I just pulled off the cover. The tech had replaced the wires and he used a heavy gauge. The unit has a built in holder for the cap but the cap was
just sitting on the bottom ledge.
It may be that the capacitor the tech had on hand was a type that won't fit into the holder. There are two designs, being round and oval. Depending on dimensions, you may not be able to get a cap into the holder provided.
Let us know what the tech says about this, because we are not there to see everything.
Reptiles in LA??
I might want to mount the cap upside down, so reptiles can't get across the terminals, LOL!!!!

Cause of a burned terminal is typically corrosion or failure to tighten the terminal. I've had a few snap when tightening. I use pipe strap to hold capacitors in place when the new cap doesn't fit the old holder. I've seen capacitors walk around the compartment due to vibration, something ugly happens way too often.
“I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
