Motor capacitors can be replaced. Match the nametag uf (microfarad) value and voltage (e.g. 370V). Allways turn off power and short out capacitors before handling them, can use a screwdriver and touch both terminals, capacitors hold a charge that can give an unpleasent jolt when charged.

What are BTUs for vintage propane oven/cooktop?

This is the only thing I can find on that brand. I would have thought your propane supplier could have given you the information?

Or you could Google propane stoves and pick one that is similar. I won't make that much difference. Like this site

Hard Start - How do I wire the black power wires to a RCO810 3 'N 1 on my LG refrigerator.

you cannot bypass the start capacitor as it is vital to start the compressor
talk with an electrician the pink is the active (120v full time ) the blue is the neutral as it is the return wire and the black should be from the capacitor to the compressor (120v)
It is best advice to talk with an electrician before you do real damage to someone.

2004 Impala drivers side window will not go up

The problem may be in the driver switch.
The motor runs in both directions. So when the switch is centered, both wires are grounded. When the switch is moved to up one wire is given power and in the down position the other wire is given power.
If one wire is always hot and the switch is centered, the motor may be fried.
You can try applying fused power from the battery to one wire and grounding the other to see if the motor will move.

Trying to replace the start relay on my Roper refrigerator.

depending on the model and the part # of the ptc overload relay will tell you how to wire it back as was,on some ptc O/L's there are spaces on the component where you just plug it on piggyback to this ptc,if not then all you do is wire the capacitor in parallel to the 2 power pins on the compressor,the cap doesn't actually start or run the units compressor,its there to help suppress the arcs on the relay when it starts,the compressor will operate without this capacitor

Weatherking 3 ton Run Capacitor

Could be; age,lightning,power surge,defective wire,loose wire,tight compressor. Capacitors fail sooner or later. They are like batteries they do not last for ever.

I am replacing the a/c blower motor and capacitor. The old motor has 1 brown wire to the capacitor, 1 yellow wire to the capacitor (the yellow then loops from the capacitor over to the wiring panel), 1...

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

What terminal on the capacitor gets the blue wire from the run terminal on the compressor? Does it go in the terminal with the white wire or the blue wire?

Follow the start wire from the compressor to the capacitor, the run wire will go to the opposite side.
For instance if the white wire is the start wire on your compressor then the run wire will go to blue wire and vice versa.
