I have this motor (Samsung Electronics SMV-260UA) diagram and a 10 μF capacitor from a salvaged microwave:
I've experimented with supplying power, but I need start up current to kick the motor into action. I found a capacitor I believe is correctly rated.
This will be connected to an AC switch (toggle) and have a hot, ground, and neutral available. The capacitor should go where the C is in the diagram. But what is the correct wiring from the switch to make sure this is properly wired? The motor cord has purple, white, blue, orange and red wires.
[motor current 1,25 A, capacitor .85 A] is a problem correct?No. In all likelihood, motor current is specified through all of 2-3 windings, but the current through the main/ run winding doesn't flow through the capacitor (as does that through auxiliary/ start windings). \$\endgroup\$
