  1. Unusual capacitor challenge

    HVAC
    I have a Trane XR14 that is doing the typical buzzing sound but the fan isn't starting or running, even when bump started with a stick. The unit has two single run capacitors. One capacitor (135-162MFD) tested good, and the other (70uF) tested bad. I have a dual run 70/5uF handy. A single...
