Dessalator Duo 160 - AC Motor for High Pressure Pump
Good day to all,
We are having some problems with our watermaker. At times, the high pressure pump will not start when power is applied to the AC motor. I have had success by manually spinning the pump first and then it has worked or by running it shortly after shutting down the system. I was thinking that it could be the capacitors or even brushes (no sure if this is a brushless motor or not). As far as the capacitors are concerned, I am not sure what the specs are as mine have been painted over. I read on the forum that both are 30 micro farads (I forget the voltage), but have been told by a shop in Martinique that the running capacitor was 45 micro farads. I don’t recall what they said for the starting capacitor but they did say they were different.
As always, any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.
All the best,
