pjm, as much as you sound rather unpleasant, I have a feeling that
you actually may know a thing or two about troubleshooting HVAC
equipment. The key word here is "may".
Is there any chance at all that you could help us appreciate the
wisdom and knowledge of your profession, by actually sharing some of
it here, specifically what kinds of issues could cause observed
problems (intermittent breaker popping at startup).
I mean, both great experts as well as ignorant assholes could say
something like "dumbass, you need to talk to professionals". That's an
easy thing to say in all circumstances.
So... How can we know that you are a knowledgeable person in your
field? Can you share with us what is applicable to his case. I would
then be the first to acknowledge the depths of your expertise. I am
not kidding or posturing.
He already did, dumbfuck. PJM is extremely knowlegible about the proper use
of newsgroups, and specifically alt.hvac. You got good advice, now heed it
and take your hacking whining freakshow out of here.
As you will find out rapidly, there are a few folks here who are
impolite. They will self identify rapidly.
Using your logic, I went to my doctor and asked for the cheapest Rx I
could have. Figuring cause I was sick, I wanted to take the cheapest
pills. I'd try the cheaper pills, and work up to the more expensive
ones later. I'm up to about four dollars a bottle, and I'm still sick.
My neighbor had the same condition. He went into the doc and told him
the symptoms. The doc did an examination, wrote the pills that he
really needed, and he's just fine now. My neighbor says I may have
craneo rectal invertitis.
Actuallly, since you write and ask for advice on changing caps instead
of asking for help diagnosing, you may have CRI also. Incidentally,
take two asprin. And, when the asprin take effect, replace your

Hi I just joined the group so please forgive any unintended rudeness on
Oh and don't let my nickname be misinterpreted as my being any sort of
self-proclaimed electrical genius.....It is a spin on our breed of dogs
..Wire hair fox terriers.
My question is this: I am about to replace the dual capacitor on my
heat pump. I have a vague understanding that it contains a charge that
could be lethal or could otherwise knock me on my @ss. What should I
do/not do as I remove the capacitor.....I know to turn the power off to
the outside unit but beyond that welcome any and all honest advice.

Just so you know, this shitbag PJ only crawled in here a week or so ago,
this was / is a very useful group of NICE helpful folks.
Ignore fuckface and soon enough he will slink back to the homo room.....

I guess I've been lucky with my HVAC service co. Always prompt,always
reasonable, always done a good job and always gave me good advice.
Last winter, when my packaged heat pump compressor went down (after 16
years) they gave me a choice of replacement of the compressor or the
entire unit. They strongly advised I replace the unit, about three
times the cost of the compressor replacement. Being naturally frugal
(read cheap) I almost didn't take their advice, but they persisted
with the logical arguments. Boy am I glad I gave in. New higher SEER
unit much more quiet, effective, and power bills much lower. On the
seven months compared about 25% less KWH used per month, and the only
thing I changed in the house is the heat pump. I know that you have to
do a specific degree day comparison to be totally accurate, but I
don't think it would be much different.
