Generator Guru says: 

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 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.
  • The Capacitor is made of Paper cells and the paper has degraded. (Usually pre 1998 generators.)
  • The Alternator has got damp and electricity has surged across the windings. (Dry out before running.) 

NOTE: Do not use this type of Generator with sensitive equipment (Computers, LCD TV, Caravan Charging systems and anything with a computer chip) unless you have an in-line "Surge Protector." These generators are designed to run power tools and the electricity output is not controlled. This can result in damaging your equipment.

    Excellent service I wasn't sure what I needed but you help me through that and when I received the part my so called electrician who works for Network Rail wasn't sure that it was the right part came up with a story that the generator was now producing too many volts but a quick phone call to you very soon sorted that. If you have a neighbor who works for Network Rail and is an electrician by trade do not involve him no wonder the rail electrification is taking so long and so much over budget. Look forward to doing business with you again but not too soon.
