    Capacitor Size Required for 9,000 BTU



    Hello.

    Does anyone know what capacitor size is required for a 9,000 BTU standard single phase compressor?

    Hi Kompulsa

    all cap sizing differs, no good wild guessing

    you will either need the original to match it with

    the schematic for the compressor or the unit

    or will need to ask supplier that stocks that compressor

    or the manufacturer

    Start cap, run cap, PSC cap?

    Based on the supplied information i'd say, and i caution you its only a guess, one about 35mm round by 80mm long would do....






    Always fit the same type and capacitance as fitted by the manufacturer, you can go higher on voltage but not lower. If all else fails, look at another unit by the same manufacturer and see whats on that one.

    I know people who used to size them by the dimensions! They had an oxygen reg for thier nitrogen bottle to so could only test to 14psi.....

    I had caps that were faulty ( would not pass acceptance test as ESR was off scale) so sent back to stores. Got them back again, they did a VISUAL check, and found them within specs. Sent back again with leads cut off...

    25mf 400volt capacitor will do the job.
