I have a sweetwater AQ101 aerator pump in a box on a post in the shade for my pond, and the capacitors keep failing.. I don't have the original one. But over the years I have bought some with same specs.

But this year all I could find where ones that have a range, and it failed after a week. I bought 3 and I'm on the second one now...

1 - Does anyone know the exact capacitor that I need for this pump??

2 - Also, Should I just shut it off when it's this hot? It's been a bit humid and in the 90s for a week here in Ohio..

Thanks!

If you are able to read what the existing part values are, I can recommend an equivalent or better for you. Often the polymer caps don’t like to run hot for long.

Thanks, but I don't have the original one. It's long gone..

They have the part that I can order for the capacitor. (Last in the list, mines not the c model) It's like $37..($50 with shipping!) I may have to just order it to see what the specs are, because they don't have a pic, or specs... I guess they just want their $37.
