AC unit that you check your capacitor and even if it's perfectly fine finding a replacement one with the exact same specs on it and buy it because it will go on you and it will go on you at a bad time usually there isn't a good time for these things to go especially.
In Texas because you want your AC working all the time so I'll show you how to replace this and you know I'll show you how to test it as well though in general you really don't need to test it you'll see I'll show you how you can whether it's failed or not without even having a meter because it does have one telltale sign that it's failed and other.
Than your AC unit is not working okay so I'll show you how what the failure was and what it looked like on my AC unit plus everything else you need to know to replace it again do not be without one a spare one of these for your AC unit it is essential and I'm telling you eventually you'll be very glad you have it my replacement unit by the way cost fifty five dollars.
From the AC guy on Amazon it's twelve bucks so I mean just for that I saved you know I'll save you know what forty bucks on the installation or the replacement of the next one if this one goes or when this one goes alright I'm going to show you the okay before beginning any kind of work on your AC unit you need to find your breaker box that holds the breaker for the going.
To your AC unit and as you can see here there is my box there's my AC unit usually not very far away from it and you'll see a wire going from it to the AC unit so first the reason you need to find out breaker box is because you need to remove the breaker to room disconnect the going to the actual air-conditioning unit so we're going to do that next it's the first thing we need to do is open the breaker box you see a little lock at the bottom on this one yours may be somewhere else but push down on the lock open the door.
