Homeowners please read the charter for alt.hvac and sci.engr.heat-vent-ac
at:
http://home.att.net/~alt.hvac/default.htm
http://home.att.net/~alt.hvac/netiquet.htm
http://home.att.net/~alt.hvac/charter.htm
It states: The HVAC groups are not intended to supplement the homeowner groups such as
misc.consumer.house and alt.home.repair
So please go there and post your question or call your local heating/ air conditioning contractor to service your equipment.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a qualified heating contractor should inspect the home heating system annually. Checks should be made of the furnace or boiler, and its electrical and mechanical components, thermostat controls and automatic safety switches.

Lynn, If you're going to drop $650 ( a fairly high price for a "labor only" compressor replacement IMO) into a compressor swap on a unit over 4 years old, you might consider replacing the entire outdoor HP. New unit, new 5-year warranty, new everything. Get prices and consider the -next- compressor replacement will be on your dime; over $1K. Most importantly, have somebody qualified try and figure out what caused the failure in the first place. Dirty indoor coils, poor maintenance, low air volume are a heatpumps worst enemy. Good luck with it.

thanks. it is done deal and fixed. most of the replies I had were "flat rate of >= $750"...
The main big old capacitor in there was bad and leaking a lot.. speculation was that its going bad eventually took the compressor out...
whatever. it is changed and done.
