Removed the electric motor and took it in and had it checked to be sure it hadn\'t caused the problem with the capacitor, and to make sure it was running correctly. Cleaned old capacitor residue out of the switch box, attached the new capacitor to the box and attached the wires. Plugged it in and it works great.

The motor failed to start. I found that the capacitor was faulty. I replaced the capacitor. very easy repair.
Remove screws from switch housing, remove leads from capacitor, remember how they hooked up. Install new capacitor.

Question: Dust Collector Parts
what all is included in the hardware pack for model #AP400 ? I am looking for closeable ports and replacement dust hose.
Reply: Dust Collector Parts
Most hardware packs will include all of the nuts,bolt and other item to assemble the machine. The part number 902185 Hardware Pack will not contain the items you are looking for. You should have a woodworking supplier or hose supplier in your area that could provide the hose you need. You will probably want 4 inch hose and 4 inch blast gates for this dust collector.
Question: Motor Start Up
My dust collector motor is having trouble starting up. Will this capacitor fix the problem?
Reply: Motor Start Up
Well the capacitor could be the problem but you will need to check it first.Any motor shop can do this for you.If it checks out ok then I'd look and the capacitor start switch next.Hope that helps.Good luck.
Reply: Canister Kits?
I am not sure if you are referring to an upper canister filter or a lower canister to collect the large debris. There is a canister filter available to replace the upper filtering bag. You can find more about it at the following link... 2-micron canister filter for Delta AP400 and 50-720.
As for a canister to catch the large debris at the bottom of the collector, Delta does not have an accessory for that. I have seen folks use a cardboard drum and some sheet rubber and clamps to make there own collection drum. The canister is placed beneath the opening on the collector and then the sheet rubber is used to connect the collector to the drum. There are also aftermarket in-line separators that fit over a garbage can. You run your incoming hose to the separator, then a second line goes to the dust collector. The heavy debris stay in the can and only the fine dust moves on to the dust collector. These are available from most specialty woodworking retailers.
I hope this helps!
