If the capacitor is bad the compressor will not run

Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.

it will run but less efficiently eventually causing it to fail so definitely use the capacitor

Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.

if the compressor is hot to the touch and the fan motor is running the compressor is drawing high amperage and will eventually shut down. please rate me as that's how I get paid thanks should you need further help please send a reply .
