1 HD HP – 1 1/2 HP Painted 56 Frame Motor Start Capacitor
The 1 HD HP – 1 1/2 HP Painted 56 Frame Motor Start Capacitor is a 480 /- 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. 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.

OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is stated that this capacitor is the factory capacitor for the Elite Brand Motors and can be used as a universal capacitor for other brand motors. BH-USA has tested this capacitor for the listed brands to be used as a universal capacitor, however you will still need to measure the inside of the housing to insure that this start capacitor will fit. This capacitor could differ in size, color and markings as the capacitor on your existing motor. Take caution when working with any electrical component and insure that the motor is un-plugged before attempting to change the capacitor. A start capacitor can still have the ability to shock you even when the motor is un-plugged. BH-USA always recommends you hire a licensed electrician for any work done on electric motors.
