Yet another follow-up to How does one determine whether a waterlogged High HP pump is electrically OK to use?
The pump is out now. The screws on the housing being jammed/rusted tight, I've applied some rust-remover. Hopefully that shall do the trick. Whilst I wait for the rust-remover to do it's job, I'm wondering about the OEM condenser attached. It doesn't look like it was submerged, and seems OK electrically on the multimeter ...
EDIT: In this simulacrum, the condenser/capacitor is the mounted atop the centre of the device body. To test it with the multimeter I set it in applied the probes to the terminals. This had the result of showing the resistance increase gradually as the capacitor charged up.
- If this condenser is indeed bad/soon-to-be bad, what damage could it do to the pump?
- Out of curiosity - what happens if the replacement condenser is not of identical rating but rather is rated higher/lower?
