# Can a starting capacitor lower a fridge starting draw from 2400 watts to 800 or less without damaging the motor and how can the size of capacitor needed be determined?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

#### already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

#### exists and is an alternate of .

could be If you lower the start cap size it may take milliseconds longer to start so it will still use the approximate same amt of power. Size? search for "appliance repair parts" enter your model number and you may be able to locate the value of the start cap. go from there.

# 3 types of capacitor start motor?

Types of Motors . There are different types of Capacitor-start motors designed and used in various fields. They are as follows: . Single-voltage, externally reversible type

# How you determine the starting and running winding of a capacitor start single phase motor?

I think the resistance value of starting winding is less than the running winding of the single phase motor

# Why capacitor is used to start an induction motor?

A capacitor fed winding on a single phase motor produces a phase shifted magnetic field that induces a starting torque in the rotor. Once sufficient RPM is achieved a centripe

Definitely.

# What do start capacitors do in the motor circuit?

When a capacitor is so introduced, the voltage lags the current by some phase angle. In these motors, the necessary phase difference between the Is and Im is obtained by intro

# Can you replace 1.7 microFarad capacitor with 2 microFarad capacitor of capacitor start motor?

It should work okay as long as voltage rating is equal to or greater than the capacitor you are replacing.

yes

The start winding needs a capacitor in series with it in order to produce a phase shifted magnetic field that will develop the torque necessary to bring the rotor up to operat

# How can a capacitor start motor be reversed?

Unless the motor is designed to be reversed, perhaps by changing some of the wiring, a capacitor start motor cannot be reversed. Consult the nameplate for specifics.

# Is a capacitor or a capacitor start motor used in a refrigerator?
