Looks like you gave a part number instead of a model number.
Below is what comes up when I search the number.
A model number may be more useful because what is required to help is the unit's wiring diagram
Part number: AP4565263
Part number: AP4565263


You cannot do a definitive test of the capacitor unless you have a capacitor tester. They may check OK for not being open or a dead short with a multimeter but then will fail when the actual working voltage is applied to them.

the usual routine is to check that the compressor is getting the correct voltage.
Then check that the compressor windings measure OK and are not grounded. This also is not a definitive test as the compressor may have internal mechanical problems or winding to winding shorts.
Check the compressor start device angain this can be an iffy test.
If all else looks OK then try replacing the capacitor.
