I have a model 113.232210 Jointer/Planer and am trying to find a replacement capacitor. I tried the original manufacturer and they no longer make that cap. It is 15.0 mfd+/- 10%, 220vac. It has two terminals at each end. One end was connected to the red wires for the power and the relay and the other end the black wires were similarly connected. Is there a replacement available or can this set-up be rewired? All of the capacitors I have seen have only one terminal at each end.

Thanks for replying.

I went to ***** first. They no longer cary the part and didn't know how to rewire any capacitors.

I then went to American Radionic Co., Inc. in Florida. They no longer make that part at all. They would not answer any question as to whether the machine could be rewired to use any single terminal capacitors.

That's when I turned to this website.

Check out places that do electric motor repair. If it's available, they'll know. If there's a way to use an alternate, they'll also know.

Thanks for the reply. I think that is all I can do at this point.

I'll check some of the electric shops in the area. Thanks again.
