I need to replace the mains wire connection which will entail also replacing some of the internal wiring. The insulation of which is perished and showing bare wire.
The information I am seeking is with regard to a unit which has three wires connecting it to earth neutral and live. I take it this is a suppressor.
It carries the following:-
0.025+2 x 0.005µF
Type S.825x (cannot see missing digit)
Since originally writing this post the "suppressor" has shed part of the casing - the side with the details printed on. This revealed further information - "Type S.825x" - there appears to be an extra character on the part remaining. I do not wish to remove it from the motor casing as it may still be serviceable – I hope! Should a replacement not be obtainable.
Is it likely that such an item or an equivalent would still be available?
This is a reply from the same post on an alternative forum
“Sounds like a 3-capacitors-in-one-housing EMI suppressor as used in many domestic appliances which include a motor.
The 25µF cap would be an X-type connected directly between the two supply rails. The two 5µF caps would be Y-type, connected in series, the series combo being connected between the supply rails with the centre-tap of the combo being connected to ground”.
I have drawn out a schematic of the circuit connections - to help ensure that I rewire it correctly. Also have taken two photographs. No.1 shows the suppressor as located in the body of the tool. No.2 is of the broken off piece. These are attached to this post Unfortunately I am getting "file too large" when I try to attach the photographs
Hope this helps.
BTW the filehippo website has a splendid program for reducing the size of images - and it's f.o.c.! You could then post pics - including one of the repaired item!
