Hello All, Model RAKA-018JAZ. The downstairs original contactor unit is burnt and looks like it needs replacing. We had a storm come through and the power pulsed about three times over 30 seconds. So maybe the time delay also.
Just found out my AC guy retired who replace the Contactor on my AC unit for upstairs. It looks like he bypassed the time delay... And used a 2 pole "Packard C220A" Can only find "Packard C230A" is that Okay???
I've attached two pictures, old and newer contactor. If it was a one for one I would not hesitate to replace but the newer replacement Contactors look to be wired different.

Thank you!

Michael
