Well, got to local hardware store, pick up 12/3 soow/soo wire, new plug, LOTS of electrical tape (lol one rollwould work 3M type 88 is best), 3 12ga wire nuts. splice in the wire( white-white, black-black, green-green) near the motor. Cover the spliced area with enough tape to well cover the splice area; more than just one layer of tape (do not be afraid to pull on tape; it holds better when tape is pulled and stretched). Connect the plug; white to silver, black to gold/brass, green to grounding lug/green. place a slight loop (4-6" dia) with spiced area opposite of where cable passes its self. either tape and/or zip-tie so no strain is placed on the splice. At this point compressor should be working.

the start capacitor on the motor body is weak,the motor needs this component to over come the air pressure when cycling to re-build the low air pressure,change both the start and run capacitors when doing the start because the other run capacitor is just as old and it will soon fail

How hard is it to rewire a 2006 stratliner? A rat chewed up some of the wires in the bike and it wont start.


slice open the wiring loom where the rat chewed them and rejoin them with a soldering iron, use heat shrink over each wire to insulate, the wires are all color coded, so should be an easy fix.

No power


i think you have a bad phase or you are not getting the correct volts going in try switching the hot wires red to black and black to red and check each set of windings for continuity

I HAD TO REPLACE THE CAPACITOR ON MT INTERTHERM A/C UNIT


Ok you have to trace the wires on down to what terminals they go to on the fan and especially the compressor. Usually you cant go by colors but always by the names on terminals and the like.

The capacitor has labels like (C or Com) (Fan or F) and (Comp or Herm). The compressor has terminals like (Com or C) (S or start) and (R or Run)

Write all the colors down on the compressor and the terminals that correspond to the colors.

Then do the same for what you can trace to the fan motor (usually there are only 1 or 2 going to the fan motor) If it just goes into the fan motor write down all the colors that go from the capacitor to the fan motor. The other wires from your description haven't been chewed or removed correct? If this answer is other than correct we have another step to perform.

Builds pressure, will not cycle back on and leaks fluid


Your compressor is most likely made by Campbell Hausfeld. The oily substance could be leaking from the capacitor on the motor. Remove the cover and examine the capacitor for failure. There is a value printed on the cap. (uf) The cap must measure to within 95% of printed value. A failing capacitor will cause the hum that you are experiencing.
