Question about Heating & Cooling
The part you need is called STARTING CAPACITOR and it is located in the same compartment where the electrical connectors are in the outside unit. MAKE SURE THE POWER BREAKER IS OFF before opening the compartment. and before working with the capacitor, touch both terminals with a screw driver to short them out and discharge the capacitor. Don't worry this is just a preventive measure and no sparks are going to be coming out of it. Once the capacitor is discharged, take a picture of the wiring and label them before disconnecting the wires. Remove capacitor and take to an appliance parts store to get a new one.
HERE IS A PIC. OF HOW A CAPACITOR LOOKS LIKE
