Exactly. And the "equal length" of the ground wire may not be long enough to reach the ground block. There's an extended box and the ground block is 4" back on the bottom. So it's going to be a...

yes, they all come that way. Pre-fab wiring with about 30" of conduit and 3 6" wires. It looks like it might just be long enough. fingers crossed; I'll know tomorrow

Nobody is answering so I'll just close this out by saying the new board fixed the problem. For $75 it's not really worth my time to try to figure out what was wrong with the board.

Rear of Board

The thing has been working 90% of the time and I know how to kick is, so I haven't been motivated to take out the board to re-solder it. The other day I found someone selling a replacement board for...

I looked at it when I replaced the connector and it looked pretty solid. Its been working for a week, so I haven't been motivated to shut it down and pull the board out. Although I should do it...

Do you mean cracks on traces or in the solder? Can it be reflowed in that case?

I'd just buy a new circuit board if I could find it, but it's some sort of OEM part so I'll have to pay a lot for...

It's acting up again. Hmmph!

I got a friend to put a pic up so I don't have to deal with photobucket. Again, just nudging any of the top 4 wires on the controller board fires it up. Weird that it...

It's funny. With all the multimeters, diagrams and tips I ended up finding the problem with a fat finger hitting a connector by accident. The old screwdriver in the radio trick.

I'm wondering...

It's also a questionable installation. I went to the local CAP shop with my compressor run capacitor and they told me that the unit wasn't even supposed to have a run cap! They said these units...

Not really. its too small on the screen and photobucket is asking for money. Not that I can read a schematic anyway.

What is 1TB1-5? I dont see that anywhere. Note that it's been working since I re-seated the connector. Do the contacts on these need to be cleaned?

I'm remembering why I stopped using photobucket.

Sometimes it stays down, and sometimes not. When it doesn't, I noticed that I don't have the 26V to the contactor.

Ok, I've got it down to this:

The contactor doesn't engage maybe 1 out of 20 times. I can just push it in and it runs as usual. Everything else seems to run as expected.

It's been working for a 2nd day now. I got my 2nd Nest and installed it without a hitch. Who knows what was wrong with it. Maybe some dirt on the contactor?

Could a water flow problem cause this...

Capacitor testing

I have a 145-174 250V cap that measures 140uf. How do these ranged capacitors work? I know my 35 can be +- 5%.

I don't see that the fan is on a contactor at all. The compressor contact definitely isn't engaged when the fan is on, and it's a single contact. Been working all day. Luckily its not too hot out.
