I have a 166-0138 capacitor which is obsolete what can I replace it with

166-0138 is a fasco motor number not a capacitor. if you need a capacitor they are typical items that are rated in voltage and micro farads. you can replace the capacitor with one of the same rating from a hvac supply house.

How to wire Dayton capacitor E136401

It appears this is a 7.5 microfarad (mfd) capacitor like the ones installed on fans. If your fan motor has two brown wires, in addition to the black and white power wire, just fasten the two brown wire to the leads on the capacitor and insulate the connection with electrical tape and mount the capacitor in some dry convenient location inside the controls section of your unit. Be carefull to mount the capacitor in a location where it does not short an electrical connection.

If the capacitor is replacing the low side of a dual capacitor, for example a 35/7.5 capacitor, extend another lead from the common side of the dual capacitor to one side of the 7.5 capacitor and place the one brown lead from the fan motor to the other lead on the capacitor. If trying to replace the lower side, it is better to just replace the dual capacitor.

It is a Ruud UAKA-024JA2 combination of air conditioner and central heater. The outside air conditioner fan stopped running but buzzed. The capacitor is out of order. Do you have instructions how to locate...

I'm not sure how you determined that the capacitor needs replaced without being able to check it. But the capacitor is the round tube attached inside the box. It will have several wires coming from the top. it sits down in a round hole and is held in place with two screws. Rudd usually (although not always) have gray plastic capacitors. note when you disconnect the capacitor which wires go to herm (that is your compressor) fan and common. Usually the fan is brown and the compressor is yellow or orange. there are usually two wires on the common. Note how many microfarad the capacitor is and replace with same rating. the 5 microfarad side is for the fan. I would however replace the whole capacitor.

The Blower Motor on the Furnace won't come on all the time... Sometimes it sticks and then I spn that wheel and then it works fine... Should I replace the Motor or the Capacitor?

Pull the capacitor & have it checked for the correct microfarads rating with an electrical meter. If the reading doesn't match the rating stamped on the side of the capacitor, replace the capacitor. If the capacitor reads fine, then make sure you have proper voltage to the motor... and if you do, then replace the motor.

With the Air set to onor auto, i get power to the unit but it will not run, i hear like a starting noice but the fan will not move

Allow the motor an hour to cool off. Then try to restart via normal method PLUS try spinning the motor by hand. If the motor starts to run normally for a few minutes, disconnect the power, remove the capacitor, and take the capacitor to your local HVAC parts warehouse to have them test it for you. If the capacitor tests "failed", replace the capacitor. If the capacitor tests "good", you will need to replace the motor (replace the capacitor when you replace the motor).
Hope you find this to be very helpful to you, moving forward. :-)

Crackling Sound; Capacitors

If you see signs of leakage from a capacitor it is an indictaor it is bad. This is obvious because you will see dark fluid around it or the fluid maybe visible underneath it. Capacitors are rated by their value and their voltage rating. For example 100uf means 100 microfarad. Then you will see voltage rating, it may say 150V, and vice versa. It just means the capacitor cannot operate above that voltage or it will pop. Always replace capacitors with same value, for example if it is 100uf then replace it with that. The voltage rating, you can replace with either same voltage rating or higher. Hgiher voltage rating than original is actually better because it will last longer and may never have to replace them again. Makes sure you put them on right. Electrolytic capacitors are polarized(negative and positive side) A good circuit design would the capacitor voltage rating at least twice the operating voltage, but because of manufacturere trying to cut cost, they place one that is very close to the operating voltage, thats why we consumer end up with these problem. A higher voltage rating capacitor cost more thats the reason why. Sometimes it makes me think that it is done in purpose so the consumer buys another one. I worked on a tv where the capacitor is actually slightly lower than the operating voltage, that really don't make sense, at all.

Failed AC capacitor

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.

RV A/C fan won't start on its own

This could be the problem. It is more likely that the motor bearing is bad. Take the fan capacitor and have it tested. Or replace it, (under $20). Was the fan motor loud before this happened? Hopefully it is just the capacitor, the motor runs $60 - $100 and is a FUN to replace.

Sanyo DS25390 Cable Terminal Ripped off

I personaly would replace the entire unit, the capacitor is a Ceramic "DC Blocking/Couplng" capacitor, possibly a 0.001uF cap... I should think if ya take it to any component supplier/radio repair shop or the like they would be able to give ya a replacement?
