If you use a 3-in-1, and the condenser fan gets blocked or fails, the compressor will cook to death. The factory part provides over-temperature protection, the 3-in-1 doesn't.

The 3-in-1 adds a start capacitor where one does not belong, and a 3-in-1 lacks a run capacitor which many compressors were designed to have .

Why not use a new factory part? Those 3-in-'s are not any cheaper, and they sure as hell aren't better quality. I find them bad all the time.
