Capacitor Combined Start/Run/Speed

Capacitor Combined Start/Run/Speed


In stock



An AC/DC ceiling fans has two electronic components in it. One is a start/run capacitor and the other is the speed capacitor.

As the name suggests, the start/run capacitor both helps your fan to start, but also determines it's top speed.

This electronic components is in use all the time the fan is in use so they can wear out over time. Power surges and spikes from storms and bad power supply can also shorten their life span.

If your fan is running slow on high, then it is most likely that the start/run capacitor needs to be replaced.

The speed capacitor basically slows the fan down from it's high speed, down to medium and low speeds. This capacitor is only in use when your fan is on medium or low, and is not in use when the fan is on high, therefore rarely wears out.

You only need to buy this capacitor if your fan is running fine on high but the fan will not slow down to medium or low.

In most fans these two capacitors are separate, but in some Hunter fans they are combine into one capacitor like this one.

These capacitors are a genuine Hunter replacement part.
