Condenser fan motor and Run cap do not match

860 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  JJboy
My condenser motor call for 5uF 370V run cap but the (dual)run cap is actually a 50+5uF 440V. I am only looking because the fan recently stopped spinning. All Voltages appear to be nominal. The Relay operates when the thermostat is switched and I see no obvious damage to fan or wires. I cleaned the contacts anyways but no luck. I am going to replace the cap for that reason alone but should I get one that matches the motor or one that matches the old part?

It's ok. No problem to use dual capacitor also with higher voltage.
