The cap is located on the outside unit. Troubleshooting is problematic unless you have the
correct meter however the caps are fairly inexpensive (20-40 bucks) and not too difficult to

I would say a starter cap, but I believe the furnace/air handler fan would run regardless of a
cap failure. I just had one of these failures this year.Another question is the "light switch"

I'm not sure I would putty anything but nail/knot holes. The old boards will flex up and down

I had a sewer line replaced a while back and the trench was 9 feet deep at one end and the
plumber/excavator NEVER shored the walls. I asked if that wasn't a bad idea and he said it
wasn't required. I...
