What would you like to do?

Can a starting capacitor lower a fridge starting draw from 2400 watts to 800 or less without damaging the motor and how can the size of capacitor needed be determined?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

could be If you lower the start cap size it may take milliseconds longer to start so it will still use the approximate same amt of power. Size? search for "appliance repair parts" enter your model number and you may be able to locate the value of the start cap. go from there.

3 types of capacitor start motor?

Types of Motors   There are different types of Capacitor-start motors designed and used in various fields. They are as follows:   Single-voltage, externally reversible t

What do start capacitors do in the motor circuit?

When a capacitor is so introduced, the voltage lags the current by some phase angle. In these motors, the necessary phase difference between the Is and Im is obtained by intro

Why the capacitor motor will not develop any starting torque without capacitor?

The start winding needs a capacitor in series with it in order to produce a phase shifted magnetic field that will develop the torque necessary to bring the rotor up to operat

How can a capacitor start motor be reversed?

Unless the motor is designed to be reversed, perhaps by changing some of the wiring, a capacitor start motor cannot be reversed. Consult the nameplate for specifics.

Capacitor used in motor for starting torque?

A capacitor builds and holds a charge until required. Larger motors require a temporary boost in electrical power in the start-up phase in order to overcome the inertia of a m

What size start capacitor?

Capacitors come in various sizes, your question is to non specific (capacitor for WHAT) for a detailed answer.

What is the reason for a start capacitor on a motor?

In order for an induction motor to run, a rotating magnetic field must be established. This requires the field windings to be supplied by currents that are out of phase with e

What size motor start capacitor is required for a 0.6 hp electric motor?

As an electrician I can give you a vague answer with the information given.  You need more specifics to do the calculations for the load amps and the supply voltage. The part
