Default Electric Motor Problem

My 10" table top drill press quit on me. The motor just hums when you turn it on and I believe it is the start capacitor. The problem is, I can not find a replacement capacitor anywhere. So, I thought maybe one of you may have an idea where to find such an animal. It is a CBB60.SH, 20 MFD, 250VAC, 50/60Hz. It's round with a 1 1/4" diameter, 2 3/4" tall and has two leads. Any help in locating a source would be appreciated.

Hi George,

Check out Graingers. They may carry just what you need.

Thanks, Ken, but Grainger's didn't have anything even close to what I needed. However! I did finally have a brain storm and decided to check the Ryobi web site. (DUH!) Guess what? There it was, on the repair parts site, big as day. The thing is the capacitor only costs $6.99, but the shipping is $8. Aint that a kick in the a**?

Get an old washing machine motor 1725 RPM. I put one on my 32" Delta drill press. Works fine.

George, for the sake of $15.00 you went out and bought a new drill press and it isn't even digital!

hi George,

you might try a Baker Bros if you know where one is. they sell refrigeration and air conditioning supplies. they sell quite a few capacitors.

p.s. it doesnt have to be the same size physically as long as you can mount it. you need a 20 microfarad 250 volt ac start capacitor.

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

Please Please Please edit your profile with a name and location so we can better assist you and make for a friendlier forum

surpluscenter.com has had starting capacitors in the past. You might want to contact them if you don't see something in the online catalog.

No. But, for 15 bucks it's worth a try.

That's right, Harry. Digital just means one more thing to go wrong. I went for quality (Ridgid 16" Stand) instead of bells and whistles. Besides, the broken one is the cheap, $99, 10", Ryobi bench top I bought about 4 yrs. ago (can you say run-out?) and, if I can fix it, I will use it as a dedicated mortising machine or use the motor on my drum sander I recently built.

I guess I've been lucky, I've had my Delta 16" DP since 1990 and the only things I've had to replace was the drive belt and chuck.
