Hi, The Capactor that you are talking about is a dual capactor. It works the fan and the hermitic compressor in one. The leg common is power into the capictor, The fan leg goes to the outdoor fan, the herm leg goes to the compressor. Good advice is when you change the capacitor you should also change any other start componants that are also there. I hope this helps.

Dawlance split ac


My guess is compressor motor overtemp cutout. So why is the motor overheating? Possibles: Needs bearing oil, bad bearings, compressor too much pressure, overfull with freon, mechanical friction, cooling fan not turning.

Suggest set thermostat to demand less cooling, see if compressor stays on longer.

Fuse keeps blowing on my Whynter portable ac


Is your compressors motor capacitor replaceable? I know that on a split system, a dead capacitor (typically a 35uF) can cause increased current draw, to the point of blowing fuses, though I've never had to replace one on a portable unit. I usually replace them with a 30uF capacitor, roughly the size of a "200ml can of softdrink".

A 'short' would be indicated by a breaker tripping or a fuse blowing at the time you turn on the unit, so I don't think you are dealing with a short. Since the compressor is a 'sealed unit' it's doubtful if you harmed it. However, washing down an AC with it running is not advisable and in fact is very dangerous. Electricity and water do not mix and a person can easily electrocute himself/herself doing this. That being said I would make sure the entire unit has dried out and with all power off - then 'inspect' all the electrical components - i.e. wire connections and 'starter relay' to make sure everything is in good condition. The fact that the fan is running indicates the 'starter relay' is ok - again - I would check all the electrical components, especially where the wires connect to the compressor. My guess is you have a wire burnt off of the compressor which probably happened while the unit was being washed.

Split AC capacitor fused.


You need to trace the wires back to the device ie compressor, the fan now then write the color down. Note the capacitor has two different sides to it herm which is compressor and fan. then the common in the middle. Take the compressor wire should only be one and connect it to the herm. Now take the fan should only be one again and connect to fan. two devices connected. You might have two more wires and they go to the common. If you need any more help just get back to me. ken

Electrolux split AC 1.5 ton inside fan working.But out side compressor fan stops after two or three rotations.


The 2 most common issues are a freon leak or the outside unit fan start capacitor goes out. It's more likely a capacitor issue. They fail regularly, especially when it's hot out. I had a fan capacitor go out on one of my 3 units last year and it cost close to $300 for an AC company to come out and fix it. I watched them fix it and it's something that you can do yourself if you know what you're doing and are careful to hook it up right. I have three AC units and another capacitor went out this year and I found a kit with detailed instructions with pictures and phone support at hvacrepairkits.com. It saved me over $200 on the capacitor replacement.

i think the problem would be the compressor. unplug the unit and if you know how to test the resistance of the terminals, then do a ground check on the compressor. if it is grounded, then it is broke. if not grounded, then observe it as it runs if it would start, if it can not start then you still have to check the starting components such as the capacitor and the wirings associated with it.

tnx for using Fixya
