Questions & Answers

What is the troubleshooting procedure to determine if the capacitor is bad? Symptom, press button, motor does not start. Ran fine for 2 years then dead all of the sudden. The switch ohms out fine.
JMB for model number Homelite Electric Log Splitter UT49103 asked on 2019-11-14
Hi JMB, you can test a capacitor with a multi-meter. Always discharge a capacitor before testing it. set the meter to read in the high ohms range, somewhere above 10k and 1m ohms. Touch the meter leads to the corresponding leads on the capacitor, red to positive and black to negative. The meter should start at zero and then moving slowly toward infinity. This means that the capacitor is working. If the meter stays at zero, the capacitor is not working. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

The motor on my log splitter would not run
I checked the motors capacitor with a multimeter and it was defective. I removed the old capacitor from the switch box and hooked the wires to the new one. Motor runs fine now.

Tool Type:
Log Splitter
Parts Used:
Capacitor - 099077001038
Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
1-2 hours
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Wire strippers, soldering iron, heat gun
Replacement part is stranded wire with no blade connectors. Log splitter requires correct size blade connector to insert into power distribution board.
1. Removed six screws from cover using Phillips #2.
2. Loosened screw using very small flat blade that releases the blade connector. Unfortunately only the screw securing the red wire would turn. After realizing it required blade connectors that I did not have I decided to cut the old wire and leave its blade connector in place.
3. Used wire strippers on old wire (replacement wire is already stripped).
4. Placed heat shrink wrap that I had in garage onto new wire.
5. Soldered old and new wires together.
6. Slid heat shrink wrap over the connections and carefully used heat gun to shrink the wrap without melting the adjacent plastic housing (pretty tight real estate but doable if you are careful).
7. Overlapped heat shrink-wrapped with electrical tape.
8. Carefully placed new capacitor in housing, replaced cover and six screws using philllips #2.

I supplied my own heat shrink wrap, solder, and electrical tape.

Log splitter is working like new. I have split hours of wood in freezing and warm weather with no problems. I recommend this capacitor. You can save a lot of time if you remove the faulty capacitor and obtain the correct size blade connectors for the replacement part.

Bad Capacitor
We acquired a log splitter that didn't work. We trouble shot it online and figured out that the capacitor was bad which fits in the electrical control box on the splitter. We ordered the replacement part from ereplacementparts.com as they have the best price and the service was great. We received the part very quickly and had the log splitter working in no time. To replace the capacitor. Remove the cover on the power box, then disconnect the old capacitor and remove it. Connect the new capacitor, then reattach the cover. The capacitor seems to be the main problem with these log splitters when they won't work. A simple fix. We appreciate the good price and the fast shipping we received from ereplacementparts.com

Tested capacitor with a couple different meters. One read good the other got random results. Cleaned all connections in electrical housing and disassembled the breaker to clean contacts. Changed hydraulic fluid. Finally ordered and installed a new capacitor and it runs like new.

    Perfect
    Just what I needed. Slow to get here but was out of stock as was everywhere else. Good price.

    Excellent service on all counts
    The capacitor arrived within the week, was the correct part I needed, and installation was simple. My log splitter is up and running again. Ordering the part here and installing it myself saved me a more expensive repair at the shop.

    Great parts
    Great Prices, and fit the log splitter just fine. Capcitor wasn't as same as the original part looking at it, but worked just fine If someone didn't know much about electronics, might get confused as the original capacitor had a red and black wires, where the replacement had 2 black wires. The electrical case was a great fit. Will buy again, thanks for the great service and fast shipping.

    Got a used part when ordered new
    Not only was it used and I had to get a return number for it but I had to order another one and they charged my credit card for both. And have to wait for them to credit me back for the one i returned. If they expect it returned new and unused they maybe they should send out new ones. I'd you have old ones to sell then it should be stated so and at a lower price than new.
