Are the wires going to capacitor correct. You have two sides to the capacitor one side is compressor or herm as stated on top the fan. should have one wire only on fan side then two wires to the common side and one wire to herm side. trace out the wires I'm sure it's electrical and make sure you can see that it does in fact have a dual capacitor. Turn off all electrical supply before even touching this as you are around some big voltage. I do this everyday and I won't even get close unless I pull the safety disconnect on the side of the house. Get back to me and can help further. Ken

see page 2 here...the drawing section with H (hermetic compressor) F (fan) and C (common. -- http://www.docs.hvacpartners.com/idc/groups/public/documents/techlit/38en-1w.pdf

On top of the capacitor you will find the terminals marked. One will say C, or Com. The others will be marked fan and herm. There will be a hot wire going to C. Usually this comes of the top of the contactor and is red. Find the wire that runs to the compressor. It will likely be yellow. This will hook to the Herm. Next find the fan wire (probably brown) it will hook to the fan. Hope this helps.

Hi, if the first 35 uf run cap shorted, you most likely have a shorted to ground compressor. This is what causes them to burn out.A 35uf, x 440 volt run cap is for the compressor only. You should or will have a smaller one for the out door fan.1 lead from the contactor feeds one side of the capacitor, energizes it. The S wire also plugs into that same terminal. Then the R or run wire from the compressor, and C will go to the other side to start it. The 2 left ove have to be commons to feed other componants, you will need to follow them to see, as I can't pull up any diagram for that model. You need to have the compressor ohmed out, or checked to see if it is shorted to ground. To do this, remove the 3 wires to the compressor terminal. Make sure the power is off! If you have a voltage tester that has the audio alert for checking fuses and so on, touch the black lead to a clean spot on the compressor of copper line, and tough each one to each terminal. If you get a beep, it is shored to ground, and you will need to replace your compressor. Do this check and let me know.
