I have never heard of that or tied it. After doing HVAC I would not trust that it discharged. The power is already stored in it, can't see how that would discharge a capacitor. You would be taking a chance with out shorting it out....

Well, much to the DW's disappointment, I'm still alive! 😝

I just thought I would throw out might crazy thought for someone with more experience to let me know if I'm safe or insane.

well your probably safe being the small capacitor, but I wouldn't try it on a 5 ton unit with alot higher megs stored. Better to be safe then sorry, I don't think that little charge would hurt you but it might make you jump and fall off the roof...

3.5t hurts too....one got me the other day as I was adding a SPP6. I would use an analog meter if you have one...it is safer than shorting. I was told years ago..not to short then out. I never do if I care about the cap.

Good thing DW doesn't read this otherwise she would send me back up there and spray the hose on me while I'm messing with it!
