    Made in the USA, Titan HD run cap...not to shabby...there’s more accessories than what came with the unit, thinking one each cap. and one each contactor.

    That run cap was bulged and failed. I installed a new dual cap and aced the bang sticks, I left the 5-2-1 in the system

    I don't like the look of the wires entering the unit. Did you happen to connect the liquidtite to it.

    I wonder if they replaced the run cap with the wrong size, thus the frantic Start Cap stampede?

    I hate 8awg wires spit apart under screw terminals instead of lugs. So a new contactor, whip, caps, then probably low charge and leaky evap?
