Replacement should be simple. Just do a one for one hookup with the new part, after you unplug it first.

Look instead at the motor and drill post bearings. Remove the belt to see if the motor runs correctly with no load. If it still hums and gets hot, check that the motor itself turns freely (when off). If the motor seems to be ok, turn the driven pulley by hand--it should also turn freely. The capacitor is usually a starting assist, not running. To test, wrap a small rope several turns (when pulled must turn in the normal direction) around the small motor pulley and pull smartly while turning the motor on. If it now comes up to speed, the capacitor has lost capacitance. Electronic parts suppliers like Jameco or Mouser have such items.

I do not have a diagram for you, but depending on the motor, I can tell you a couple of things. 1. All capacitors are wired in series with the start winding. Most multi-speed motors, that require capacitors, have two brown leads, along with the motor winding leads. If this is the scenario, then just connect line power to neutral and the speed you wish to use, and connect the two brown leads, one to each side of the capacitor. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thankyou for your assistance,very helpful."
I am in the process of replacing a capacitor on a Craftsman 6 in 1/3 grinder, 2.8 amp, single phase, 110v. Not sure on the centrifugal switch. model 319.190621, ser B9530. When I took the old one out the black wire from the capacitor went to the cluster of back wires (in my case 3) in the wire nut. The blue wire from the grinder went to red wire from the capacitor in a wire nut. Hope that helps you....
Maybe you can help me... the specs on the capacitor burned off when it failed. Can you tell me what the capacitor specs are on yours?
