Saturday, my HVAC went belly-up.
The outside compressor would not start in the evening. Even the Fan
mode would not run by itself. Turn the entire unit off after checking
breaker, for ice and dripping from the condensate lines. I left it off
all night until early sunrise. Turned it on and the condenser came
on, the attic blower came on and in just a few minutes it failed
again. Won't start now.
Single story, 1800 sf home, Mojave Desert.. 110° F this week, HOT!
Would this be a start capacitor on the condenser/compressor?
I have a _Comfort Representative_
coming in a few hours. I may replace
the entire unit, compressor and furnace/air blower. Go from 10 SEER to
I'm comfortable replacing the capacitor and have the tools and will be
cautious, power off, etc. I don't have a VOM but can get one.
Does this act like a start capacitor? The unit is 13 years of age.
