I'm having trouble with my A/C. The old condensor motor went after 11 years and could not find the exact OEM. Was matched up with an AO Smith 182A. Installed with separate capacitor and it worked fine for 4 days. This morning when it went to kick on the motor ran slow and stopped after a minute or two. I had an hvac repairman over a week ago and he told me to take the motor back because it wouldn't work the way he hooked it up(onto a universal capacitor) on the 5mfd side. It ran slow the way he hooked it up so I put the separate capacitor in and it ran fine. I don't know if it shorted out because I didn't tape it onto anything and it may have touched the cover. Any way the motor is running slow and then heats up and shuts down. I hook it up to the universal capacitor and it runs the same. Do I need the separate capacitor which worked excellent for a few days or what? If anybody could help I would greatly appreciate it.
