Um... What? Edit: I didn't DV you, but someone else apparently thinks this is ludicrous as well.

I doubt that a guy looking to go pro in a year would post something negative about his durability. I would guess this has nothing to do with this health.

I'd suggest calling your team "1340" and increase it by one every single day that Michigan doesn't beat Ohio State.

I hope this is the end of the story: Local HVAC guy had a spare capacitor in his truck, so I picked it up last night (free of charge, but he scored some beer -- I love small town living) and installed it, and it seems the issue is resolved. FWIW, there was no charge in the capacitor when I removed it...I gotta think that was the problem, right?

Thanks all for your help as well!

Thanks all! After the A/C ran fine all night and morning, it's back at it this afternoon. Maybe it does this when it's warmer and stressed? At any rate, ordered this bad boy and, with Prime, hope to be good to go in 2 days.

To echo SL above...what a community we have here at 11W!

Thanks, I read that online as well. It said to use an insulated screwdriver to connect the prongs. I'm sure I'll figure it out if I do it wrong!

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Thank you sir for taking the time to answer. I'm not sure you read the entire situation...I don't think I have a thermostat problem, and this isn't from running the unit at night. I appreciate the time you took though!

Thanks CC, I will. I always feel good about fixing things I know nothing about...good learning experience. The capacitor I need is on Amazon for $12, so I feel like I have very little to lose.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Thanks. I'm not sure, but I was still thinking I'd replace the capacitor for $12 on Amazon and see where that leads me... Worst case scenario is it craps out later and I pay the HVAC guy then, and I'm only out the $12?

Comment 26 Jul 2015

I was thinking it froze b/c the lack of air flow wasn't allowing the cold to release. (I don't know how else to say that technically.) Interested to hear if I'm thinking incorrectly though.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

No doubt. When I first saw the ice, my heart sank. If all I need is a capacitor I can get online for $12 or less, I'll be very thankful.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Here's a bit more info that I left out. Last Sunday I did some sanding inside, and I forgot to shut my furnace off. I had just changed the filter not long before, but I checked it yesterday when the A/C wasn't working, and it was a mess. For a while I was assuming I'd burnt out the blower. Not sure if that info helps or not.

That article on Cardale is garbage. Not once did it use the phrase 'arm talent'.

Comment 22 Jul 2015


People do that? I mean, I'll listen in the car occasionally, but I can't imagine sitting down and turning on a sports talk show on TV. To each his own, I guess.
