Usually, an additional start capacitor is unnecessary with a properly operating compressor. They are sometimes added to compensate for low voltage or if the compressor won't start otherwise. Use caution in adding a start cap. If the compressor was not originally equipped and designed to operate with a start capacitor, the motor start winding will eventually burn out and ruin the compressor. This may be why the manufactuer says it is not recommended.
