Delta 62-044 Motor Missing Piece

I just purchased an old Delta 34-444 saw from a surplus inventory and it looks really great. Only problem is that the motor is missing an attachment and I can?t find a diagram for it to figure out what the missing piece is. Can someone help me figure it out?

Attached is a photo where I?m holding the motor starting capacitor. Next to it is the missing piece, with two black wires hanging out.

Help!

a missing capacitor

Unless you can back search the motor model number for the capacitor you will need to bring it to a motor repair service. They will know immediately which cap. it is run or start, and probable have one in stock. Some motors have 2 start capacitors.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Save yourself a lot of grief and take the motor to a shop. They will know what capacitor it needs and probably has replacement covers. A repair like that unless something else is wrong with the motor won't cost much.

The two wires coming out of the motor are for a run capacitor, what HP is the motor?

Yes. It was a run capacitor I needed. Marathon Electric Motors was the manufacturer and reached Back out to me after I submitted a request for help but I had already found a solution and ordered a TEMCO capacitor on Amazon with the following stats:

370/440v, 50/60Hz, +/-5%, Oil filled capacitor, no PCBs
1/4 in. Quadruple QCT terminals, 4 terminals per post
Dimensions: 2" diameter, 4.21" total height
Designed for replacement of OEM single and three phase motor capacitors. No hassle 1 Year Warranty.

I did not need that high of a voltage rating but it is working great.

How many MFD? that is the important part. The voltage ratings are because that capacitor uses both in coming voltage and back EMF, the back emf (voltage) is caused by the start windings that act like generators creating their own power and that is why a Permanent Split Capacitor motor runs more efficiently

BTW 3 phase motors use no capacitors

Thank you. It has the correct MFD rating of 50. It is a Phase 1 motor.

Help!!!

Deltasaw1985, I too purchased an old Delta contractor saw with a 62-044 motor. The motor was shorting out and I found that it had a blown capacitor in the location you mentioned. I replaced it using the specs on the blown one, but it was a start capacitor. It worked for about 10 minutes of use and then blew the new one. Your post mentions that you found it was supposed to be a Run capacitor and you gave those specs.

I am thinking of buying the capacitor you mentioned in your post, but am curious how you determined which it was that you needed. I have googled and the only info I could find was this thread, so I hope you get this and will reply.

Thanks!

FYI, the capacitor I replaced (which I am now thinking may have been replaced incorrectly by the previous owner) was a Start capacitor "PTMJ43".

Incidentally, the saw seems to run without the capacitor with the wire ends taped independently to eliminate them shorting out, but I'm nervous that this is NOT a good solution, so am not using it until resolved. Any help from anyone that reads this would be greatly appreciated!
