The start capacitor in a motor control box is considered a consumable part. Capacitors tend to lose capacitance over time and/or use, and need to be replaced when the capacitance drops 10% below the described range or electrolyte leaking is observed.
An exact replacement - works well - delivered quickly and a lot cheaper than buying local. I will be back.
There must have been a short or something - died on the first attempt. As well, even though there's a Canadian branch for this company, it was sent via BC to us in Quebec, so took quite a while to arrive. With the exchange, it was a $50 mistake for us. Tuhorse support wrote: Sorry to hear that the capacitor did not fix the problem. Burning out a new capacitor usually is because a short circuit other than the capacitor itself. In this incident, the pump wire or the motor might have a short. If the overload protector(reset button) is bad or the "reset" button was pushed while the power is on, high amps will go through the capacitor to cause it softly exploded. Note to buyers: The "Reset" in the control boxes of Franklin Electric, Goulds or almost all other brands are actually a overload protector (a recoverable fuse). Do not force it to reset while the power is on. Let it freely trips should a short circuit cause high current. Reset it only when the power is off. If it trips in several tests, you should resolve the problem causing the "reset" to trip to avoid burning out the capacitor and other damages.
perfect, original part.
I just bought a new house and it had a well. My father-in-law (an old pump and well guy) looked at the pump house and checked the pump control just to see what was inside. He noticed that the capacitor seemed to be leaking a bit of fluid - he told me this indicates that the cap is old and may fail. Needless to say, I started looking for one and found the proper cap with Tuhorse. They were easy to order from and fast to ship. The part arrived and I got it installed with no issue. I have since purchased a 2nd one, just to have a spare. You never really worry about the well and pump until you can't get any water and that's just a bit too late...
Great service and correct part. Saved me from buying complete well control. Thank you.
