Capacitors and running on Canadian tire compressor
Hi I have a 5 gallon stacked compressor from Canadian tire. It would not start so I took the cover off and checked the capacitor. The Capacitor is dead this I know for sure.
With the dead capacitor in the compressor if I turn the fan by hand the motor will start and come up to speed quite easily. When it builds about 20lbs of pressure in the tank the motor slows and stops. Will changing the capacitor fix this problem or does the capacitor only help the motor start? Thanks for your help.
