I have a 166-0138 capacitor which is obsolete what can I replace it with


166-0138 is a fasco motor number not a capacitor. if you need a capacitor they are typical items that are rated in voltage and micro farads. you can replace the capacitor with one of the same rating from a hvac supply house.

Where. Is the capacitors


the capacitors are connected to the electric motors and compressor
they will be small units in the room unit and large unit on the outside unit

I have a Rheem classic xi model RPLA-024JAZ and need a capacitor and contactor (1 pole 208/230v.) How can I find the right model numbers to buy?


JUST ORDER A ONE POLE 35 AMP CONTACTOR THAT WILL DO IT FOR YOU THE CAPACITOR YOU NEED IS WRITTEN ON THE CAPACITOR FOR EXAMPLE 35+5 THE 35 IS FOR THE COMPRESSOR AND THE 5 IS FOR THE FAN IT WILL BE WRITTEN IN MICRO FARADS,

The fan motor is very hot and does not turn


Ohm the motor, if it's ok then replace the run capacitor with one of the same micro farad value. Make sure you short the capacitor terminals with an insulated tool before removing the wires. It still holds a charge even when deenergize

Motor start capacity tor for kitchenaid


Depending on the make and model of your appiance and the type of motor used the capacitor would vary in shape and size. Usually cylindrical or square. Either plastic or aluminium casing. It will be connected across the motor windings. Look for a rated value printed on it in micro-farads.(uf) and a voltage.

Could be your capacitor in the outside unit. If you have the right tools and are experienced working with high voltages then you can test to see if that is the problem.

***CAUTION***

Anytime you are working on or around electricity you run the risk of shock and or death. If you are not competent working with high voltage and using electrical test equipment, please consider consulting an expert before you open an electrical panel or appliance. You assume any and all liability by continuing with this diagnoses process.


***WARNING***

Capacitors hold a large electrical charge even after power has been removed from them and will discharge upon contact with your skin. This is enough to stop your heart and cause death. If you are not confident in your abilities to work with these devices then please leave any testing or repairs to a professional.


The capacitor is inside the outside unit and you have to remove the cover to see the inside of the electrical compartment. You will need to discharge the capacitor before you start working around it. To do this take a screwdriver or other long metal tool with an insulated handle and cross the three terminals on the capacitor to ground. You then remove the wires to the capacitor terminals, taking note of which wire goes to which terminal.


Capacitors are rated in Micro Farads (marked by a µF symbol) and a dual capacitor, shown in the image below, will have two ratings listed like this "35/5µF" or something very similar. You must have a multimeter that reads micro farads " µF " to check a capacitor.


You do that by placing one probe on the C or COM terminal and the other probe on the FAN terminal and it should read the small number of the rating, for example if your capacitor is rated like this: 30/7.5µF then the fan rating will be the smaller of the two numbers. In this case the 7.5µF (seven and a half Micro Farads). The HERM terminal is the one for the compressor and will be rated the higher of the two numbers, I.E. the 30µF on the capacitor. Check them both and of they are more than 6% lower than they are supposed to be then the capacitor is weak and needs replaced. If you read 0 (zero) then the capacitor is bad and needs replaced.

It is two years old and the compressor will not come on.


It could be a bad capacitor or thermostat. If it is electronically controlled then the control board could also be bad not letting the compressor run. Also check that you are getting proper power to the outlet for the A/C. The model number you list is for a 115 volt unit so if you have any power at all then it should be ok but if you have a multimeter then check it anyway.

*CAUTION*
Capacitors hold a large electrical charge and will discharge upon contact with your skin. This is enough to stop your heart and cause death. If you are not confident of your abilities around these devices then please leave any test or repairs to a professional.


The capacitor is onside the unit and you have to pull the unit out of the window and remove the cover to see the inside. You will have to discharge the capacitor before you start working around it. To do this take a screwdriver or other long metal tool with an insulated grip and cross the three terminals on the capacitor to ground. You then remove the wires to the capacitor terminals, taking note of which wire goes to which terminal.

Capacitors are rated in Micro Farads (marked by a μF symbol) and a dual capacitor, shown in the image, will have two ratings listed like this "35/5μF" or something very similar. You must have a multimeter that reads micro farads to check a capacitor.

You do that by placing one probe on the C or COM terminal and the other probe on the FAN terminal and it should read the small number of the rating, for example if your capacitor is rated like this: 30/7.5μF then the fan rating will be the smaller of the two numbers.

Check them both and of they are more than 6% lower than they are supposed to be then the capacitor is weak and needs replaced. If you read 0 (zero) then the cap is bad and needs replaced.

A new one should run you around $15 to $25 and you will need the old one to match up. This is the cheapest repair to make but may not solve your problem, if it does not then replace the whole unit as the price for any other part will cost as much if not more than a new a/c.

Need to know correct replacement part for dual capacitor


You can use a universal dual capacitor it doesnt have to look the same just match the numbers it will probably say 30uf/5uf or what ever the number is. If this help please rate me and do a testimonial

I have a busted 0.77mfd capacitor in my samsung microwave oven. there is only 1 capacitor available in town here in our place. its a 0.9mfd capacitor. is it ok to use this rating? if not, please help me...


If the 0.77 micro-farad cap has a tolerance of +/- 20%, then you're ok. But a tolerance of
+/- 10%, +/- 5%, or +/- 1% would exclude the 0.9 micro-farad capacitor as a replacement.
The tolerance colors that qualify are black and gray, see the capacitor color code reference at:

Blown capacitors


There's hundreds of capacitors in an amp... The value should be printed right on them. It will have a Farad rating (F) or usually MICRO farad (uF) and a voltage rating (V). Looks like "16V 47uF"... Be aware that there's likely to be more problems than just the caps...
