Are you sure the compressor is even pumping for two minutes? You said MFD on capacitor is correct, but did you verify with a meter?
I can only get refrigerant in when the compressor kicks on, so I'm guessing it is pumping when the compressor kicks on. If the capacitor is bad, wouldn't my compressor not kick on? Or do you think the capacitor could be affecting my amps even though it has the right mfd?
