Failed capacitor on clarke SE 14 compessor


On electric motors with two capacitors, one is a start capacitor, the other is a run capacitor. Start capicitors have plastic cases and are rated from 200mf to 400mf and higher depending on the size of the motor. Run capacitors are in the 20mf to 40mf range and usually have metal cases. If you have an electric motor service center in the area they can recommend what size you should use for the size (HP) motor you have.

I have a 6 yr old lennox merit 10acc system and the compressor doesn't seem to be running as there is no cold air and line out of compressor is not cold/sweating like my 2nd (good) unit.


you cant check capacitor with power on it nor using volt setting.need micro ferred setting on meter and check with power off and wires removed. leads go as follow for fan one lead on "C" and one on fan. For compressor one lead on Common and one on HERM. Also be sure voltage on capacitor is correct 360V or 440V. 440V will work for either. Also double check micro ferred requierment on motor and compressor. If its been replaced before may have been replaced with incorrect size. It happens.

I have a Maytag window unit and i am trying to find out how many btu is has. right now it is in a small room and i want to know if it will work in a bigger size room. MODEL M6Q1OF2A SERIAL CR 264327...


that is a 10000 btu unit and a good rule of thumb to go by when 'sizing' a unit is 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft of cooling space (if the place is well insulated) or 400 sq ft (if not well insulated).
So, you have a 10000 btu unit which is 5/6th of 12000 btu - so - can reasonably expect that unit to cool approximately 500 sq feet.
In other words the room it's in now could be only - say - 300 sq feet (and well insulated) - in which case the AC unit is cooling it - well.
However, if you try to cool a 800 sq ft room - it will not work as well.
Hope this has helped.

How many tons is my unit?


divide your btu rating by 12000. (1 ton = 12000 btu)
For example - a 24,000 BTU Air Conditioner is a 2 ton unit. 24000 divided by 12000 = 2
A 18000 btu air condtioner is a 1 1/2 ton unit 18000 divided by 12000 = 1 1/2
you can find out your btu rating by looking on the tag on your unit.

The unit is not cooling the room. It is only comforting when you are in direct line of it.


you need to find out the size of the unit.
Rule of thumb - for every 600 sq ft of cooling area (in a well insulated house) you will need 1 ton of air conditioning. 1 ton = 12000 btu.
So, if your cooling area is 600 sq ft you would need an AC which was rated at 12000 btu, assuming your house is well insulated.
If it is not insulated well - you might need a bigger unit, i.e. 15000 btu.

Compresser is shorted out across the fields. I want to comfirm the compresser size before I replace it.


Hi,
You need a niminal 3 ton compressor...the "36" in the model number gives you the 3 ton rating...36000 BTU @ 12000 BTU/ton = 3 ton...
So you need a 3 ton 240 volt single phase compressor...

Your compressor may be going bad. Check and make sure you have a proper sized breaker/fuses for the unit. Check and see that the capacitor is big enough to start the compressor and is not blown. I think those take a 45-5 cap. If all else fails, get a hard start kit from an HVAC distributor and install it as per the instructions. It may help delay the inevitable if the compressor is going.

Hi i have a Maytag 12000 btu Window ac unit that


I had a similar problem with my AC last week. These newer capacitors no longer have PCBs in them. The stuff they use now just ain't as good. As a result their are more capacitor failures tan ever. I would check that. If the cap looks swolen its probably bad.6f0f1c5.jpg52ae98e.jpgYou should also try and lubricate the motor. Use HVAC oil 106f87c.jpg$2 at Ace hardware store.
You gonna have to slide out the unit a little to get to the motor. Have rags ready.
