I need a ceiling fan capacitor but when I search I can't find the same specs. I have E185116 and I believe its C61. It is a 5 wire switch with 4.5/6/5 and the 4.5 is 300V and the others 250V.

two different items one is a switch and you are looking for a capacitor ( two wires )
if it is a capacitor that you want all you will need is the voltage and the uf or mf reading
one is the voltage that it can operate at and the other is the capacitance value of the capacitor for the motor
so for example--- the printing will read like 300 volts --- 15uf
and you will need around the same size to fit in place of the other one
e-bay will sell them

I have a 166-0138 capacitor which is obsolete what can I replace it with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

Need a part cb 6uf 5% 350 V.A.C made by HDC

You need a 6 microfarad capacitor at 5% tolerance rated for 350
volts alternating current, anyways , that what you just wrote to me.

6uf 5%350vac Try or type in HDC
maybe you find out what HDC is. My guess is they are the manufacturer of the capacator. It is round with two leads comming out of it, right. This is not something normally seen on a fan, unelse it is a run or start capacitor used on a high horsepower industerial fan.

try for industrial fan parts

if you can make do with a garden variety generic capacitor
your local radio shack should have a 6mfc @350vac with 5% tollerance. tolerance means that the 6 mfd capacitor can vary by 5%,
either up or down and still be acceptable.

I have a floor fan with a bad capacitor. its a 1.5uF +-5% 450V. can i replace capacitor with a 33 uF 250 ~ 275 V capacitor ? or with some other one that i got ?

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 can use any capacitor of value about 3.3mF to about 6.8mF with an AC voltage rating of about 230 to 250 volts.
These are the bipolar type capacitors and is generrally available at all electrical or electronic spare parts shops.
Hope this helps.

Fan stopped working

The problem is NOT the motor. This is the most stereotypical, quintessential, textbook case of capacitor failure. The capacitor is a small rectangular black box located in the fan's switch housing (there may be one, two, or three capacitors) with colored wires coming out. The capacitor regulates voltages, and gives the fan enough torque to start, then keep running at the appropriate speed.

Capacitors are inexpensive to replace. Some replacements are available at your local Home Depot or Lowes; if they don't have the right one, go to Radio Shack. IT IS IMPERATIVE that the replacement capacitor you buy has the EXACT same values -- same voltage, and same microfarad rating (written as a number followed by the letters MFD, or the micro-sign and the letter F: µF). So, for example, it might say "277v 2.5µF" or "277v 2.5 MFD" -- and the replacement capacitor must have the exact same values. It must also have the same number of wires coming out of the top. However many capacitors your fan has, that is the number you need to replace, since you don't know which one is blown.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
