I've had two capacitors go bad on my home AC units. The heating and air gent who diagnosed and fixed them told me that since PCBs were outlawed in the US the failure rate of capacitors has risen dramatically.
Think I'll wait awhile before chaning my system. Also had one go bad on my ceiling fan that I replaced myself.That one go pretty hot and the case swelled up and it almost melted, or at least melted enough to make it very visible.
