Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Intermittent A/C Seawater Pump

I'm confused, you two seem to be agreeing and yet you're saying different things. mF and µF differ by a factor of 1000!  m is the metric prefix for milli, i.e. 1/1,000. µ (often written u because it's easier to type) is the metric prefix for micro, i.e. 1/1,000,000. So which is it?

Yes, that 10 mf run capacitor is the most common failed part when the pump is doing what you say. Of course there could be other causes.

Mark Erdos makes a very good point about the best replacement for the pump.

Bill, are you referring to the 10uF (10 microFarad) cap which is in the box on top of the pump?
