    Wait till you see one pop, or better when you see a terminal blow.

    The first time I saw a terminal blow it scared me so bad I nearly fell off the roof when I jumped back. It sounded like a gun went off, and there was a lot of smoke from the burning oil. It was a sight to see.

    I never seen one that clean.
    All of the ones I have found had the foil and paper all over the place.

    Did you notice the rust? Where did the water come from that shorted it out?

    Its a Russell condensing unit on the ground outside the building. There is a hill where water runs down towards it but i was never there when it rained hard to definitely say there is a drainage/flooding problem.

    Never seen 1 blow like that.
    They always rip open a tear at the top and get that crap spewed everywhere.
    1 actually blew on a tune up from a 25 year old unit, original run cap, with mean few feet away.
