i appreciate the info, i will abandon the idea of mismatched caps. i have already cleaned up enough confetti. i was looking for a shortcut as usual but instead i will delve into the internet as i need more info.
I would say yes.... Would a time delay relay be easier to obtain ...
Are your K2 and or K3 relays switching the start capacitor out too soon? The start capacitor needs to stay in the circuit until the motor is nearly up to speed and to do that the start relay/contactor has to be a special type that does not pull in until a specific voltage is reached.I built this based on your system. I am having a problem with it coming up to speed. It starts but turns slowly. Any ideas?
Don't deviate from the design by adding things not shown or using the wrong type of parts in the wrong places.What do you suggest?
