I have a hard start kit and installed to see if that was problem. It uses the original run capacitor not a start capacitor. I have wired it like it shows but someone said it needs to be wired different if foreign
made. Its says made in Brasil.

Update I unplugged  the original run capacitor that the hard start kit  showed wired in and it took off working. I will wait and see if it quits when warmed up.

So far it hasent missed a beat. My temp gauge only goes to zero but its pegged there in the freezer. The compressor hasent stalled since I removed the capacitor on the 3 and 1 kit. No fan assit. If it lastes another day I will order  part#5304491941 and install that. Also the compresser seems to be cooler now.
