Thanks again! I know the motor was replaced because it was done shortly after bought the house. I had to call the warranty company after that failed. Another guy came out and said the first guy did it wrong. So they made the first guy come back out. Now it's a 14 months later. Combined with what you're telling me and the questionable work I'm feeling like I have to look a little closer.
I'll check to see if the motor is actually connect to both capacitors.
I'd also like to make sure 7.5 is the correct rating for the replacement motor. Should that information be on the motor label? If so, how would it be labeled?
I'm now wondering if my motor is starting to fail and it's not actually the capacitors.
