High specification Capacitor manufactured for long life.

Generator Guru says: 

It is common for the capacitor on a generator to test as working correctly, but then fail when the higher voltages are applied to it by the alternator. It is advisable to always change your Generator Capacitor if the voltage changes (and the engine is normal speed.) This causes 99% of the problems with the electricity output on brushless generators and can damage your alternator if it completely fails, sending a high voltage through the alternator. This could burn out the windings and result in a very expensive replacement being required.

The Capacitor is essential to your Generator producing electricity. It is required to excite the Alternator windings and reduce voltage surges. Capacitors should last the lifetime of the generator, but can burn out or be damaged if any of the following occur: 

  • Generator user has tried to draw more power than the Generator can produce.
  • A surge has happened on equipment and the capacitor has blown to protect the Alternator.

    Great service from Generator Guru

    I had a brand new 1000 watt generator, which I bought seven years earlier and left in the box. When I took it out the generators gas engine started up immediately but it wasn't producing power. I took it apart to try and figure what was wrong using my multi-meter. I got some readings and then called Generator Guru for some technical advice. The on-line GG engineer I spoke, based on the multi-meter figures I provided was able to determine I had a faulty capacitor. He confirmed what I needed and answered all of my technical questions. I then proceeded to order the part from GG on-line.I installed it and reassembled the generator. It restarted without difficulty and generated electricity as it was supposed to. I was very pleased.

    I was having a hard time finding the part i needed so I asked for help from your staff. I gave them numbers from generator and received a email quickly and ordered it paying for it with paypal. Your business even gave me a discount promo code when I forgot to add it to order. I'am very happy with service. The parts were sent quickly and your staff were kind
