Thank you Steve, those diagrams help. I have one of the original capacitors, the one that smoked up the house. AD apparently is the brand, 15 mfd (10%), 370v.

There's an unlableled component that the compressor common goes to. Maybe a relay. Doesn't look like one to me, but this rectilinear capacitor could have fooled me if it wasn't labeled.

I bought a pair (I like spares) of CSC 15 mfd (6%) 370v. from McMaster-Carr. I'll try using both. I wasn't aware dual was a possibility. Only 1 line voltage into the original capacitor, with two wires going out to the compressor, labeled S and R on the wiring diagram.

Difficult to figure out when you don't know what's required to make something work.

I was guessing the first diagram in that link was correct, but it didn't work. Of course I also don't know if this compressor is going to work. It was never used, just sat for close to 20 years.

You've been around YT since 2013, wouldn't remember T_Bone? I had a problem with a mismatch between the HPWH and my electronic controlled tank heater. The Whirlpool and Crispaire techs conferred and said they wouldn't work together. T_Bone helped me work it out, how I became friends with him. Amazing what expertise one can find on these boards.

Me too. Though I don't know if he knew more of capacitors than I do.

Heard no more from his widow after she apparently was interviewing me. I explained I was spoken for a long time ago, just trying to be helpful to her. One last favor for an old friend.

I finally found the car I wanted for a road trip and got the title cleared up on the Arizona mountain land I invited him to summer on. Could have made it out there this year, but he didn't stay around.

See if you can track down George Marsh. Bet he can help you.

Steve, George doesn't appear interested.

I did locate the current company, different name, who hasn't manufactured these units for so long the tech I spoke with had never seen one. He's been with the company 14 years.

I had to scan the wiring diagram for him.

Not a double capacitor, my first guess about how to hook it up was correct. Seems the compressor died a natural death, without ever doing any work.

Thank you for the effort.
