This is very timely.
El Sprinto failed on me twice this weekend, very hot coil etc. just under an hour later she started again. I know somebody mentioned fitting a proper 1 micro farad capacitor externally, but I haven't found anything suitable.
do you have the part number for the Fiesta condenser please?
Hi Malcolm, Here is a link to the thread on the external capacitor I had on my 1850.
The manual quotes the specified value as being 0.18 to 0.23uF
The one I tried is still available from R.S. Components 0.22uF at 1KV d.c rating part number 114-610 but the price is now nearly £6 each.
Is the Fiesta unit round about 0.2uF ?
Now with the link...
