When it gets to be 90 degrees that's when you will pull the FLA of 13.1, when it 60 degrees without putting a amp probe on it, I would think that you would be in the neighborhood of 11 plus only. Your amps will go up the hotter it gets but will not go over the 13.1 on the name plate. Make sure you alawys give the compressor time to equalize between the high and low pressure before restarting, if not then you will pull even higher amps or more then likely go into LRA. A couple of mins should do that.

Ok will do, how Long is a safe amount of time to set the delay as far as causing the condenser or evap temps to get out of wack? Naturally the shortest needed but do you see any issues with 5 to 10 seconds? Thank in advance.

Mine was set between 10 and 15
I'd try to stay close to 10 seconds.

Thanks, I'm set somewhere around 10 seconds now so I'll leave well enough alone. I' going to install the hard start today.

Sorry to revive this older thread but it has a lot of good info and I have one question about adding the fan delay. I replaced my factory Coleman analog thermostat with a digital Honeywell and I'm only using the Hi Fan speed (I didn't install a Hi/Low toggle at this point). Is there any reason I can't install the fan delay on the Hi speed fan line rather than the Low speed fan line?

BTW, Too Tall, thanks for posting your videos on Youtube. They're very helpful.

Thank you the high would work just as well it will just draw a little more starting amps.
