Hard Start Kit for American Standard

I have an American Standard Heritage 11 Heat Pump that needs a hard start kit. Wiring diagram left inside electrical compartment says the unit use a Trane BAYKSKT257. Can anyone identify a aftermarket kit that could be brought on the Internet or from supply house like Grainger.

That's for any help or advice.

The 2 main components of this kit are:
CAPACITOR; START, 135 MFD, 330V, ROUND, W/ RESISTOR
RELAY; START, SPST, 35A COIL: 239V PICK UP, 135V DROP OUT

Take that info to an HVAC supply house and they can fix you up. Or call Grainger.

Darn, forgot to put that info in!

You could use a SPP6 or SPP7E

Here is the catalog. Look on page 3.

Hope you got room in your unit for this!

I know when I ordered my hard start kit, it was a box that mounted on the side of the unit.

Welcome to this old thread papher51. We finished it 5 monthes ago and you are late.

The Spp7E is closest to the trane kit. They are different because of the compressor HP range they will work with.

I spoke to a guy at Supco and he said to use a SK3W3 or a 3W1 which is similar except it has a bracket for easy install.
