How to Test Motor Start and Motor Run AC Capacitor of ac fan and compressor

In this video, I have tested a 440VAC 30 MFD start capacitor by using 4 different methods. So that if you don't have a Capacitance meter, still you can test the capacitors. Previous Video: How to Test Capacitors with and without Multi-meter. https://youtu.be/NqvL7Cyemiw 01:13 [1st method:] In the first method, I have tested the start capacitor without using any multimeter. If you don't have the multimeter or any small DC source then you can use this method. But you have to take proper safety precautions. 03:22 [2nd method:] In this method, I have used a 20 volt DC source to charge the capacitor, and a small DC load to discharge it. 04:37 [3rd method:] In the 3rd method, I have used a multi-meter that has ohm scale, to test the start capacitor. with the above 3 methods, you can check the charging and discharging of the capacitor. 06:24 [4th method:] In the last method, I have used a multimeter that has capacitance (Farad) scale to test the capacitor. This is the most accurate method for testing the capacitor. If this video helped you out please don't forget to Subscribe, give it a Thumbs up and share it with your friends.

AC Unit Not Turning On - How to Fix It

Is your AC unit not turning on? Or maybe it's running but not cooling? This video walks you through a lot of the common fixes while explaining how it all works. We suggest watching the whole video so that you can understand the big picture of how your AC works and be able to figure out why your AC is not working on your own. But if you are looking for a walkthrough on something specific, here is a timetable you can use: 0:00 Sweet Intro 0:08 Introduction 1:07 Everything works but fan outside not spinning (easy fix) 1:41 Where to start first 2:20 A look at the thermostat 5:31 What to check for at the furnace 12:11 Condeser AC unit overview 16:36 Contactor (how it works and a quick test) 18:19 Capacitor 19:46 Dirty Condenser Coil 20:24 Mouse Nest 21:40 Condenser Fan Motor 25:08 Compressor 27:38 Freon 29:35 Questions or comments Check out my "How to Fix Your AC" playlist for more videos on how to diagnose and fix your air conditioner yourself! :) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLK8tZPlovA8Aw5W4GIoingc_enl5apH4C And The following.. Is a giant list that you can use as a reference. :) The parts and tools I list would be the ones I would buy for myself. BUT it's purpose is more to steer you in the right direction then show you the exact part/tool you need. So please do your due diligence and do some research to make sure the part you are ordering will fit your unit.
