UP does it have 3 or 3 terminals on the cap? the start winding is usually yellow.

Some caps have a terminal for "fan" also. usually brown.



Please check inside the compressor terminal cover. the start wire often burns off the fusite pin. If you are very luck it did not short out the run winding giving you a bad compressor.

If the cap is swelled = bad loosely connected terminal on the cap = bad also.
How do you test a capacitor using a multimeter

Oh now you tell us! LOL

Anyway.. the wiring is something like this for 120 volt.



Just wish you would give up photos and even actual model number! Most have a wiring diagram somewhere....

If I'm not mistaken the start winding can be with a cap, cap and relay or solid state type. (they use a ceramic resistor in the top of the cap)

cap is shot. it's swelled at the top. get one see if that works. If when you turn it on and it hums.. then clicks, try one of these
It goes on S & R
Good luck!
