Hi! I saw this in another thread posted by Subduction, service manuals for certain OxyCons. factory repair manuals. Perhaps this will help: http://www.frankshospitalworkshop.co...e_manuals.html

Likely the start/run capacitor. Be aware that the capacitor can store its charge even long after the unit has been unplugged and that discharging that stored charge into yourself can be literally a fatal error (I’ve personally seen one actual fatality and one damn near, both involving fairly large capacitors, IDK how large this one is). Unless you really know what you’re doing, stay clear of the capacitor...

Excellent point, Shock_me. I used to work in maintenance and would short the terminals of a supposedly de-energized electrolytic capacitor using a screwdriver I didn't care about (and always wearing safety glasses to prevent molten metal hitting my eyes). The correct method uses a resistor instead of a potentially violent direct short.
