What causes a run capacitor to go bad?

A faulty relay switch can also cause the capacitor to overheat, leaving it too long in the circuit. The lightning can damage a capacitor, compressor, ventilation engine or unit cables. Even a low-power wave can damage or destroy the capacitor, which can cause an overload of the compressor and resulting failure.
