Identify and replace a blown capacitor

Unread postby rocketman » Tue Aug 12, 2014 7:48 am

Found this PDF that describes the process to identify and to replace a blown capacitor,
I don't think it's for everyone, but I'll leave it here if anyone find it useful.

Anyone know why I can't open the link? Click on it and it shows it's downloading.. and then I get a pop-up that says Adobe reader can't open it. This is on my Apple.. altho I have never seen this pop-up before in hundreds of downloads.

I've just replaced a start/run capacitor on a freezer, simple and cheap fix, google and youtube are your friends for learning how to test a capacitor.
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

It seems the file was corrupted (probably caused by one of the physical node issues we experienced a few months ago). I reuploaded it and the download should be fine again.
