Question about Jet Plumbing

Open Question

Have what I believe to be a 1 HP shur dri pump motor with a blown run capacitor. Cannot find the 45 uF 370 volt 1 3/4'' X 4'' capacitor anywhere. Most 45 uF capacitors are 2'' or larger or longer than 4 1/2''. TSC handles the pump & motor. Where can I get the capacitor?

SOURCE: Start Capacitor wiring diagram needed

When hooking up capacitor on a pump it doesnt really matter which way the wires go. The capacitor is set up in such a way the it supplys power wherever the wires are hooked up. I hope this helps

SOURCE: Motor Hums,No Run

Inside the back case on the motor you'll see a white piece with two copper colored arms that have two silver points that almost touch. If these are rusty I've found that the motor won't turn over
. A quick fix is to take some 600+ grit Aluiminum oxide sandpaper and give each of those contact points a brisk sanding to remove any oxidation. This will help the points make a positive contact . Make sure while very obvious that the motor is unplugged first.

SOURCE: Pump will not come up to pressure and turn off!

With no leaks in line and assuming the jet is not embedded in debris at bottom of well, try priming the pump again and getting all the air out.

SOURCE: Motor has started t0 smoke and trips circuit breaker

On the motors I deal with there is a series of numbers that identify the shaft size, hp and all other requirements. I would try and contact a local Grainger and see if they can help, if not try in the yellow pages for a motor repair shop in your area and sometimes they can get you one. Good luck

SOURCE: 1/3 hp drill press motor runs hot and very slow.

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.

What is the fan motor capacitor rating for a RUDD model UACC-030JAS

For a fan motor capacitor we need to know what motor is on it. The units model will not help in this case. On the side of the out door units fan motor will be a sticker/tag with a lot of info. HP, volts,rpm.... And somewhere on that tag should be a "cap 5 uf" 7.5uf....
Most likely a 5 or 7.5. if and 370v or 440v rated. Either one is fine when it comes to the 370/440 value.

I have a RUUD Model UGPH10EBRJR. the compositor near the blower motor in the ****** is bubbling out some kind of jell substance. Do I need to change it and do I call it hte run or start compositor. wh

Hi Jerry, yes, whenever you see either end of a capacitor bulging and or leaking fluid, the capacitor is bad and needs to be replaced. It may still be operating the motor ok, but it will eventually fail and the fluid is also highly corrosive. Simply match up the proper voltage and uf to get the proper replacement. Example: 5uf 370 volt or 7.5uf 370 volt or 10uf 440 volt. The uf stands for microfarads. Hope this helps!

Rheem condenser fan motor

"the guy" added another start capacitor because the motor installed is actually better than spec. Your unit calls for 1/5 HP, 1050 RPM motor. The installed device is 25 rpm faster, and 1/4 HP.

The Rheem/Weather King/Corsaire/RUUD part number is 51-23055-11 (replaces many other Rheem/Corsaire/Weather King/RUUD Part #s including 51-21855-01)! It takes a 3 uf Capacitor rated at 370 volts. This Motor mouts with screws in the SIDE, instead of mounting studs coming out the back!!

Normal price for a generic motor w/ cap will be $125 or so, OEM part will be closer to 200. This is without the fan blade. Make sure you get the correct side mount studs.

This vintage unit is rated at only 10 SEER and is less energy efficient than a modern window air conditioner. Its days are numbered, and you are paying at least double every time it runs. Before you sink much money into this unit, please consider replacing it before it has a heart attack. Replacing it during the off season is cheaper anyway.

Please mark my answer down as helpful.

How can you tell if the capacitor is not dead?30/4mfd/370 for air conditionner york

Usually you just change them out. They are not on motors that have other parts the fail in most cases. They are not that expensive either. But if you want to test one, the cost of the meter is more than the part.

I installed a shur-dri 4"

If this is a 220 volt pump then it needs to have 2 hot wires,so it would be connected to 2 15 amp breakers.The ground shold run from the pump back to the fuse panel box ground bar.

If this is a 115 volt pump it should be connected to one hot, one nutral, and one ground.

Possible a hot wire is making contact with water and tripping breaker.Or the pump motor is going to ground which means its no good.

1 year old samsung 50b550 1080p 50inch plasma...working fine one minute then screen went black, audio is ok. menus do not come up either. audio changes with channels ok. Have back off, capacitors look ok,...

Samsung has three board. The power board is the one on the right and is where the 120 volts plugin. There should be only one capacitor rated at 100 uf at 450 volts. Measure this voltage - should be 390 volts. If not, change this capacitor to 350 uf with a rating of at least 400 volts (to 450 volts). I was lucky to have a old microwave and a old power supply laying around the house. I have a 120 uf and 220 uf both rated at 400 volts, and when I connected them in parallel (370 uf) and changed out the old one. The TV works fine now.

What is the value of the dual run capacitor

Hi, depending on the size like a 5ufx35 or 40 uf x either 370 volts or 440 volts cost around $14.00 give or take. The last I bought at Grangers supply, a 5uf 370 volt x 40 uf was exactly $ 14.80. Not that expensive. They go up the higher the volts as 440 and mirofarads.
