Default Motor start capacitors

Hello,

I need to replace the motor start capacitor on my tumble drier, but have
forgotten (lost the bit of paper from the fag packet...) which wire goes
where. There are 2 wires coming from the motor itself, and 1 wire from
elsewhere in the machine but only 2 terminals on the cap. Any help would be
much appreciated.

Steve

You'll need to provide a much better description.
A motor with only two wires doesn't use a start or run capacitor.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the reply. What I should have said is that there are 2 wires
from the motor which should connect to the capacitor and 1 wire from
elsewhere within the machine. there are of course more than 2 wires going to
the motor itself.

Well, this is still far too little info to be sure, but I suspect
you will need to connect the capacitor between the two motor wires,
and the supply wire to one side of the capacitor. If you connect
the supply to the wrong capacitor terminal, the motor will turn
in the wrong direction.
