So my compressor quit on my.  Just a hum/buzzing.  So I pulled the belt, same.  Spin the motor pulley by hand, throw the switch and and she goes - capacitor correct?


So I could easily find the same capacitor p/n - but all have four poles/terminals.  Original has two.  Ordered a new one, but havn't seen it close enough, how does it get wired?





One I ordered

When you see it you will know. Even though there are 4 posts there’s only 2 terminals.

OK, thats what I was thinking/hoping - like you said, havn't had one in hand
