I opened the pump to run my waterfall and spa jets, Sta-Rite with a #U27-1221 (C48J2PA105C1) motor, and noticed black melted plastic inside the cap and under the capacitor. Have anyone ever had this happen to them?
I recently replaced that capacitor and I'm sure I replaced it with the same specs as the original capacitor. I'm also sure that I connected the capacitor exactly how the old capacitor was connected. I'm guessing replacing the capacitor is the smart thing to do? Or should I be focusing on replacing the motor or pump? Should I be worried and immediately shut off the circuit or anything else?
