Air Conditioner Maintenance

Last week I replaced both run and starter caps in both ACs. Repalcement frequency is different based on manufacturer but i do it every 8-10 years, I even do the house. It takes about 15-20 minutes total.

I replaced with hard starter kit in the living room AC with a with SUPCO SPP5 PTC Cap combo (some prefer the SPP6) and kept the old PTC unit (A-1 WSX-7) as a spare for the bedroom unit.

For the bedroom unit I replaced both caps instead of buying another SUPCO). I also changed the motor - it was worn out.

As caps age they dry and fail. The last thing you want is to fire up the AC when you're at the park at it blows hot air, or nothing at all. You can get the caps at your local AC place, on-line, or get them from the OEM.
