I am looking for the size of a capicator that fits on the fan of my Saxon Woodheater.The old one is melted and any numbers gone.Saxon Woodheaters has been taken over by BBQs Galore. I have spoken to these guys but unfortunetly they now use a different set up in the newer ones and can not help.HELP

Turn the power off at the breaker panel and check for voltage present with a meter. write down what wires are hooked to H C and F then hook up the new one EXACTLY like the old. If you do not you can burn the winding on the condenser fan motor and this is more expensive than a capacitor.
if the fan run and does not freeze, possible compressor or compressor start kit. Start kits that a beating in stormy weather. Start kits consist of a relay, capicator and overload sensor. These 3 parts can be ordered seperately or a generic start kit with all the of these made in one. if the compressor is bad on a 10 year old freezer you might want to look at a new freezer
You almost have it Look closer at the run capacitor. It has Herm, this is for the compressor, Com or C and F or Fan.
1 of your power wires is the fan speed so connect them accordingly usually black is hi, blue med, & red is low. You are "feeding" voltage to the selector switch on 1 side and coming out to the fan motor speeds.
Next you have a "Common" wire on your fan motor (this means its Common to all the other connections inside the fan motor to me. It is usually white. Connect this to the other line of power usually the Com on the capacitor unless it connects to a strip on the selector switch. But 1 of these 2 places will be the other side of your Power when plugged in. Lastly the brown it is usually the fan capicator only wire and it will connect to the fan "F" terminal on the capicator this terminal will not have any other wires connected to it.
This should make you a happy camper. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.
The size is generally on the case of the capicator and is writtten in mfd or a kind of ufd or uf (the U stands for micro) F and FD = farads. The voltage rating is important but not nearly as mich as MFD. The voltage rating is how much voltage the capicator can stand before becoming critical. This capicator is usually mounted on the exterior of the motor.
HOPE THIS HELPS PLEASE RATE ME ACCORDINGLY AND GOOD LUCK.
I need more information. And if you have worked on AC's before? Thes main things to check I believ is the fan motor I just wrote out a long explanation as to what to check and look for and I think it got lost. SO I believe your hearign the compressor continue to run even when the fan stops.
Eventually the compressor over heats and stops. this is when nothig runs. Here is where I believe te indoor coil has been covered with Ice-frost and when the compressor stops the ICE FROST melts and you get water on your floor.
The motor could be bad or the run capicator I also believe your indoor coil (and most likely the outdoor one too) is plugged up or dirty. A dirty outdoor coil is the most often cause of motor over heating and or capicator failure. If you can look through the fins of the outdoor and indoor coil ALL OVER then they are clean. Any area stopped up over 20% and you need to wash them out.
Take your capicator out and have it checke by someone with a capicator checker. They will most likely have a replacement if needed. Check the "STIFFNESS" of the motor bearings. If you spin it and it turns over 2 or 3 times or more the bearings are probably ok. If it has oil holes add about 20 to 40 drops lite machine oil to the bearings. If they are sealed... Start looking for a repairman or take care if your goin to change it yourself. Too many factors to go into here about changing a motor. And some may or maynot apply.
Hope this helps you if I need to more clear get back to me and well discuss it more. GOOD LUCK!
Sounds like someone has replaced the origional split cap (fan,herm,common..not compressor) with two seperate units. The voltage doesnt really matter its the MFD rating that will need to be the same. The larger #mfd capacitor will be the compressor's and the smaller the fan motors' capacitor. Since it does have two seperate caps than the liklihood that they are your problem is slim i would look elsewhere.
