Installed incorrectly for 20 yrs? (Compression fit washer valve, copper to PVC)

For my washing machine cutoff box, 20 year old house, I have to replace the cold water valve because it no longer can turn the water all the way off.

Thanks... I caved, spent the $40, got it today, and it's working again

I weighed all the pros and cons, carefully considered that there was a ticking clock since I may end up running into the weekend, stores closed, that sort of thing, then balanced my time vs. money...

Using a too-big capacitor temporarily (40/5 instead of 30/5)

My other AC (number 2) (for those who remember my other number 1 unit's problems) acted up and the capacitor is bad (confirmed after checking with a multimeter.)

Thanks... it's been behaving all day, so I haven't had a chance to definitively prove it is/was the contactor, but it's sounding logical.

Thanks PJ & Bob. FYI, it's a HN52KD025 contactor.

My hypothesis that something's up with the contactor began because of the loud click, but non-starting of the outside unit. (Neither the fan nor...

Contactor testing

My A/C drama continues.

I replaced my condensor fan because it squealed and at times didn't run, which I had hoped was the end of my woes. (It did correct some woes for a while. For one, I know...

Solved. Perhaps slightly early to break out the champagne but so far so good

I didnít get to put in the new condenser fan until today. 13 hours later and all is well though.

Furnace filter question - the way this was done seems very wrong
