sized right... it should have lasted longer than a year.
The capacitor was sized by Dayton for that motor. 370 VAC (VCA) 15 MFD I didn't dig into sizing the capacitor I simply went with the one that they told me I needed for the motor. The motor is the exact same size as the one that came out of the furnace, it is just made by another manufacturer and made in China along with the capacitors. I agree that a capacitor is often the component that fails but it should last for longer than a year, the orginal lasted for more than 10.
