The BEST thing to happen to hard-start kits since we made them universal!

The NEW CPT® Fuse Wire on AmRad’s universal hard-start kits protects the compressor from damage within 3 seconds of a relay failure!

When the potential relay on a hard-start kit fails with the contact stuck in a closed position, the motor-start capacitor remains in the circuit. This makes the AC compressor run with too much capacitance, causing damage and even potential failure.

The CPT® Fuse Wire prevents this damage. When the relay becomes stuck in the close position, the fuse inside the wire disconnects within 3 seconds, cutting the motor-start capacitor off from the AC system. No damage, no mess, easy replacement.

Only available on AmRad’s American made, 2-wire, universal hard-start kits (TES5 and TES5EXT).
