Compressor Saver Hard Start Capacitor Model CSR U2
The 5-2-1 Compressor Saver Starting up is the hardest time in the life of any type of electrical equipment. Ever notice that light bulbs almost always burn out when you first turn them on and not while they are on? This is due to the huge current that rushes in when a switch is thrown and power is first applied. Your air conditioner uses anywhere from 5 to 10 times more power on start-up than it does while running. With this burst of power comes a surge of heat that accompanies the electrical current. This heat damages the compressor, the terminals, the windings and run capacitor - all vital components of your air conditioner. The 5-2-1 Compressor Saver® protects these components by significantly reducing the amount of time it takes for your compressor to start - in some cases up to 50%. This means your air conditioner and compressor will bear ½ the stress, strain and heat each and every time it starts. Considering that your air conditioner may start up more than 6,000 times in a single cooling season, the positive impact that the 5-2-1 Compressor Saver® has on your air conditioner is significant. Before you replace your air conditioner, try adding a 5-2-1 Compressor Saver®. The 5-2-1 Compressor Saver® might save you from having to outlay thousands of dollars to buy a new air conditioner or compressor. At a fraction of the cost, installing the 5-2-1 Compressor Saver® is a wise investment

It worksNov 16, 2011
This worked as needed and got another season out of my dying condenser unit. My compressor was on it's last leg and it needed a little extra boost to get started. It got us through the season. With the addition of this, I had no more problems and the air ran great. I can't say how long the compressor would have lasted since I replaced it prior to failing completely.
Hopefully I never need to buy another one of these, but if I do, I'd do this again.

5-2-1 compressor saverAug 03, 2010
I hired an HVAC guy to come over and inspect the condenser and evap coils. He said I needed a hard start kit, he hooked it up and it did start easier and was quieter however it would have cost me 250.00 and I said take it off. So I purchased one from here and hooked it up myself following the easy directions. Be advised you must take other precautions when installing this product. I had to drill my own holes as the existing ones wouldn't work. It works great. I am not an HVAC person, but I have a very good knowledge of power and how to discharge it properly.

fixed a compressor no start... for nowJul 01, 2012
reality is that this product will
- extend compressor motor life by reducing inflow current and heat
- reduce voltage variation at startup in your house
- potentially start a hard to start compressor if it's just slightly off nominal... this is my case... my compressor wouldn't start, got one of these, put it on, started right up... total time expended about 15 minutes
it's important to note that this is actually a smart preventative thing, not a hail mary to keep your compressor running ... I took a shot and got lucky so maybe I replace my compressor next year instead of this year....
if you are gonna get one, get it now...
for sceptics, this capacitor design is frequently used in modern premium compressor designs so it's a fully endorsed design and you can install it with confidence
