Thursday night it became apparent that my air conditioning was no longer working. Temperatures here in east county (of San Diego) have been in the high 90's and low 100s this week so I have been running it A LOT. I had the good luck to find a company (Fire & Ice) who actually sent someone promptly in June to replace a capacitor. It worked beautifully until now ... 2 months later. So I called them back and they actually sent someone the same day. Yep, the new capacitor was done, kaput, no longer working. The young man replaced it with another. I asked what made it fail and he said it was man made. Jim researched this and found that these are mostly from China. At least it was covered by a one year warranty so the only charge to me was inconvenience. Today promises to be much more comfortable.
