My compressor does not come on. The service man has diagnosed it to the starter capacitor...which I too believe it is. I ordered that part from you yesterday and should have it by Thursday. My question is how do I know it's not the Starter - ptc Part Number: AP2114988 and what does this part do other than provding a place for the start capacitor to plug into and facilittate the connection to the compressor. In other words can this part break in any way that it could be the problem and not the start capacitor.
ANSWER Hello Keith. Usuall the starter ptc is the problem and not the capactior. You can test the capacitor with a digital meter. TJMA-DM1 If it reads resistance, then goes back to open, it's good. Hope this helps.
