Iíve wired up the capacitor to the points on the compressor according to the directions. Spliced up one of the capacitor wires with one black wire. And took one of the wires that is daisy chained to the overload to the other black wire. Plugged it in and nothing happens. It has power because the lights turn on but nothing else. Since there seems to be four wires to choose from for the overload is it the case of not having the right wire or doesnít it matter and the refrigerator is just dead?

Why was this installed, original fault? Wire to compressor as directed, put power directly to the relay, compressor should start, if so, disconnect and wire to fridge circuit.
