    I second garyed, unless you ignored a checklist provided by the company they shouldn't fault you.


    "If we replaced everything that looked iffy then there would be a lot more replacements going on"

    I don't think that's a bad thing. Is it better to have a $6 cap go out on a saturday night and you're eating the warranty call?

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Comparing a capacitor or a contactor to an engine is stupid its more like a belt or an alternator no reason to junk a unit for those items being bad.

    Now a Compressor is the engine of the unit and that I would not replace

    I check caps on anything over 5 yrs old,unless we are not very busy,then I will take the time to check all caps,yes I know most of you will say check them all,I have only found 4 weak caps this summer so far.by the way most of the time I don't ask the customer if they want to replace it,I just put on a new one and give them the bill,they called me to fix it and I do.now if the repair they need is over 400 bucks then I talk to them first,or if they are low on freon then I talk to them about a leak check,which could get very costly.

    caps pop when the wanna. since last thursday it's been over 100+. A cap that was good on wednesday can swell up and let go just like that.
