Capacitor application on submersible pump

Postby valley ranch » Sun Jul 28, 2013 10:50 pm

Greetings, Just joined, first post.

Capacitor blew on submersible well pump. Corrected the reason for capacitor failure. [ cycling ]

The pump is a 3/4 hp, ordered a capacitor and installed it. The pump is working fine.

Question: The new motor starting capacitor rating is 88-108 MFD, the capacitor that was in the control box rating was 86-103 UF.

I know in the event of cycling the capacitor is intended to blow instead overheating the motor.

I don't know how sensitive the ratings are, are these ratings close enough that the motor will have that protection?

I noticed the difference when installing.

Thankyou Richard
