Received contactors with no problems. These can cost you $50 or more if you can find them at your local a/c shop. I bought 3 because my a/c (house) is 5 years old, and I do not wait for total faillure to replace normal wear parts like this. I installed one and it works very well.

After a year, my Westinghouse outdoor AC condenser would not start for the new season. Actually I had this issue during the first couple of months of usage Typically, Westinghouse is not a US product anymore going years back. That said, I had put up with this after about 5 years of usage. I would have to go out and manually push on the contactor magnet to free it from sticking to get it going. Then for the most part it would continue to work..

I got smart one day and decided to consider a replacement. I purchased this contactor to replace the original. It has a higher rating and fits right in the same place without modification. The cover on top is a nice part where the old one did not have. It works solid and effectively. This cured my sticky contactor problem and I see it as a quality replacement to the OEM version.

Instead of using screw heads that securely hold a spade lug from the wires like the original equipment contactor, this one requires you you remove the spade lugs, shove the wires into a slot, then compress the wire in the slot with the tip of a screw. This results in a poor connection, high resistance, excessive heat, and a burned out contactor.

So after 12 years, the original contactor on my AC unit gave up. I went outside to inspect it because my AC was not cooling. After a few days it was cooling but the compressor was frozen. So I opened the unit to inspect it, and the contactor was a little burned. The unit stayed in the ON position even though the Thermostat was off. After replacing the contactor, the unit seemed to work fine.

It has only been a week but seems to be working fine. I will buy an extra one just in case the contactor messes up again. Do yourself a favor and but a spare contactor and capacitor just in case. Be sure to verify what the Voltage, Amps, and Coil Voltage for your contactor. And for the capacitor you need your VAC and UFs. If you have any questions, Im sure any reviewers of this product are willing to help

Old Square-D contactor went out in a blaze of glory, popped this in in 5 minutes and had the AC back on quickly. So I just ordered another one to keep in my spares so I can swap it out for me or a neighbor in a pinch. Because it's a dual pole contactor it will work for both single and dual pole replacements. Fits pretty much every household HVAC system ever.

Even with overnight shipping this was here faster and cheaper than having to drive around town and convince a "pro-only" supply house to sell you a stupid contactor for $35+.

Pro hint: Take many up-close pics of the old unit with your phone before you take it apart in case you forget which wire goes where.

With a basic understanding of electronics and some DIY knowhow, you can save hundreds and fix your AC yourself. This contactor was a simple 5 minute install and worked perfectly. It has more than enough connections for all the variations that your compressor could toss at it. It has a very low 24 volt load, and holds an 80 amp load without getting hot.

I maintain my house, a rental property and my father in laws house, and here in sunny Arizona, when the AC fails you need to get it fixed pronto. These little guys are cheap, near universal and are workhorses I bought a couple of spares, since the AC always breaks on the weekend, and gettin contactors locally always involves coughing up a lung, and forking over at least $60.

These are overkill fer most residential units, but in my experience, 115 degrees outside means 130 on the roof, and 150 in the electrical enclosure on the unit. That means derating the contactor by at least 20-30%
