Dometic A/C

My fan capacitor went out it was a 50/15, I only had a 50/5 so I installed that, the unit is running again but Iím afraid that I could burn a winding. I ordered a 50/15 very hard to fine but it will take 2 weeks to get, what are your thoughts on using the 50/5?

5 vs 15 -----is the electrical current it can store

If the wrong run capacitor is installed, the motor will not have an even magnetic field. This will cause the rotor to hesitate at those spots that are uneven. This hesitation will cause the motor to become noisy, increase energy consumption, cause performance to drop, and cause the motor to overheat.

That 50/5 capacity will cause issues the longer you use it.....
