Usually you can look on the side of the capacitor and it will have a sticker saying what the microfarads and voltage are but if it doesn't then depending on what capacitor you are looking for, if you get the model number of the part (Fan-Blower- Compressor) and call any parts store,dealer or even get online and go to the manufacturers website and contact them and they can give you that information.

What size capacitor in a Carrier Heat Pump 38yh036300


This is a three ton heatpump must likely it is a 35/5uf capacitor. But if you can read compressor tag it will tell you size it requires and also fan label will do some for it.you will need to ask for a dual capacitor from supply house make sure you pay close attention to hoe wires hook up so you can wire in new on before removing wires make sure you have high voltage turned off to unit.take pic with phone this will help when you rewire

Air compressor on Heil air conditioner is humming but not kicking in


Capacitor Failure Symptoms are sometime harder to identify without the right tools and expertise. Capacitors can be found in several different sizes and shapes. There may be one or multiple capacitors included in your ac with regards to the design. While the most popular capacitors are the types found on circuit boards, the ones most associated with air conditioning will be the bigger capacitors that assist start and run your motors. There are several motors present in an conditioner and heater systems:
  1. Compressor Motor Run Capacitor: Here is the most popular capacitor that fails. Most of the time these are duel capacitors, which means that there are 2 capacitors built into one. A duel capacitor will have three terminals on the top where a single capacitor will simply have two terminals on top.
  2. Outside Fan Motor Run Capacitor: That is the smaller capacitor found with or part of the Compressor Motor Capacitor. It helps start and run the outside fan that blows air through the outside coils.
  3. Indoor Blower Motor Run Capacitor: Similar to the outdoor fan motor capacitor, it is a small, single (two terminals) capacitor that will help start and run the indoor blower motor.
  4. Start Capacitor: Some models include an auxiliary start capacitor that helps jump start the motors. Most are found on the compressor. These are less common.

You may need to get that checked out.

I have a heat pump model ARUF 042-00A-1A. There is only air blowing but no heat comming out. What can we do? Thanks


Heat pumps are like a refrigerator. Check the "pump" part is working properly. and is cooling one side, heating the other.

If not - maybe run out of gas (needing technical repair and refill) - or a motor fault.

Central air Goodman ck30-1a blowing fuses?


I don't know what you use to heat your house, (heat pump, gas, oil) but if it is not a heat pump, i.e.. you don't use the outdoor unit to produce both heat and cooling, then the first place to look is at the compressor in the condensing unit (outdoor unit). If you have a bad capacitor, it will cause the compressor to pull locked rotor amperage (LRA) for an extended period of time and will cause the fuse to trip (usually within 2 or 3 seconds) The other possibility would be that something got into the wiring and have created a short. I have seen more insect and rodent damage to wires then you can imagine, so this is also a high possibility. Hope this helps

Carrier AC fan not working right


it sounds like the capacitor is shot there is usually a duel capacitor one side is for the compressor and the other side is for the condensor fan motor if it is bad the motor will over heat and turn off on internal overload

No heat


Your compressor sounds like isn't working? And the problem is if we are lucky you just lost the capacitor. turn off the breaker to the ac/heat pump unit. Open the electrical panel on condenser locate the capacitor if it is swelled up like puffed up can then for sure it is bad. It has two sides to the capacitor one for the fan and one for the compressor. If you have a meter check it in ohms. If you don't have a meter take the capacitor to a heating and air conditioning parts house and get a new one just like the one you have very important to get right size. let me know how it turns out. ken

Ruud heat pump capacitor size


A hard start or turbo 2000 will not work if the run capacitor is bad. You will need to contact a ruud supply house or dealer with model and serial to find out the exact match. I have checked my sources and came up empty handed. You could try getting a 35/5 MFD at 440V or a 45/5 MFD at 440V as these are the most common capacitors used in Rheem and Ruud equipment. The key is that you will need to check your amp draws on both motors against the nameplate rating to make sure that you are not over-amping the motor. Also check the nameplates on both of the motors. Most condenser fan motors and some compressors list the capacitor size they require in a somewhat less than conspicious location on the label.
