The capacitor is there to assist the compressor under start-up There is no switch that turns it on and off. compressor's uses a lot of power (AMPS) under start up so the capacitor (a device that that stores a charge) boosts the voltage to the compressor to assist it. in this case your compressor is 115v and your start capacitor boosts it to 125v. Sometimes if you have a bad compressor it can cause a capacitor to blow but rarely because all it does is store a charge and a bad compressor using allot of amps would drain the capacitor of its charge.

What is the capacitor rating for Gibson JS5BD - 048K?

obviously the 80 part of cap is for compressor if the motor was not changed it should still be a 5uf. new motor require different values.

I need a huizhong cbb60 120uf capcitor for clark air compressor

You can use any brand motor run capacitor for this application (metal can). Mfd rating should be within plus or minus 5 percent of what you need (about 110 to 125uf). You can also use two 60 mfd motor run capacitors. Voltage rating should the same or higher ( higher voltage rating, better quality). Capacitors fail when there are too many start cycles per hour and or low power to comperssor. Generators also tend to shorten the life of caps due to low power at start and variance of cycles. Good luck with your repair.

I have a Whisperflo Eplus 1.5HP pool pump. It has a A.O. Smith motor. the 50MFD 370VAC capacior is bad and needs to be replaced. Is the Capacitior a run capacitor or a start capacitor? Does it make a...

You didn't indicate exactly what AO Smith motor model you have, but most likely it's Capacitor start/run if it doesn't have a switch. The important thing is to replace with the same MFD as the old so you have the same starting characteristics. Here is a great link on AO Smith motors:

The fan on my outside heat pump is running slow and the compressor attempts to start but quickly stops and trips the braker.i was told that could be the capacitor. could it be?

depending on the outside temp compressor may have a hard time starting in cooler weather. I would us a hard star capacitior connected to your existing capacitior and this should take care of the hard starting problem.

Dometic Duo Therm Ac, Fan runs, Compressor cuts in and out?

your compressor is locked up. i would try replacing the round start capacitor. you need to check what the exact rating for yours is but I believe one of these two will work for ya. In the meantime do not continue to try to run it, it will kill the compressor.

53-64 mfd

45-53 mfd

My fpd1975w monitor is flickering

The Gateway FPD models develop problems after a couple or more years of use. The repairs are fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverter board in the back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be 470 and 220 mfd or 680 mfd depending on when they were made, @ 25 volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heat issues and the currents they have to filter. Replacement of the capacitors usually restores operation.

Our refrigerator/freezer will stop working (not cool or freeze) then days later will begin to work again.

If you have already tried shutting off for 24 hrs. (reset), cleaning the under-bed condenser fins (vacuum and/or compressed air) and the issue still continues, you may be lucky enough to just need a relay/overload switch; the thingy connected to the compressor, which by the way takes patience and ease in removing. However, once the plastic cover is off, simply unplug the relay switch(s) and shake it, if you hear rattling (or) smell burn, the relay is toast and thus needs replacement. Simple enough, for replacement type in the model # of the compressor: (i.e.) [[ Embraco FGS 80 with relay/overload switch ]] cost around ($30-$50)... order, replace, re-plug, and if on target, the compressor will kick in. let run for 24 hours before adding foods, and all is good. Have a nice day. ee

Possibly, you could push the hour-setting button through either the military or standard time setting, i.e., there are actually 48 "hours" you can set your watch to and you need to cycle through enough of them to reach the standard or military hour you want.
