Had a checkup on my AC/ furnace a couple weeks ago. The technician said the capacitor leaking oil and not pulling enough amps. He recommended me getting a whole new system. (My house was built 6 yrs ago.)
I said no I cannot afford, he replaced the capacitor. I asked so you tested and the amps are all good now. He responds that he did not test anything after he replaced it. That struck me as odd but what do I know I'm just a woman.
Since replacement, the lights dim when unit kicks on, which it has always done that, no worry. While unit is running the lights will dim several more times. Each time they dim there is an audible pause in the operation of the unit. Very very short pause like of about a second. This worries me. I would be very appreciative of what could be the issue and what I should check on my unit.
