I have a 9" Craftsman (Sears) drill press that just smoked the motor
capacitor. I call Sears about a replacement and they want to sell me
the whole motor (of course). I'm trying to replace just the
capacitor but I don't know if it's a run or start. Here's what
labeled on the cap:

16mF +/- 5%
Wenling Star &Fire Capacitors Factory

The model of the drill is 137.219090 if that helps

How can I determine if it's a run or start cap?


They specialize in motors and motor parts. You might even have one of
them near you.
