I bought this motor from surpluscenter. It is not used but I don't know when it was made.
I connected it up and it just stalls when applying 115VAC but if I give it a spin it runs fine. It has a little spring loaded gizmo on the fan side that connects the capacitors and it has 3 capacitors, 2 160uf and 1 35uf. Could the capacitors just be hosed, how do I test them? Should i just be able to put a single capacitor instead of the three if the caps are bad?
Should I just buy a new motor because this one is a piece of junk?
