2. Know the motor speed.
3. Determine of the original motor is Original Equipment or Aftermarket Replacement. – If the original capacitor is more than 50 percent larger than the suggested new capacitor, select the next size motor. A new capacitor rated per manufacturer’s specifications should always be installed.
