Question about Heating & Cooling
The capacitor is bad and i need to know what one goes in it.
The capacitor should have a lavel with its information. If there is no information on the lavel, then a ball park figure can be used or if you want the exact value capacitor, then you will need the lavel information from the device the capacitor is connected to and serves, then you will need to find a source with this answer such as a refrigeration company, motor company.
A condensor motor may use 5-10 microfarads/370 volts, a compressor will be more, 20-30 microfarads, a start capacitor about 100-150 microfarads/480 volts.

This is an indication of out-of-regulation in the power supply section. The very
common caused of this fault is the leaky
electrolytic capacitor in
that section. It will drop the supply from normal voltage and
will disable the unit. Sometimes it has a bulged/dome at the top but not all, it is better
that you have a capacitor
checker/tester to determine
its condition. Also, bad
solder joints can produce the
same symptom, it is hard to spot, you should use table lamp/portable lamp for
finding the cold solder. Once isolated the faulty capacitor and resoldered the bad solder joints your unit will back to normal again
If you don't have necessary tools
and test instruments, and can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to
look for a professional to troubleshoot the problem. Don't
attempt to work in the power supply if you don't know the safety precaution of handling it, there some stored
electricity enough to hurt you with a little mistake only.
Also check if your unit is under warranty /extended warranty,
avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free. Don't open
the back panel, this will void the warranty.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
