    Forum Sponsor
    In this hot weather our central AC stopped working. Turns out the capacitor that starts the motor is dead. Where do you get one? I can see on amazon/ebay but need one quick because the heat is killing us. please help.

    checked homedepot and crappy tire but they don't carry them.
    The one with the money is the one with the power.

    Talk to local HVAC installers. I had the same problem a couple years ago, and Reliable Mechanical Services fixed mine.

    most require that you have a TSSA certification

    Magneto Electric Service.

    Bring in the old one and they will match it for you.
    They deal with motors, no TSSA issues. And they will serve retail consumers.

    I will second Southern Supplies - they've helped me out many times over the years with parts for DIY repairs, most recently a thermocouple for my furnace pilot light. Would have cost me $300-$400 for the repair to have someone else fix it for me, but instead cost me $19 for the thermocouple from Southern.
