    Not perhaps the most exciting product, but the old one had burst and this replacement was easy to find, arrived promptly in a shipping pack that was easy to open and recycle. Good service as usual..

    Found this item through Google, and although not as originally fitted, it was the nearest available. Was fitted and shredder reassembled within ten minutes. Works fine.

    Part was required as the last one had blown up. Replacement was easy to find on the site and delivery was prompt. Had a question on polarity and which connection was which and the good folks at Espares answered my email within half an hour. All fixed within 10 minutes.

      Thanks I checked the capacitor again, and noticed that the terminal end plate had lifted by approx. 1mm on one side. Ordered the new capacitor and fitted. Shredder now works fine. Thanks for the advice.

      If the motor has got very hot it is possible the insulation has broken down and the motor has now shorted out. Check this capacitor is not short or showing signs of damage. if OK suspect the motor.

      If the motor is not jammed this capacitor may be the problem.

  • Q Which wire fits to which terminal? 1 Answer

    I've bought this item already after the old capacitor blew but don't remember which wire (red or blue) goes to which terminal. There are no polarity markings so I assume it is either way. Is there anyway to confirm please? Many thanks.

      This capacitor provides a supply to one of the motor windings and couples AC electricity. There are no markings as it can be connected either way without causing a problem due to its design.
