You can't mismatch capacitors on a unit. cause premature failure of componente in system

just about all on the market use start/run capacitors

### What is the rule of thumb for computing the capacity of horsepower of air conditioner in terms of area, e.g. square meters

Horsepower does not necessarily matter. Horsepower is not computed to capacity. Amounts of btu/ heat removal, is measured capacity. 12,000btus which equals 1 ton of cooling will cool a maximum of 500 sqft depending on the heat load. Obviously a brand new home with updated insulation vs a closed in lanai with a wall of windows...you get the idea

### What is the minimum volts required to run 1.5 ton 5 star AC?

Low voltage will burn out all the motors Higher currents will ruin the start capacitor on the compressor and fan motors too. 220 vac is the minimum. You have to allow for inrush or start up current which most likely is the cause of the under voltage. You'll have to get a larger capacity stabilizer.

### Replace compacitor on Carrier 5 ton 3 phase AC

Your 3 phase unit should not have a capacitor. I'm guessing it's single phase. If it's a single capacitor than the compressor should not be going to it also. To test the motor, common to start plus common to run should equal the ohms you get between start and run. For instance, 1.2 ohms+ 2.2 ohms= 3.4 ohms. Follow the wiring diagram on the inside of the door, send model number!!

### Weatherking 3 ton Run Capacitor

Could be; age,lightning,power surge,defective wire,loose wire,tight compressor. Capacitors fail sooner or later. They are like batteries they do not last for ever.

### What wire size do I run for a 3 1/2 ton AC unit?

it depends on the distance from main power source # 8 if more than 40 feet look at starting amps then google a wire sizing voltage droop chart

### Amana 1 ton Residential AC / Outside unit comes on for a sec

open the service panel to check for control voltage of 24volts when tstat calling, The contactor should be pulled in, if contactor is down,and contacts appear to be clean, and the unit is still not running, it is a bad compressor. to test this unplug the black wire from the compressoror at contactor,w/ power off! Turn on power if fan works normally it's a bad compressor. However if you see a swollen split cap(5 wires to a soup can looking w/ the terminal C,F,and Comp), switch it first and start at square one.
You also need to consider the high pressure switch if its cycling on off on off.

### No problem,just confused.

You will usually find that it is the model number.
Or maximum total weight of vehicle.

I had a dodge ram 2500, which only had a 1/2 ton capacity.
good luck
