Please tell me if I have this right. With my 'square' PSU (parallel connected?) running an 807 motor the phase cap should be 0.39u not 0.242(0.22+0.022) as fitted to mine? Could this be due to the replacement motor I fitted when my deck was a few years old?
Thanks for the info, Phil.
By square, read rectangular! The older type at the back of the deck. If yours runs ok - leave it as it is. According to Philips, 807/818 are exactly the same, save for the fixing lugs. Mine seemed to be better with a higher value. You could try connecting a 0.15 across the screw terminals and see if it's better or worse - only way to tell!
