    I have the capacitor in hand. It is 250V. 60Hz 43-52uF Oper Temp Max 65 degrees. It is 3 & 1/4 inches tall and 1 & 3/8 inches wide. If you can locate one this size it should work.

    O.K- I'll check out Grainger's web site and if they DO have what I need I'll accept so you get paid.

    Well done, Seth. Back to you soon as possible.

Hey there, this should be an easy part to replace if you have the capacitor, I need to know the voltage rating on it and the mf rating. Once you give me them, I can show you were to get one.

    If you have room for this, this will take care of what you need. If you remove the existing capacitor and relay next to it, you can put this in place. There should be a wire going to the relay and a wire going to the capacitor. You can connect those two wires to the two on the hard start kit. The hard start kit is a relay and capacitor built into one. They are about maybe 4.5 or 5 inches tall, maybe 1.25 inches round.
    let me know if it will fit

Need part number for run capacitor Duo therm Model 600315.103

You can get capacitors from any electric motor repair/rebuild shop if your capacitor is a 3 wire it will be a 5uf 30uf capacitor the fan motor runs off the 5uf the compressor runs off 30 or 35uf it will also have 440v 330v ect under the 5uf or 30uf this is the voltage as long as the replacement capacitor is within 5% it will not hurt anything. Capacitors usually run 5 to 15 dollars at a repair shop much more from duo them. good luck
