    Smile Replacement Cap Dilema

    15 year AC condenser Dual Run Cap died. Wanted to get an exact replacement...No Joy....Best is 1uF less on the fan
    Dead Cap is a GE 97F9833 (HC989/jA031D) a 30uf/6uf 370V +/6%

    Replacements for that Part # apears to be
    GE Genteq C3305R 30/5 uf 370 volt

    Is that going to kill the fan I understand the 6uf cap drove the fan part of the system will it work ok with 5uf.

    Hope this is an "allowed post

    30/6 uF capacitors are readily available. Your tech can install one for you.

    Thanks not readily available to Joe Shmoes like me.
    I am capable of changing a cap.
    Seems like they are only available to techs.

    Further, you did not answer my question really.
    Any help is always appreciated.
