Capacitor Help

Where does a person get a capacitor for a Janitrol C/A outside unit and any idea how much they cost?

Capacitors are not really brand specific. Just look at the value(s) (may be a dual capacitor) and the voltage rating. Buy a capacitor that has the same mfd value(s) and equal or higher voltage rating. You can buy one on or possibly at a Graingers (if you have one nearby).

Most HVAC supply houses or even some combined appliance/hvac supply places will sell you one over the counter. They aren't making much off you, but are usually happy to help with non-sealed system parts. At least in my experience.

Type the part number in Amazon, you'll likely get results.

If the AC unit blows warm air, it this capacitor issue?

That's one several things it could be.

Is the fan running on the outside condensor ?
If not..... it maybe more than a cap problem.
