Air conditioner not working, circuit board and run capacitor are out. Called AC Company and the price for installing circuit board was unreasonable and customer service was unsatisfatory. Company said they could get unit working by replacing capacitor and routing around circuit board straight to fan motor but fan motor would run 24/7. I told them I was ok with that and repairs were made.
1 1/2 months went by and both units and everything in attic went out, breaker continued to reset. Called electrician and diagnosed as a ground in ac unit that was previously worked on. Called new AC company and was told that a 12.5 msd capacitor was installed instead of a 10.0, burned up my fan motor and the ground caused the electrical problems. New AC company installed new Capacitor, circuit board and fan motor.
Called old company to tell them about installing incorrect capacitor, was told that I was wrong, sent them proof and was told it was not their error as the wrong size capacitor had nothing to do with fan burning up instead it was the fan running 24/7 that did it.
New company said circuit board had nothing to do with fan motor going out and that if anything it helped the life of the fan motor as there was no stopping or starting of the fan motor for 1.5 months.
I am confused......what is the correct answer?
