If it hasn't been completely distroyed, it says it right on the capacitor .
Do you happen to have a list of what capacitor goes to what motor? Are they not standard to their motor?
There are a number of different motors and each may have a specific capacitor for it. The best way to identify the correct capacitor is to take the information right off of the capacitor.
We just released a video this week on identifying and searching for capacitors on our site. We hope this video along with the information that Alan has provided will help you out.
I saw the vid, but was hoping that there would be a list of capacitors used for specific motors. I have customers calling and asking, and the ease of a list would halp. If there isn't one, then it is what it is:-(
I greatly appreciate your knowledge!
Question: how were you able to find the capacitor used for the northstar when the capacitor was unreadable?
Thanks Yardslave that is good to know!
Hello PoolNut - We were able to pull a 1.5HP full rated Hayward Northstar motor and inspect the specifications on the capacitor. That is how we matched it up with a replacement.
thank you for easing my mind! lol! I appreciate your assistance and time!
You're welcome PoolNut. Let us know if you need any help in the future.
I am looking for the correct capacitor for this motor - CAT B2853, part# 0-F56AA37A01-04 1 HP motor. Can you help?
I am looking for this capacitor. Pentair superflo 1hp motor#196238
I am trying to determine the correct capacitor for C55 cxkmb-5012 made by US motors. It is a 1081 pump.
Thanks for any assistance. I may have to replace motor, but hums now, so ruling things out.
