    Is your Condenser bulging? If its Leaking and you can hear it than you have some serious issues. Better call your HVAC contact because most likely you have or had some High head press. issues.
    If your not getting the results you desire then change. People change from either desperation or inspiration.

    My thought is that he/she is referring to a capacitor and not a condenser.
