- Okay, good suggestions - heat and capacitor problems. I'll look into
those. I can see a discolored heated area on a circuit board in the
converter where two resistors are located. However, the resistors look
okay (not discolored, etc.) and the only way I know to check them is
to un-solder them and check the resitance. I'll look for the
capacitors and see how they look. I don't know how to check
capacitors, but one that failed on my air conditioner was quite
discolored at the connections due to the heat. I'll check behind the
panel as suggested.
- Good electrics price, Bill. My recent bill was $46.95 for 260 KWH. So,
that makes my amp draw $1.95 per day. It seems from the calculations
that the continuous amp draw was a bit less than 3 3/4 amps
continuous, but only a little bit.
