Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
Capacitor has to start the motor. But are you using voltmeter to see if the pressure switch is closing and sending voltage to the capacitor for start?
Picture or model number! Need to determine which is start capacitor and which is run capacitor, The start capacitor needs to be replaced.
The MFD rating should be much higher than the run capacitor. I don't find a parts list for the capacitors. If it were mine, I would take picture of capacitor wiring and make a diagram. Then take the to capacitors to electrical supply , and have them test and identify which is the run capacitor.
Or flip them over so I can see the ratings!
The motor parts are not shown, only the motor assembly.
Rating is in MFD's, not physical size. The larger rating is the start capacitor.
Yes, if capacitor was working, the motor should at least hum. No hum makes me think it is capacitor.
Thank you! Please use the 5 star rating system to close the question and get me credit!
