I have an old Pentair Dynamo 1HP that won't start on its own.
Cant find an internal schematic on the motor.
The back plastic is busted off and the switch is missing with the yellow and blue wire wired together (bypassing switch, I done that). I can plug it up and it hums but wont spin until I give it a spin with my hand. I dont know if the capacitor is missing or there just wasnt one but Im sure if I could wire one in that would fix the problem. The only loose wires goes to the on/off switch so I guess there wasnt a capacitor. There is some kind of centrifugal switch inside because when it gets to spinning, I hear it click. I cant see it in there but I dont know what its for. There is some kind of thermal protection built in but I dont want to take it apart unless I have to.
How can I wire a capacitor to it or can I? There are 2 sides to the capacitor, just not exactly sure where they need to be hooked up. I have an extra one on hand.
