Q:What is a dual run capacitor?
A:Dual run capacitors are 2 run capacitors in one case. They have nothing else that makes them electrically special. They generally have connections marked "C" for "common", "H" or "Herm" for "Hermetic Compressor" and "F" for "Fan." They will also have 2 different capacitor ratings for the 2 different parts. You might see 40+5 MFD, meaning that one side is 40 microfarads (measurement of capacitance) and the other side is 5 microfarads. The smaller value will always be connected to the fan. The larger connection will always be connected to the compressor.
