    yes another pump buzzing help...

    hello all...i have a hayward northstar 2hp pump...it just started to buzz yesterday...i stopped at all the local pool shops and looked online (ebay, amazon, google etc) but i could not find a matching capacitor....that will be my first try...if it doesnt work i will have to get a new pump....anyone know where would be a good source to find this capacitor with a fast turnaround time....it ran year round for 3 1/2 years so what do i do in the mean time to keep it clean and manageable...thanks

    csc 55uf +/- 6% 370vac/b50/60hz

    thanks

    You might try calling them up and giving them the part#. They may be able to cross-reference to another part. Also, local motor shops might have them as well.
