    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.

      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.

      Check that any vents around the case are clear of debris and that it can circulate air to cool it. if it continues to overheat when not being 'over worked' then it is likely to be the motor failing.

      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.
