Tries to start but hangs up, fails and retries. I've swapped cap with one I believe to be good. Still hangs up. I changed the piece up on top of the compressor that has 2 black wires running to it surrounded by what looks like a spring (forget what it's called) with one from a working ac and still the same. Maybe it's not the correct type. Idk. I'm lost at this point.

Hi,

I've swapped cap with one I believe to be good. Still hangs up. I changed the piece up on top of the compressor that has 2 black wires running to it surrounded by what looks like a spring (forget what it's called) with one from a working ac and still the same.

Bad compressor then.

Sounds like something broke inside the compressor :(

Nah, got plenty at this point. Parted it out. I have 4 in operation and 2 put up for emergencies. One of which I replaced the fan blades today 🙂
