    Loud pop and black smoke, is my capacitor fried?
    I was outside this everning and I heard a loud pop coming from somewhere within the vicinity of the out door units. As I approached them, I noticed black smoke coming from the bigger one. I ran in the house and shut the power off to the out door unit and indoor handler.

    Is capacitor fried, or something worst?
