1 1/2 HP Painted 56 Frame Motor Start Capacitor
The 1 1/2 HP Painted 56 Frame Motor Start Capacitor is a 650 /- 20% uF capacitor that mounts into the housing of the boat lift motor. UL listed. Elite Motors OEM part. Works with Marathon, GE, A.O. Smith, and Leeson motors. A capacitor located in the housing on the side of the motor. Briefly increases motor start torque. In boat lifts when the motor is a little sluggish at the start or just hums, it is a typical indicator that the start capacitor should be replaced. Easy as replacing a battery. No motor entry required.
Start capacitor power measured by units of capacitance, labeled in microfarads (uF). This is the ability of a body to store an electrical charge; the smaller the number the less the charge. Most known C-Face, single phase, 3/4 HP boat lift motors use start capacitors with a uF capacitance as low as 600.
