This is my Pansonic F-M14C7 ceiling fan controller board. The fan goes out of control few days ago. I can't control the fan speed as well as turn off the fan using remote control.
A friend on mine told me to change one of the capasitor. So, I just took a wild guess. It must be the black one.
I print this photo and went to electronic spare part shop and ask for this capasitor. Unfortunately the capasitor information on the printout is not enough. The sales person told me there's another information printed on top of this capasitor.
Realized that I'm a bit frustrated, the shop guy take one capasitor, put it in front of me and say "This capasitor might work for your fan, but I cannot guarantee. If you willing to try, take for 4 ringgit". I agree with him, handed him 4 ringgit and bring the capasitor home.
Ok, this is how it look after I replace the capasitor. And yes... it's working. My Pansonic F-M14C7 ceiling fan is back on the ceiling.
Photo of the original capasitor. It's a Metallized Polyester Film Capacitor. You can search on Google using "ECQUL 40/100/21" keywords. I believe the sales person is looking for the .82uf value. The one that he gave me is 1.0uf.
I'm happy that my fan is still working. Save me a few hundred ringgit.
