Q: I've lost the capacitor that was included with my AC motor purchase. Now I need to find a suitable replacement from a local source because I needed it yesterday. What type of capacitor is this? My local vendor is asking me if this is a "running" capacitor or "starting" capacitor.

A: Capacitors are for starting our AC motors so it would be the "starting" type.
