Compressor Start Capacitor Question
I want to purchase spare parts for my Econar Geosource 2000 GSHP because of recurring failures (all different) and a long wait time to find replacements.
One of the items I am having trouble finding is a Compressor Start Capacitor that exactly matches the specs that are on the current (working) part.
The Econar unit I have is a 5 ton vertical unit with a scroll compressor.
The CSC has the following notes on the can:
60 UF, 370V
it is a round can
I found on grainger.com two Dayton CSC's that are close but not exact. Can I use one of these as a replacement - or do I have to match the original exactly?
Dayton 2MEL2: 53-64MFD, 330V
Dayton 2MEL3: 64-77MFD, 330V
I wonder why the original part only has 1 capacitance rating while most of the parts I am finding have a range. Also - what is the signficinace of the 370V rating on the original vs. the 330V rating on the Dayton parts. Can you exaplain why that is?
If I can't use the Dayton parts, can you point me to a source where I can find the CSC that I need?
