I'm in Panama
without a Generator
and am wondering if I can use any available capacitor with same specs?
You might want to contact Jeff Till at Panda (email@example.com
). I have found him to be very helpful.
FWIW I recently had one of the capacitors fail on our generator and it turned out that the control box
had been installed incorrectly by the installer. It needs be vertical. The capacitor tubes are filled with oil
and there is a tiny breather hole at the top. By mounting the control box
horizontally, the oil
in one of the capacitors leaked out ruining the device.
N'any case, Panama isn't the end of the earth and Jeff may be able to help you out.
