Description

Your tumble dryer is power boosted by the capacitor 

The capacitor releases energy when the tumble dryer's motor turns on, increasing power output. This extra energy facilitates the motor's early startup by lowering resistance and inertia.

Once the motor is moving, the capacitor keeps the power supply steady for continuous operation.

What damages the capacitor?

A dryer capacitor has a finite lifespan, just like any other electronic component. It might endure normal wear and tear over time, which could cause a deterioration in function and lead to failure. 

The capacitor may overheat due to excessive heat created inside the dryer from continuous use, inadequate ventilation, or defective parts. High temperatures can cause the dielectric material to deteriorate, which can cause the capacitor to break down or lose capacitance.

Spot on component

My Tumble drier stopped working and I suspected the Starting Capacitor, as it would run if the drum was given a little push. The Capacitor was easy to fit and solved the problem within a few minutes of receiving it. Thanks to Ransom Spares.
