    This capacitor replaces the original in my Bosch AXT 1600 Shredder, which after several years started smoking and melted slightly. Rather than scrap the whole Shredder I thought I would try replacing the burnt out part. This espares part is an exact match, including the threaded rod at the bottom, which screws into the inside of the control panel. So undo a few screws (which you have to do to find out what has gone wrong!), you will need a special screwdriver bit as they are not standard Phillips heads, remove the control panel cover, unclip the two wires from the old capacitor, unscrew the capacitor from the casing, reverse the process to fit your new capacitor and you are good to go. Hopefully many more years of shredding now still ahead!

    My shredder would only make a buzzing sound when switched on, until I fitted the capacitor purchased from Espares. When switched on after fitting,which was very easy , the Bosch 1600 shredder burst into life again saving me from buying a replacement.
  • Easy to fit, and good price

    Cannot comment on the durability of this item, but it was priced competitively, was on a reasonably quick delivery, and worked continuously for about three hours right after installation.

      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.
