    Pipe in a 1/4" N. O. solenoid valve

    Connecting discharge to suction. Power the solenoid coil parallel with the coil of the compressor contactor but through a two second time delay relay.

    That would give you full unloaded compressor start up.

    And if the timer goes out, it gives you a good reason to get a new system.

    Make the bypass line a big loop

    And put a thermostat on it near the suction connection. If it gets over the set-point it could either trip an alarm circuit to your alarm company or shut the unit down.

    Don't be silly - we're saving the compressor here!
