The common terminal has burnt off of my dads a/c condenser unit.After cleaning it up i have found that this terminal has started to melt and is not allowing a good tight connection.i know from past experience that that im going to have the same problem next year if not sooner and eventually it will be junk if left like this.Any one got any ideas for getting a better connection? Thanks

possibly a larger termination to act as it's own heat sink?
