 O0 Try "Rocking" the compressor. To do this, switch the wires to the RUN and START terminals on the compressor and rapidly turn the disconnect on then off.
This was available with the "Hermetic Analyzer" ( a built in rocker switch).

Couldn't this be done at the control panel by switching the S/R wires at the cap?

Good point to address. As far as I was taught at Carrier "At the Compressor".
