This is a follow up from the following thread:
Anyway, I got the Supco RC 0410 ($24) and I have some questions...
The 3-in-1 has three wires (white, black and red) that connect to the
compressor. No problem there. The question I have is how to hook up
the 2 black "power wires".
Here is my problem:
the plug side of the square comes a black wire that goes to the cap.
(A white wire goes from the cap to what I think is the realy (see
below)). From the fridge side of the square there is 5 wires. A
brown, black and orange that go foward past the coils toward the front
of the fridge. There is also a orange wire that goes to the guardette
and a black wire that goes to what I think is the relay. (What I think
is the relay has a copper coil on it and a red sticker and has 3 clips
that attach to the compressor). (After the guardette there is an
orange wire that goes to the fan and then a grey wire that comes off
How do I hook up the 2 wires from the SUPCO 3-in-1 to the power cord?
Also, the orange wire between the square part and the guardette is
dried out and cracked. Also, the black wire between the square part
and what I think is the relay is also cracked.
I appreciate any help you all can supply.
I can't visualize your setup. But typically, there are two wires that
go to a compressor. Power, and neutral. Plus a ground. Sometimes the
fan under the fridge wires to the compressor, also. Most likely you
have a power and neutral wire, and then two wires to the fan.
Power wire goes to one of the fan wires, and one of the supco black
Neutral wire goes to one of the fan wires, and one of the supco black

Here is the link to the diagram I drew:
So, I need to know how to hook up the hard start and also how to
replace the broken wires. (Do I need to replace the square part on the
cord that all the wires splice out of?
Actually I did get the link to work again.

I am guessing I have to hook the SUPCO up to the black wire that goes
to the cap and to the black wire that goes to the relay, and then
replace the broken wires. Not sure how to do that though, since they
come out of the square part on the power cord. Those broken wires are
