Can anyone help me with a replacement for this capacitor? I think the specs say: 130 - 154 micro farads 60Hz But I can't see what the volts AC says. There are no other markings on the unit. Any help would be great. Thanks, Rob
Hello everyone, Having a bit of trouble. I've got a big Coast spa. Got a screaming deal on it - 8 seater, two 2 stage pumps, etc. etc. It's one from 2003-2004 that had the motor recall (which I'm currently trying to take advantage of with Coast). My problem is this: motor 2 was burning fuses. It would fire up and run just fine or it would buzz before burning a fuse. I left is sit for several months just using pump 1. The other day, I finally got a new capacitor put on and, lo and behold, the motor fired right up (and blew a pound of algae into the water). However, it only runs stage two. Stage one doesn't click, buzz, pop or make any indication that it's attempting to activate. So, my question is: is it possible that I plugged the capacitor in backwards or something? I didn't think it's run at all if I mis-wired it. The replacement is, of course, an exact match for the old one. Or, is the pump simply too old or has been sitting too long? It just surprised me that stage 2 pumped powerfully but stage 1 wont make a sound.
Hi, New to the forum and have a question for you all. My hot tub trips the 20 Amp GFCI when I turn the pumps on sporradically. Most typically noted on jets 2, and if they do come on then I turn them off and back on it will trip. Once on they run strong for 30 + minutes. So, powering on pump 1, then pump 2, may work fine, however if I turn pump 2 off it trips the breaker when I turn it back on. I disconnected pump 2 from the IQ2020 and pump one had noe problems. My best guess is its the capacitor, but newb to hot tubs. The hotsprings store said that you cannot buy a capacitor alone, and would need to buy a motor. They also offered to come check it out for a $200 service call. Any advice would be appreciated!
