Capacitor or something else?

My Lennox AC compressor was not running on first start this spring, but the fan was. The old capacitor was at its limits when checked last year, so I replaced it (dual run 50/7.5 mF, 440/370) and I was careful to reconnect correctly. Now the compressor runs but not the fan. Suggestions? Thank you.

Did you replace the capacitor last year or just now?

Welcome to the forums.

It certainly sounds like you have a wire in the wrong place. A picture or two of your wiring there as well as the model number of the compressor unit would be a help.
