The Capacitor is the battery for your pool motor. Provides the energy needed while starting, to reach 3450 rpm quickly.
Pool Motor Repair Tips:
- Replace your Capacitor when the shaft can be spun freely with a wrench or by hand, and when
powering the motor, you hear a 'buzz' or a 'hum' from the motor, but no impeller movement.
- Replace your old capacitor with an exact match to the 'MFD' number on the new capacitor.
