I have a Trane XB-10 (outside unit) and noticed late yesterday that my unit fan was not working. I flipped the outside breaker off for a couple of mins, then back on. Within 45 secs - 1 min. something kicked on and I noticed a "humming" noise coming from unit and within 10-15 more secs I noticed a click and then....nothing. I haven't noticed any standing water, line condensation, or anything out of the ordinary as far as what I'm used to seeing when I am working around the unit (landscaping, mowing, etc.) The fan still doesn't turn and I have posted a pic of my capacitor in the case that this is the issue. Please offer advice and assistance if you can.

It needs replaced.
Thanks for the help beenthere.....
Are there any underlying issues that could cause this to happen? Anything as a DIY-er homeowner I could do to prevent this in the future or any further damage?
Thanks again. :thumbup:

Was able to get in touch with someone who had a cap, put it in (after I cleaned the coils - HOLY :censored: !!!!! those things were filthy and I think I disturbed a mouse nest too) cranked it up and now I'm happy (and more importantly - so is the Mrs.)
