capacitors either work or they don't work
being electronic and subject to surges and spikes they can last many years or just months
there are various qualities of capacitors but even that is no guarantee of long life
you can check if the capacitor is correct by getting oll of the details off the plate on the motor( volts, current , rpms , hertz-phase , cycles etc and with that information take the failed capacitor to an electric motor repair shop and they will know if it was correct or not
the requirements are correct voltage and mica/peka farads required to start/run the motor
there is a permissible range but outside that range , the capacitor is wrong
old motor has data needed for replacement. hp, sf ,rotation ,rpm, volts and amps.plus capacitor size required. the extra wire can be for a capacitor conection usaly brown in color and if you look at the label it will tell you how to eliminate the need for this wire.
I apologize for not getting back to you sooner on this one, to be honest, im not terribly familiar with replacing capacitors on game gears, however that would appear to be the issue, someone else might be better suited to help with the technicalities on that one. Sounds like Ironfist109 knows what he's talking about. Again, sorry I wasnt any more help =\
There shopuld be a diagram on the nameplate of the motor, or on the cover for the wiring compartment, or there is some stamped indication at the wiring lugs that tell you where to put your feed and what position the internal wires are to be in or the jumper .. for 110 volts or 220 volts.
If there is a capacitor on it, you could replace that. If there is no capacitor the starting switch is probably broken. If you are not used to working with electricity, either have someone qualified work on it or...BE CAREFUL!..God luck...Lee
