So a fuse(3) on my control board blew at the same time my ac capacitor did. I replaced the capacitor with the exact one that was on the old unit and when replacing the fuse noticed a stray red wire... This wire and the white one next to it goes all the way to my ac. When I stripped the wire back a bit and connected it to R (you can see in this picture)
the ac finally turned on and everything seemed to run fine until I noticed the fan on the outside unit was never turning off. At first I thought stuck contoller but now I'm wondering if I messed up a wire choice?
