Sometimes a capacitor will partially fail whereby increasing or decreasing the amperage the flows through the circuit- which is directly related to the function of the HVAC Unit or Air Conditioner. Most start and run capacitors are used in in Air Conditioning Units to allow enough amperage to flow through the starter motor to get the motor up to speed. Then the run capacitance will be reduced as the unit is running properly. Please call Jones Air Conditioning of Naples Florida. 239-227-3115
With a properly gauged ohm meter our technicians can test capacitance and verify a lead or post has not shorted or become corroded. The sooner you call the better because you could be wasting valuable energy. See Ohms Law in Previous posts on this information site.
