BIG FIRE! Even the mulch around the pad was burning. The capacitor was demolished, only saw goo and a few pieces of burnt plastic. Fried all the wiring, the contactor, defrost board and the low voltage fuse in the AH.
Without a schematic, it was burnt too, Brent had the sucker rewired enough to cool within an hour. House only rose 1 degree and it was 104° out.
