Ceiling Fan Capacitor replacement
I need to replace my ceiling fan capacitor because it only works on its high speed. Any other speed makes the fan slow to a crawl then even stop at times. I been having trouble finding the exact capacitor the fan has.
At Amazon I found this capacitor but I am not sure it will work in my fan since for the red its 4.5uf/300v instead of 4.5uf/280v that the old one has. While the brown and purple match in numbers
At lowes.com I found a capacitor that at first mached one I need but when I ordered it and it arrived it was totally different from the image lowes had in its website. This is what I received from lowes
Does anyone know if its ok to use the one from lowes or is it better for me to just return it and get the one from Amazon instead?
Thanks to eveyone who answered my post. I ended up just returning the one from lowes. I didnt want the higher microfarad messing up my cealing fan. Instead I ordered one i saw on amazon. I made sure the macrofarads matched the old one, and followed the adviced on the voltage rating being higher but not lower then the the old ratings. It finally got here yesterday. The lowes one looked better physically, like better made then the amazon one. I installed it anyways and now the fan works at all speeds. Hopefully it lasts a good while and isn't some crappy knockoff, which now a days is very common.
