Response to No, stay with the same rating on your capacitor. Unfortunately there is no way to determine why you have gone thru 2 lately. It should have nothing to do with the change in voltage as the mfg chose that specifically for the dual voltage motor. Your motor windings could be going bad/weak, it could be the new capacitors themselves.
