I got the first of the two capacitors that I ordered....the start capacitor. I went to install it yesterday and I noticed it's a bit smaller than the old one so I wanted to make sure I have the right one. The part number is supposed to be PTMJ189 but on the part itself it says PMJ189. Also, in the link to this start capacitor earlier in this thread I looked at the picture and it shows the following specs:
220-250VAC 60/50HZ 189-227MFD
On the part I was shipped it has the following:
110-125VAC 60/50HZ 189-227MFD
The VAC numbers are very different and the model number is different too....so I'm just making sure!
For installation, I assume the start capacitor is mounted on top of the motor and that I just have to remove it's enclusure for the installation. It's quick to get to the capacitor. And the running capacitor is inside the motor? The connections on the old start capacitor are a bit different different than the new one. There are no plus/minus indicators on the part to know exactly how the wires should be attached. I'm guessing that's because it doesn't matter which wire goes to which lead? Just making sure.
Let me know if I have the correct part. Just making doubly sure!
