Response to My current 3/4 hp motor is connected to a gear box to reduce the speed and drive a pool cover takeup. This is the second time this motor has failed due to the potted electronics package which reverses the rotation. Can I pull the run capacitor out of a new motor and use my own reversing relay? I'm a EE with 5 years in motor control design.
