Question about Coleman Powermate 27 Gallon Air Compressor
To be sure you don't get 'bit' by the capacitor, remove the power from the circuit and expose the capacitor (s) connections then short across them with an insulated screwdriver to ensure that they are discharged. Some electrical 'purists' that know all there is to know about electricity say you should NEVER short a capacitor....but that's a bunch of baloney. Who cares if you shorten its life expectancy a little bit. Its better than shocking the fire outta yourself. Some capacitors leak down quite quickly but you never know for sure without shorting across the terminals.
The accepted norm on capacitor start motors is to use a capacitor with NO MORE than 10% variance above or below the original capacitors rating. Try wwwgraingers.com for replacement capacitors or ereplacements.com as another choice. Or possibly McMaster-Carr.
