Rheem Classic X capacitors


This is my first post, I live in Texas and am in desperate need to fix my A/C before the summer heat starts. I have a very old Rheem Classic X, the compressor run capacitor blew (up) and by the looks of the wiring job someone did inside of it, I have good reason to believe the compressor start and run capacitors may not be correct. I have a Copeland compressor, Model #CRG3-0250-PFV, Serial #CT87E-41296H.
Can someone please tell me what the proper dual run and start capacitor is for this unit?

old is CORRECT. that is a 1987 unit and you should start budgeting/saving for a new one soon as the compressor is worn and it may seize up or break soon. try Graingers or americanhvacparts.com . they looked one up for a Carrier for a previous poster.

American HVAC Parts never answered my inquiry and Grainger isn't any good for me because I'd have to setup a business account in order to buy parts. Does anyone else have any information or suggestion?

Got the model and serial of the condenser unit? Might be able to find it that way.

especially in Texas! how the heck did it last that long, Grandma only drove it to church on Sunday. would not even last that long where I am and we have 1/3 the usage they do. somebody won the lottery with that one but it may die soon and probably on the hottest day of the year.

I can't find any numbers stamped on the unit. Where would they be?

There usually is a nameplate on the outside of the unit near where the electrical connection is. And often they are printed on the wiring diagram on the inside of the access cover. Of course on a unit that old you might need to look for hieroglyphics.
