Topic tags/keywords: question

So I have a 2HP 120/240 motor from a dust collector that has a blown starting capacitor that was oil filled. 125V 200mf. If I run the motor at 240v do I change the start cap. to a 240V?

Normally the capacitor should be of a higher voltage rating than the circuit that it’s in.

Have your say...
