Mantis Chipmate Info

A question was asked about the capacitor to start the motor. I pulled the cover off mine, which wasn’t as easy as I thought.

There are only three small Phillips head screws, which normally would not be an issue. However the units are stored in an outdoor shed. Seems like the wasps like to find small holes to fill with mud to make “nests”. I had to loosen all the mud, then scratch around in the screw slots to get the mud out of them so the screwdriver would get down into them and actually grip enough to turn them! I did get them cleaned and removed.

I took a few pictures of the capacitor and put everything back together.

Hope this helps!
