About AC Capacitors
Air conditioner capacitors can be found in a few different shapes and sizes. Depending on the unit, it could contain one or several capacitors. Here are the different types of motors found in cooling systems:
- Compressor Motor Run Capacitor: This is the capacitor that fails most often. Typically, this is a dual capacitor, having two in one.
- Indoor Blower Motor Run Capacitor: This is a small, single capacitor that assists in starting and running the indoor blower motor.
- Outside Fan Motor Run Capacitor: Similar to the indoor blower motor capacitor, this is the smaller capacitor that helps to operate the outside fan that blows through the outside coils.
- Start Capacitor: Included in some models of air conditioners, this is an auxiliary start capacitor that helps jump start the unit if necessary. These are typically not as common.
Why Capacitors Go Bad
The decline of a capacitor is measured in units called “micro farads” or “capacitance”. When produced, capacitors are labeled with the specifications of their capacitance, and a range. This range tells what is the allowed operating range for the capacitor. If the capacitor begins to go south, the capacitance measured will be outside of the labeled range. Without the proper tools and knowledge, this can sometimes be difficult to find. And with there being a high risk of shock, we recommend only having a professional look into this for you.
