No, the capacity is way too high.... get a capacitor of at least 1,5 uF or up to max 4 uF if you happen to have one lying around

You will need to have one with the same voltage...450V and it will need to be a 1.5 or 2 uF for it to work...

2 capacitors are in the condenser unit. 1 ceramic, 189-227 mfd. would that be for the compressor? the other is aluminum, 35+5 uf. would that be for the fan?

the 189-227 is a start capacitor for compressor. the dual capacitor is 5 uf for fan and 35 uf for compressor it serves as run capacitors.

First replace the cap for the compressor. then find the cap for the fan. It should be with the compressor. We have seen alot bad caps this year. Ihopes this helps.

My Goodman CKL30-L1 is turning on but the fan will not spin. Any suggestions????

access the electrical cover on the corner of the unit after disconnecting power and inspect for loose wires or bad capacitor, the capacitor has three different terminal connections on top and the top should be flat not bulged, if bulged,rounded in any way then the capacitor needs replaced. If the fan motor still does not work, then the motor will also need replaced. Note: capacitors can go bad without bulging or swelling, a meter for testing capacitors will verify uf(MFD)rating as printed on part.

The latest Jameco electronics catalog ( has a 5 uF 370 volt motor-run capacitor for $1.95. It may however, be too physically large to fit in the motor case. Hope this helps!

The capacitor for the fan will read 370uf 5 uf. The 370 is voltage at cap. My guess would be a 7.5 uf cap for your fan. If you read the cap. it will tell you size. Fan caps go between 5 and 20 uf or microfards. Easy to replace you can do it yourself. Rus

Mitsubishi Mr Slim mini split outdoor unit fan.

Check the capacitor. Rating must be within 90% of rated microfarads. If it is a dual capacitor test between C and FAN. Set your meter to read microfarads (uF).

Fan motor not I have two caps and dont know which

First pull the quick disconnect (power source). If you have a multimeter with capacitor check (uf) capabilities, look at the side of the capacitor and see what the uf rating is, (should be somthing like 3.5uf or 5.0uf or7.5uf) then stick a screwdriver between both contacts where the wires are pluged into the top of the capacitor and touch both contacts at the same time to discharge any stored electric power, then remove all the wires from the top of the capactor, switch on the multimeter and set it to the uf setting, now place one lead on one side and one on the other, if your capacitor is say a 7.5uf and the reading is 9.0uf or 6.0uf it's bad replace
the capacitor. check both of your capacitors the same way, oh mark your capacitor and the wires so you can put them back together rite. If you don't have a multimeter with capasatence checking capability take them to an appliance shop and let them do it for you.

Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch and don't know which wires go where - 3 speed fan switch, 4 wire unit.

The pull switch has 4 wires, L, 1, 2, 3.
Connect ' L' to the reverse switch red wire or the wire that is free.
Connect ' 3 ' to the main black ( hot ) wire entering the fan.
Connect ' 1 ' to the capacitor's lowest uF eg. ( 1.5 uF )
Connect ' 2 ' to the capacitor's next uF eg. ( 3 uF )
the Capaciotr also has to be connected to the neutral wire entering the fan, usually black attached to another color wire. If you have a VOM tester, veryfy that it is a neutral wire.
