    No, it falls into this:

    2. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) - not here.

    This site is for industry professionals and folks seeking HVAC/R advice and knowledge. Please do not ask for step by step instructions on purchasing, installing or repairing your own equipment. This is our job and our livelihood. We are generous, but not to a fault.

    You may not have asked for step by step.

    But, it does fall under a repair queston.

    If your actually a slales rep.

    Think BT's crazy, you haven't met some of the other residents of the site yet

    Insanity is often defined as attempting to accomplish a given task repeatedly in the exact same manner while expecting a different end result
    .

    Asking the same question repeatedly sort of resembles the above example and since insanity and crazy are synonymous..........

    While you are not attempting a DIY HVAC repair project, hundreds if not thousands of would be DIYers search this site for answers daily, you most likely ended up here thanks to a search engine. The rules are to protect these lost soles from being burned, gassed, electrocuted or otherwise maimed in their endeavors to save a few pennies.

    The site description on Google probably isnt helping the DIY issue either

    I was all set to answer his question, too. .................................................. ................The answer is................................................ ............replace it when it is bad.
    Sound installation practices is the key to success. Equipment is only as good as the person installing it.

    If I can't fix it, it ain't broke.

    I think you know the answer to the question. You obviously have read the side of a capacitor and what it says. They are manufactured by whomever prints that label and sticks it to the side. So why wouldn't you listen to whatever they say? I also replace them when either A)The oil runs all over inside the control department B)They explode inside the compartment C)They bloat.
    I like DIY'ers. They pay better to fix.
