Well, Just bought an old house, but the AC is pretty new (only 2 or 3 years old). I do not know why the capacitor is missing from the unit, I was trying to find an user manual from Carriers website, so far no luck. Can anyone help. Thanks.

Is it a single or a duel?
If a duel the fan motor should have the rating on the data tag.
What’s the compressor numbers?

I recently had to replace my A/C condenser's cap. We are so used to seeing caps measured in μF that one which provides mF is huge!
