Dear JACustomer,

 

I can see by your text that you have a 25 uf capasitor... this is a run capasitor but you asked about a start capasitor....Which one are you needing? the start cap is black plastic, the run is silver metal....

Billy is off line right now so maybe i can help.

Ok. I need the start cap. It is black.

Ok,

 

Now to find out the OEM replacement size we need your model number and you might as well get your serial number too.

Trane XR 12 3045WKE1F

 

Please bare with me. The Trane xr 12 is the name of the unit but is not the model number... the number will start out like: 2ttr or 4ttr.... or if older then ttr

It is a split heat pump system and it has 2TWR2024A1000AA on it. I didn't see a 2TTR or 4TTR on it anywhere. It's about 7 to 8 years old.

That is ok. the ttr is a straight cool unit. Ok it will take a short while to get the exact replacement size. I will research this and get back to you. Are you ok with this? Maybe 30 min.

No. the one that was on it was 50/40 hz. Why was it not 60hz?
Are you in the US? If you are than you should have a 60Hz. (i think you already know this). Any way, be sure to get the correct size and voltage. it is very important.
