    What color are your loose wires? Should be able to read herm fan and comm usually comm is the center one so tell me, is this on the outside unit?

    Are you sure it is a start cap and not a run cap? Run caps are all metal and start caps are almost always a black plastic type (used to be called "Bake-O-Lite") Also, a model and serial would help alot.

Need to switch 3 pronged plug for 4 pronged but not sure which color wire gets connected where.  Other wires were not color coded.

the red and black wires go to L1 and L2 terms doesnt matter which color on which term, white wire goes to"N" neutral terminal and green wire is safety ground that can be grounded to the steel housing of unit if your feed line comes directly from your main panel,not a sub panel,some localities will allow you to tie the white neutral and green grnd wire together in the unit chk your local ordinance first

On outside compressor for whole house AC: Critters ate wires. Have Blk & Red power in from breaker. 24vac switched from thermostat. 1 contactor with 24vac coil(original). 1 Capacitor w/ 3 terms...

There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the access panel. If you can't read it, check online for model wiring diagram. Don't guess, you may cause more expensive damage.

Bad phone connection

Usually static with loss of tone is a damaged line somewhere. The static can be caused by a loose connection as well as corroded lines. The loss of tone is usually caused by a dead short in the line. I just re wired my dads house for the same thing and eventually found where a rabbit had chewed through the insulation on a wire outside. He was having the exact same symptoms as you are. Hope this helps, and good luck
