Electrical problems account for around 80% of all central air conditioner unit failures, and in many of these situations, the capacitor is to blame.
A service call to replace a capacitor may easily cost $300 to $400 or more, but the component itself is often just $10 to $20, so the cost savings of doing it yourself are obvious. While many air conditioner repairs should be left to the experts, this is one you can do yourself.
In many electrical appliances and devices, capacitors serve a number of functions, but in a central air conditioner, they work as a sort of battery, storing enough electrical power to activate the system’s many motors, including the compressor, blower motor, and outside fan.
When a motor starts up, it requires a lot of power for a short period of time, and the capacitor stores the electrical power needed to “jump-start” these motors.
Some air conditioners combine all three motors into a single capacitor, while others utilise separate capacitors for the compressor, forced air blower, and exterior fan.
Replacing a capacitor is simple and only involves a few tools and materials, most of which you probably already have. Keep in mind, though, that capacitors are designed to store electrical current, so touching one or trying to disconnect it without first discharging the charge it is storing might cause a shock.
Simply slip the blade of a screwdriver over the two metal contacts to discharge. If you don’t do this, you can receive a nasty shock.
- Turn off the mains power.
- The Access Panel should be removed.
- Purchase a Capacitor Replacement
- The capacitor should be discharged, and the wires should be labelled.
- Capacitor should be replaced.
