I like capulator better.
Did you use a flux capulator?
I just replaced the "capulator" on the motor on my big table saw. Got to where it wouldn't spin up without blowing the breaker. All better now.
I have an old but low-hour Westinghouse combined-unit dual-compressor commercial AC system out back of the shop. I really want to hook it up and AC the shop. When I went to test it last year, it fired right off. Then one by one, the fan and compressor motors quit...turns out that just about every single start and run "capulator" was bad. There are 10 of the damned things on the unit...
