    I'm having difficulty finding information about the proper start and run capacitor for a compressor motor on a glycol chiller. The unit is quite old, and had been previously stripped of all it's supporting electronics. Just a fan and compressor right now.

    What I do know, the compressor has an embossed plate reading:

    1929-87 4A (the 4A is not embossed in the plate, rather it looks stenciled on)

    E: C27-64 616036 AR26

    V115 C60 HP 1/2

    V100 C50 AMP 6.7

    Can anyone help me in determining what I need to meet the specifications of the motor?

    Are you sure it had a start and run capacitor, and is each winding identified?

    Max, I am not sure if it had both start and run capacitors. Windings are not identified on the motor.

    No name or make on the plate?
