How old of a unit is it? Chances are it is R-22. If it is newer than last year it may be R-410a. The unit should indicate what type, and charge (lbs/oz) on the nameplate of the outdoor condensing unit. Hope this helps.

Need to know size of start capacitor for compressor fan start is 5

OK there are "start capacitors" & "run capacitors". I think you are after the run capacitor. A start capacitor KIT is only for the compressor. If you are after the capacitor that looks like the fans capacitor that can be tough. I've seen a lot of capacitors that are faded and can't be read. The only way is to get the compressor model number from the compressor its self. Usually on top of it but may be on the side. AND THE MAKER (Copeland, bristol...) Then you need to call some local parts houses (for a/c or refrigeration) and give them make & model # to see if they can get you the info. They probably won't sell the part to you but try. If its a Copeland compressor, the app store has an app called "xref" that is awsome. Has worked for me %95 of the time when I have had the same problem.

Carrier air conditioner model 38yca030370, need to know what kind of capacitor it needs?

Have him bring the old one back as it is yours. Check for the megaferons it has and the capacitance rating. Problem is hooking up thie wires needs to be done with knowledge of the system. $60 for a capacitor, $1200 for a blown compressor if hooked up wrong. You decide

Goodman CLJ36-1A with bad Copeland Compressor CR30K6-PFV. Any suggestions where to get a replacement compressor?

Not a DIY project. You'll need refrigerant recovery equipment, vacuum pump, manometer, refrigerant scall, refrigerant disposal bottles, high pressure nitrogen tanks and regulators, acetelyn tanks with regulators and torch tips not to mention EPA license. Call a reputable service company. In South Central PA, fair price range is $1,500 - 2,000. If the unit is more than 10 years ole, replace the condenser (if they can get one for your refrigerant) for about $1000 more.

Hello,By all means install a hard start kit on the cap.Your wiring is correct.A scroll compressor usally doesn't need a start kit but I have seen 5 ton units that take one.Check the compressor tag and make sure the compressor is not a 3 phase motor!
