You havnt said what the brand or model is. However, the value of the cap should be printed or impressed on it. Also, there should be a circuit diagram in the neiborhood of it too, which may specify its value.

    There is your answer... [ 3 mfd 370 Volt ] Plug that into a google search and you will get a couple hundered places to order on online. Otherwise find a local electrical supply store to buy one. Phone first cos many supply stores hve a degree of specialization and may not have this part.

Do I have to use a wiring harness for Klimaire multi-zone mini split or can I hardwire into the power between studs? Are there any cables that need to run from the wall unit to the outside compressor

The specs on that unit dont list the wattage of the head unit. I would be very careful about just tapping into the wiring in the wall. First off you need to know what the wire size is in the wall. The second thing is that you have to enclose it in a box if you tap it. The outside unit is another issue. It has to have its own source of wiring and it has to meet specs for outdoor use. So you will have to run a circuit just for that. No matter how you do this. You should have an electrical inspection done before it is finished.

I have an AMANA A/C unit. 31/2 tons. The capacitor is going out and need to have it replaced. will we need a 30 or 40 amp capacitor?

capacitors are not rated by amps, the are rated in microfareds, but that really isn't the issue, how do you know it is going out. The model number of the outdoor unit will be enough to determine the correct size capacitor if that is what is wrong. Mr. G

Unit needs a new capacitor and it does not the value printed on it and its not on the label

Short of going direct to the manufacturer and getting the genuine part off them using the model number, it would be very difficult. Compressor size and machine size very often have no bearing on what capacitance the capacitor has... Have a very close look at the capacitor for a uf rating.. this is the value you need. sometimes, it is listed on the wiring diagram which is usually behind the panel which covers the main wiring terminal box on the outdoor unit.

I need to know the proper piston size for this unit when it came with a 63 on one peice and a 68 on another I used the 63 and the unit doesn't seem to be working properly please advise

use the size that came with the outside condenser. if the outdoor unit is more than 6,000 btu's than the indoor unit, it will not cool properly. you can always mate a outdoor unit to a indoor coil that in 12,000 btu's or less in size.
