    Those capacitors are +- 20% tolerance. So 1.2uf on the 6uf meaning it could actually be as low as 4.8uf and as high as 7.2uf...

    I do this for a living so, you can use a bigger one with no problem . Capacitors just get weak with time, an the new ones are not as good as the old ones. Good luck.

    I forgot to mention the 50 is for the compressor an the 6 is for the condenser fan motor.

    Thanks again everyone. I ordered the easy one. I appreciate everyone's input. I have a degree in electronics but I've never worked in the field. School doesn't mean much compared to actual experience. Not much at all actually. I wasn't meaning to challenge or question anyone, just want to make sure I understand and get it right. I'll let you all know how it runs when I get it back together.

    My AC went out Saturday morning. Capacitor for the fan motor needed replacing and after half and hour the fan motor was starting to release that magic smoke. New fan motor and everything is cool.

    Just thought I'd let you all know, I put the new cap in and the AC is now working very well!
