Can anyone recommend a replacement start up capacitor for the Black and Decker HD 1000, at present it is a KPB 1213 886219 no longer available.
Best regards

Doesn't that have a Universal (brushed) motor?
If so what duty does the cap do?
If it was a induction motor start/run cap, there would be many choices.

That motor is a universal type, the capacitor will be a mains smoothing type, not a startup cap.
can you take a picture of the capacitor to see what the value is and voltage rating?

Or, call DeWalt (=B&D) customer service to find the specs or availability of such. The tool does not work without such capacitor ??

Regardless, I would suggest using a motor run capacitor, they are built to last and usually oil filled paper.
The original may have been Chinese origin which are notably have a high failure rate.

What is the symptoms?
Why do you suspect the cap?
Suspected a fuse had blown, when I looked it was a 5 amp fuse fitted, I fitted a 13 amp fuse on switching the saw on there was a loud bang, on further inspection what I believe to be the capacitor was smoking and one of the three wires going to it had came out and the plastic casing had came off.
