Maytag Skybox compressor start problems
« on: July 22, 2013, 08:16:00 PM »
I have a Maytag Skybox that I dearly enjoy except it has been dead for a year or so. If plugged in it hums then clicks. Through researching I was told to try the ERP410 hardstarter and that almost worked but not so much. Someone else led me to a 4387535 replacement kit, which came with two pieces and a wire. I have not been able to find hook up instructions. The ERP410 connected to the three prongs on the back as seen in the pictures but I'm unsure of where these new pieces go. Sorry if I sound like a schmuck. Any help appreciated. I know it's probably dead and it's extremely depressing that Maytag gave up and walked away from it.  :cheers:

If it won't start with a hard start, it's not going to start with a simple relay.  The compressor is shot.
