Using a 3-in-1 is last ditch only because it'll void your warranty on the compressor (if you still have one, I think it's 5 years on yours but TTH would know better). Generally, if a compressor won't run reliably on the OEM start device, it's on it's way out. Your current measurements seem to confirm this. So only do a 3-in-1 if a) you know the compressor is out of warranty and b) you accept the fact that you're living on borrowed time and start shopping for a new fridge.
