  • CAPACITOR Tester.

    The best $50.00 you will ever spend.

    If the owner tells you this is too much for this item, tell him about the man hours, equipment loss and headaches caused by searching for bad capacitors!*

    If this doesn't do it, tell him he missed his calling. He should run the shell game at one of the traveling carnivals that comes through once a year. You know the guy with 3 halved walnut shells and a kernel of corn, bilking people out of their hard earned money. The only expense he will have is renting his space. LOL

    *Once in awhile you run across a cap that reads fine but still doesn't function properly. Noticed this in the past few years, especially ones coming from foreign countries.

        Team the cap. meter with a ESR meter and you'll find that "good" bad capacitor...
        I've had enough of hope & chains.

            Specialized testers are a good idea... I have a BK PRECISION 'Test Bench' meter that has served me well for a lot of years working on these machines... it's your everyday DMM, with the added capability of testing diodes, capacitors, and transistors. Saved me a lot of time with machine electrical and chassis work.

                  A new capacitor is only $8.

                    Re: CAPACITOR Tester.

                    that is a great tool

                    especially when the cap goes and you don't have to remove motor to fix just d\change the cap

                    also when troubleshooting ac units as well

                    i found it at a local ac supply house

                      <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">AWWW, come on now Jerry and spring fifty bucks and get one of these. Don't you charge 50 an hour for service work? Didn't I see on another of your threads that the caps were labled wrong and it was a big headache for you to sort out the problem? Bet it took you the better part of an hour just to do this 3 minute job; (I know this only takes 3 minutes). If this happened on one of your service jobs, don't you feel like you screwed the owner out of 57 minutes of his hard earned money??? Know I would. Now lighten up Jerry and get you one. You'll wonder how you ever did without it. And: The owner will think your a genius when you get a machine running that's been down for 3 days; in less than 10 minutes!!!

                        The tester is awsome....That said, it would not detect where the cap went, simply if it was good or not, and you have to disconect it for it to work in the first place.

                        Following the wires to thier destination does not take an hour, and I bet it didnt take Jerry more than 15 minutes to figure it out....lol

                        I dont always see eye to eye with him, but he is a good tech.
