Does anyone know where I can get or what the specs are on the capacitor for a 2HP Harbor Freight dust collector motor? A friend of mine gave me his where the motor is still strong it only needs a new capacitor but I don’t want to get the wrong one. Thank you!

Open it up and get the numbers off of it.

I doubt that it will be difficult to find, I have a lot of Chinese electronics I have repaired with replacements I found from using the numbers provided.

I have that same unit. I can look in my paperwork and see if I can find it for you.

Dallas: I probably should have mentioned in my post that I don’t have the capacitor

Hoosier: thanks that would be great.

I have the HF 2HP DC.

The start cap info is: CD60 400MFD 125VAC size is 3” long X 1 3/8 dia.

I think this cap will fit under the cover….

I believe this one is too fat to fit under the cover. I think the cap needs to be under 3.5” long and 1.5” or less in diameter to fit.

I don’t have the cover so either way it is going to have to be mounted creatively.

Well in that case size doesn’t matter.

Here’s a straight 400MFD 125VAC …...

I’m having trouble with my HF DC and wanted to know which capacitor you got.
