoftStart wires into the electrical box. Route Brown and Red SoftStart wires to the top of the Compressor. Crimp Connectors onto all SoftStart wires as indicated in drawing.
Step 1. Follow White Compressor wire from Compressor to Run Capacitor COM terminal. Disconnect from COM terminal and connect it to Blue SoftStart wire.
Step 2. Connect Black SoftStart wire to the terminal that the White Compressor wire was on.
Step 3. Disconnect the Red Compressor wire. Connect Yellow SoftStart wire on terminal that the Red wire was on. Reconnect the Red Compressor wire onto the Piggyback connector of the Yellow SoftStart wire.
Step 4. IF you see a second Red wire next to the Red Compressor wire, disconnect it and seal end with electrical tape.
Step 5. Follow the Blue Compressor wire to the terminal block. Disconnect it from the terminal block and connect it to the Brown SoftStart wire. Seal connection with electrical tape.
Step 6. Connect Red SoftStart wire onto the terminal that the Blue Compressor wire was on. Connect Blue wire from 6-pin connector to Piggyback connector of Red SoftStart wire.
Secure all wires. Tape connections with electrical tape.
Turn Power and A/C Breaker on. Turn A/C to Auto Cool setting and set the thermostat to 55ºF.
Look at SoftStart LED lights. Green light should be “on”. Green light means the Compressor is running (there may be a full 3-minute delay before Green light comes on). IF there is no Green light after 4 minutes, call SoftStart Tech Support for assistance.
After establishing Green light operation, re-install all A/C covers.
Turn A/C on, set near to outdoor temperature and run for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, operate A/C normally.
