For example, today's major appliances use a lot of electronic circuitry mounted on PC (Printed Circuit) boards. The problem with that is that service technicians do not repair those boards, they replace them. The problem with that is that a m...

There are two different types of capacitors associated with electric motors—motor starting capacitors and motor running capacitors. Motor Start Capacitors and Motor Run capacitors are not the same type of capacitors. Motor Start capacitors are Dry Electrolytic Capacitors and Motor Run Capacitors are Oil Filled Capacitors. They serve different purposes in the circuit and cannot be used interchangeably. Testing Motor Start Capacitors will not be covered in this article.

These different voltage are provided by transformers, electrical devices that step-up or step-down the 110-Volt line voltage.
