    Default nilfisk 120.6 does not start capcitor fault ?

    hi have the nilfisk 120.6 pressure washer , did some research on the net looking for the problem i think its down to the
    capacitor , checked power supply etc..
    dismantled the unit and spun the motor by hand and at the same time gave it some power motor started to run.
    trying to identifiy the capacitor and its value so can try replacent,
    please can someone direct me to the equivalent from the picture.
    thanks raf

    not sure of this type of washer but that capacitor looks a wee bit small for a starting capacitor?
    .normally they are in the 20-30 micro farad range, as printed on the large pill box type capacitor.
    could be wrong on that , usually if starting capacitor goes faulty the motor just makes a humming noise and perhaps left too long blows the fuse.
    regards jim
