How can I tell if the capacitor on my compressor is bad and if so can it be ohm out?
Answer Hello Rodney. When testing the capacitor, you should get a spike of resistance and the go back to open. If it does this, then the capacitor is good. Hope this helps.

Thanks I found the controller was burnt on one side. Would I have to replace the run capacitor also?
Answer Hello Tony. No, the capacitor should be fine on the unit. Just replace the starter on the side of the compressor.
It smells like the run capacitor or compressor controller is burning?
Answer Hello Tony. You will need to remove the cover off the side of the compressor and check to see if the starter is burnt and needs to be replaced.
