Started a Thread on the Starting Capacitor for a Frigidaire FPI-13B-62 and submitted today 8-19-2022. The starting capacitor information in one area was not correct, I listed "189 MED" but it actually reads "189 MFD". This seems to indicate the Microfarad rating. So, the actual info on the starting capacitor is as follows: "DELCO 5891100 189 MFD 110 VAC" and in one area it reads: "B-1-62". I first wrote down the information from a side of the capacitor that had a scratch through the MFD and it looked like MED. The photo I took originally of the information that had the scratch did not come out and I had already put the refrigerator back together. The photo I submitted today reads 189 MFD, photo is included in this Thread, but that was not the side I originally took the information from. Again this starting capacitor is 3-3/4 inches tall and 1-3/4 inches in diameter. The starting capacitors I see on the internet that are 110 VAC have a range from 110 VAC to 120 VAC or 125 VAC. These internet starting capacitors also have a Microfarad range. My next question to the Forum is, can this starting capacitor have a range of 110 to 125 VAC and and Microfarad rating between 189 and 227 and still be alright to install and not adversely affect the refrigerator?
