Do not discard your old broken ceiling fan capacitor. It stores the energy needed to run the engine and so the blades turn at a time. A healthy capacitor is vital for the proper functioning of your ceiling fan. Disconnect the fan power. Get it out of your location and place it on a firm surface. Leave the fan for a minute so that your capacitor is fully discharged. Locate the capacitor. If the fan ceiling has different speed settings, is located near the pull rope changing speeds, but it can also be a switch.
The ceiling fan capacitor is a small rectangle having three to five cables connected to the base of the string. If the fan has only one speed, the capacitor is attached to the two wires that supply power to the motor and is located next to it. Cut all cables that are connected to the condenser with the help of pliers. Do it as close as possible to the capacitor to connect the replacement. Place each of the wires on the capacitor parts and secure them with duct tape. If you mix the cables, you will make the fan speeds remain haphazardly, but not harm the life of the appliance.
