Question about Hampton Bay Heating & Cooling
I checked wiring on my other 17,000 BTU Hampton bay AC & noted there was no overload switch wired into capacitor. So i just removed the burnt out overload switch which was causing a ground & blowing breaker. I noted it was not wired in between the compressor circuit but just attached to the compressor terminal & common terminal on capacitor. I guess it is a sacrafise type device that saves the compressor from burning out on overload. Anyway The AC worked fine with the burnt overload switch removed. It has been runnning 2 days now with no problems. I however did replace the capacitor with a new one. You can use either an oval or round capacitor as there is ample room. Just make sure your cap. values match old one. I will probable try & purchase a new overload switch if possable & install it at a later date, for the extra protection.
