Hello! I just recently picked up a 80 gallon 6.5 hp devilbliss unit (model PRLK6580V2). It needs some TLC and I have some gaskets and parts on the way, but the big hurdle I am having is that the motor is missing one of the capacitors.


I have attached the motor nameplate for reference. I cannot find a schematic or parts list for the motor itself, so I don't know how to even go about finding a replacement capacitor.

So, I am looking for a replacement capacitor (or at least specs to find a replacement) and the wiring description or diagram.

Thanks!

Judging by the wires sticking out, that was likely the start cap.

I think your best bet is to take it to a motor shop and see if they can help (likely).

If you don't have such a place nearby, then I'd try the portal at

and see if they are helpful.

Good luck, and please let us know what happens.
