Topic tags/keywords: delta 36-5152 capacitor

Hi all,

I had a capacitor go bad on my Delta 36-5152 table saw and had such a difficult time finding information I thought I would post this so that it is out there in the ether!

There are two (2) capacitors under the motor that are easily accessible. There is a “Run” capacitor that is part number DPEC003209 and “Start” capacitor that is part number DPEC003210. The Start capacitor is 40 MFD / 370 VAC and 50/60 Hz. The Run capacitor is 324 MFD / 125 VAC.

Parts can be obtained through which Delta refers to. eReplacement parts’ phone number is 833-337-7216.

Like an idiot I forgot to take a photo of the capacitors and wires prior to disconnecting them and had to call Delta to get a wiring diagram. I have attached the wiring diagram.

I will post an actual picture of the capacitors connected after I get the replacement one and make sure the photo is correct.

I realize that many of you may not need this, but someone out there might at some point.

Thanks for all you do!

Turns out that the diagram I posted is incorrect. Dang those guys at Delta!!! Aaaargh. Called them back and told them and they said “Oh, you must have the Type 2 version”. I asked them to send me the wiring diagram for the Type 2 version and all I get now is crickets. Reinstalled the original capacitors and saw seems to work fine now. Will post photo of correct wiring so there is at least some record of it here in case someone has this problem in the future.

Have your say...
