Hello, its not a capacitor problem if the unit runs when you push the solenoid (contactor) in manually... the problem is in the 24volt control circuit.
If you choose to 'finish and rate' this answer positively, I will hold the question open for an extended coaching session, up to 2 hours...so that you will be able diagnose and possibly repair the problem yourself. lacking such a rating I can waste hours of my coaching time at my own very considerable expense...I hope you understand.
