Functionally, CBB61 capacitors serve a pivotal role in regulating the start-stop mechanisms and fan speeds across a broad spectrum of ceiling fan motors that rely on this capacitor type. From facilitating smooth start-ups to modulating fan speeds, these capacitors play a crucial role in ensuring the optimal functionality of ceiling fans.

Included in the package is a singular unit of CBB61 capacitor configured at 4.5uf+5uf+6uf, complete with 5 wires. This component promises durability, precision, and compatibility, serving as an essential component for maintaining and repairing ceiling fan systems with efficiency and effectiveness.

How do I know if this capacitor is compatible with my ceiling fan?

The easiest way to answer this is, compare the existing capacitor and the new capacitor like for like. The resistance and voltage needs to be the same as your existing capacitor, as well as the number of wires. There’s a few ways to figure this out. You can consult the manual for your ceiling fan to determine the ohm and voltage values of the existing capacitor in your fan. If that is not an option, you could call the manufacturer to ask if the new part is compatible.

Finally, if you’ve disassembled and have the old capacitor in your hand, you can read the values from that in order to determine the ohm and voltage values that are required. You’ll also then be able to see the exposed wires to determine if the number of existing wires matches this new capacitor (five wires).
