Can't find capacitor size


Been searching the internet for the correct size round dual run capacitor for an Amana RHE36A2D heat pump. Found it for the 48 (60/12.5/440V), but no luck for the 36.

Anyone have a handy reference??

Thanks in advance.

Dave

If you remove it and smear cooking oil on the numbers and use a magnifying glass U may be able to read them.

I'll try, but it's pretty rusted.

flag any service van you see on the road and you shoud be able to buy it for 20 bucks or so. Any HVAC parts supply house will carry it.

Only if the guy doesn't tell his boss he sold it.

Glad it worked out! That first price was very high, so I assumed it was proprietary or special!
