This cap came out of my air compressor when the motor refused to start with no load. It had been getting sluggish for awhile.
My question is can I substitute any 60 mfd , 250v Cap? What do the other specs mean?

Thanks
John

John;

Any AC motor run capacitor with a 60 mfd 250VAC rating should work.
Here is a link to a source of exactly what you have and an explanation of
all the specs.

This is not a capacitor you would find in an
electronics shop. AC motor run and starting
capacitors are a special breed of cap you
will find at a electrical equipment dealer.

If you're not in a big hurry, you can get this
one delivered to your door in 3-4 days for
$13 . . .

"Retail" on this device will probably be
a bit higher if you don't have an account
with a local jobber . . . but they're
pretty common and shouldn't be hard to find.
