Question about Air Conditioners
I have a home ducted system, totally unbranded and one of the three AC capacitors connected to the starter input to the compressor failed - ie: much somke, case cracked and contents spewed out like a volcano.
Obviously the capacitor will require replacing, but is it likely that the capacitor failed due to some other problem, say in the compressor or the soft start circuit ?
If the capacitor you are talking about is part of the start circuit, a failed current sensing relay could have caused the capacitor to remain in the circuit on start up. whenever i replace a start capacitor, I also replace the relay just in case.
