If your talking about a Hard Start Capacitor I use a Supco spp6.


The soft starter he's looking for slowly brings it up to speed rather than "throwing it across the line" with the corresponding dip in voltage we all notice when the lights dim.

My 15,000 AC runs well on my Honda 2000 generator ( which is 6 yrs.old )since I installed the Microaire Easy Start. Don't remember AC mfg or model but it came on Montana HC 2014.

Westinghouse 2500 watt, tripped the breaker and would not run my 15k A/C

Added MicroAire EZ-Start, and it runs it fine.

Make sure you order the installation kit, I failed to and it make it a bit more time consuming to install

The Micro-air Easy Start reduces the A/C unit compressor LRA (locked rotor amperage) that draws a huge amount of power on start-up that smaller generators cannot produce.

Once the A/C unit is running, the power draw greatly decreases.

A quick Youtube video explains this-

Looks like the Micro-air Easy Start is what I am looking for.

Make sure you order the installation kit with it.
