    There are two types of motors that use capacitors: Capacitor start and permanent split capacitor. Capacitors for capacitor start generally run greater than 50uf and are packaged in bakelite cylinders, while capacitors for permanent split capacitor generally run at below 20uf and are in hermetically sealed cans.
