wanted: GE lamp capacitor 330 V 13,5 µF for 175W mv lamp « on: August 13, 2021, 07:17:38 AM » Author: Olav
Hello everyone,

the old capacitor 13,5 µF has now died.
The 175W mv lamp flickers strongly during operation.

Can someone please give me a source where I can get this capacitor as a spare part?

Thank you for any information.

What is the tolerance..? You might be able to find something on eBay but 13.5 is an odd value. Look for motor run capacitors. I have a spare 13µF capacitor here, but it is only rated for 250V as a PFC capacitor.

I would like to try first to find a replacement capacitor in the original design.
The second option is a completely new capacitor (cylindrical) if there is no longer an old type.

These kinda look like the caps used in AC units for the outdoor fan motor, if you want to i would check a ac parts supplier in the us and see if you can find one of this spec and sent over to germany. 8) If not another us member could help you find one. :)

Thank you so much, that would be of great help to me.
Do you still need information about the capacitor?

Due to odd value it not common
 Very close cap u can find in is 12.5uF
  Most of cap have 10 percent tolerences
     -1.35 or plus 1.35

    I would get very well made high quality motor run cap
 In 12.5 uF in common value.  Such as Amrad 12.5 uF
  Lot time they will be over like 13 uF and have 440 volt rating
 So it a should last a while.
