I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

What the scroll guys are saying is that because a scroll starts basically unloaded, there should be no need for a start assist device. However, there are times when one is indeed indicated. The scroll motor is electrically identical to a recip motor. Only the method of compression is the difference when it comes to loading on startup.

There are a lot of informative videos on youtube, just search refrigeration compressors. I also like the 5-2-1.Challenge yourself, take the CM test --- Certificate Member since 2004 ---Join RSES ---the HVAC/R training authority ---www.rses.org

Thanks for all the feedback , help and advice. I really had not heard of those 3-2-1 kits and hope to find a parts place around me that handles them. I also hope there is enough room in these downsized control sections to install them.

There is a check valve in the discharge outlet of the compressor shell to prevent the system pressures from equalizing through the compressor, but there is no pressure difference across the actual pumping mechanism, so scroll compressor always start fully unloaded.
If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

so I meter the start caps when diagnosing and find some of them bad, I sometimes reuse the existing pot relay and just change the cap. Keep some in my van. Usually the relay is still good. Anyone object to this, I am talking about getting a compressor up and running when it just won't start.......meter goes up and then down on a start cap, I crimp a terminal end on the resistor and reconnect to the terminal when done. What would happen if the resistor was left unattached?
