range of universal HVAC permanent
motor run capacitors
reduce downtime for the Service Technician.
happens if I wire the capacitor incorrectly?
Your motor requires the exact value to replace
the original capacitor. The
Motor-mate capacitor is designed to fail
safely if mis-wired with a lower
value. Depending on how low a value it is, it
can take anywhere up to three
weeks to fail. Therefore it is imperative that
you double check your wiring
before turning the electricity back on. This is
the single most common
cause of failure.
is the difference between this capacitor and other
This universal capacitor uses an easy-to-use innovative
jumpering system to produce any value required up
to 12.5mfd (mini motor-mate) and 67.5mfd (motor-mate)
in one can so you will always have the right part
does the jumpering system work?
Motor-mate has 6 terminals using the most
common values; 2.5mfd, 5mfd, 5mfd, 10mfd, 20mfd
and 25mfd, with a common black terminal. Simply
check the capacitance required and link together
the terminals needed to make up that value. Click
here to go to the jumpering instructions for motor-mate.
Mini motor-mate works exactly the same way,
with 3 terminals. There values are; 2.5mfd, 5mfd
and 5mfd with a common black terminal. Click here
for full jumpering instructions for mini motor-mate.
these capacitors be used for anything other than
air conditioning units?
Yes, although the capacitor is primarily designed
for use in air conditioning units, it is suitable
for use on any motor that requires a motor-run capacitor.
need to keep a huge range of spares in my van and
with so many values of capacitors its increasing
all the time, Can I just keep these two and get
rid of my other stock?
Yes, the kit has been designed with the service
engineer in mind. The motor-mate replaces
over 200 types of the most common dual and single
value capacitors. The mini motor-mate replaces
20 single value capacitors.
are the dimensions of the can?
The motor-mate has a diameter of 2 1z2 inches
and a height of 5 inches. The mini motor-mate
has a diameter of 1 3z4 inches and a height of 3
have fitted a capacitor and it's defective. How
do I get a replacement?
In the unlikely event of a failure, simply return
the igniter to your wholesaler together with proof
of purchase for a replacement. Any problems email
motor-rundirect. All our products come with a one
year warranty click here for details.
motor-mate is larger than the capacitor I
replaced. Is it O.K. to fix them with zip ties or
other types of fixing?
Yes, it is fine to use zip ties
you found me :)
