His explanation led me to believe he was using 2 caps not a dual cap.
He said he changed out the 5 mfd 3 times.
He also said he has 2 brown wires, which normally would be power in power out for a single cap.
And yes the red(com) wire would go to L2.
I could not find a diagram myself. Just giving info from logic of most systems.
I am with JW...send me a picture of this weirdo.
:P :P :P Oh you mean the Air Conditioner.  :rofl: :rofl:

I can barely use a PC let alone do the fancy stuff you do my friend. perhaps you could post the procedure to me and I might figure it out with my limited skills. I said I was an appliance whiz not a frigging PC genius, however I am not stubborn as to learning new thangs. Any tutoring you may volunteer to do is quite acceptable and appreciated.
