'40 Handitwin Condensor

Postby Mike Stroz » Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:40 am

Looks like my "new" condensor just gave up the ghost. What value should I get to replace it?

Standard OMC condensers are about .22 mfd +/-, dunno about 1940 values tho. Experts will be along shortly...

Not sure if you saw my post, but which motor are you referring to? Spent a while trying to come up with a motor that doesn't have the condenser value listed, but couldn't think of one.

You may just be overthinking this.

Think the highest condenser I ever had to buy was for the P30, P35, P40, P45, PR40, TR40 which use the 72-651 rated at 0.4 (0.36 to 0.44)

As Joe states, good old 0.22 almost always gets her done. 90 percent of the time anyways

I'm definitely going to be copying down those charts now! I've been pretty darn lucky with condensors in my Eltos up until now, this is the first one I've needed to actually buy!

One more question- does anyone recommend a specific brand of condensor or place to buy from?
