The split phase motor has no starting capacitor,
only a start winding that is
disconnected from the line, once the motor
reaches about 75% speed. This motor has
limited applications due to its low
starting torque, and high starting current
characteristics. Loads that require
high torque, or start slowly, are poor
applications for this motor, due to the
excessive heating when starting. This also means
that high cycling loads should be
avoided. The split phase motor is
suitable for fans, blowers, small grinders and
other low starting torque loads.
