The tech arrived late this afternoon and it seems this system has two capacitors.. it appears the "hard start" capacitor had been leaking and likely the cause. Everything else checks OK... it hasn't been running long and I'll know more tomorrow when it's really needed
(we live in Houston)
The system now is an 8 year old SEER 12 and I was told the compressor should last another 5 years or so.
Thanks for the help...
