First, let me introduce myself, as i'm a new Tower-talker. I'm Laurent - F1JKJ, located in south of France. Sorry for limited english. French "no-code" hams have been authorized on HF bands a few monthes ago, and as i bought a new house in september, i now have a (little) garden for an antenna. I've got a 12meters (~36feet) tower and a KLM KT34 in the garden, and i'm planning to get it erected in a few weeks.
About the rotator: It's a Kenpro 5600 i used a few years ago on satellites. In fact, it's a combination of KR600 (azimuth) and KR500 (evelation). I'll use the KR600 alone.
As it didn't turn, i've disassembled it to see what happened. I have two problems with it: With the motor cap, and with the motor itself.
Motor cap: The cap is located in the rotor itself. I've read recent messages about running/starting motor cap, but i still don't get it: What's the use of that cap ? On the schematics i found, the cap is labelled "100µF, 63V". OK for the values, but i'm in trouble with the type of capacitor. I guess it's not polarized, right ? But if i'm looking for another 100µF 63V not polarized cap, it's ridiculously small compared to the one that i want to replace !
Motor itself: You can have a look on
for a photo of the motor. On the top of it, there's a white pinion. Under this pinion, a system that i can't understand. Has someone here ever disassembled this kind of motor, and is able to help me ?
