The capacitor is a cheap enough part to replace but it can be an early warning sign before you end up with motor damage. If there is a problem with the set-up but you just keep replacing the capacitor every year then eventually it will also burn out the motor.

Did you buy the machine locally and could you take it in for them to try a new capacitor?

Do you have any information on the extension lead? Cable thickness, amp rating or watts?
How long is the extension lead and do you fully unwind it before use or leave excess cable wound up on the drum?

It's never about trying to find blame and pin a problem on something like an extension lead if it sounds like I am, its about making sure you don't have repeat problems or more serious problems once we have got this issue solved.

Thanks for the information. I bought my machine from elite car care but I'm based in Northern Ireland.
As for the extension lead it probably didn't help as it is only a short household one probably around 3 meters long.
How much is the capacitor and is it easy enough replaced?

The part number for the capacitor is: 411144 and is around £30+Vat.

If you contact Elite and confirm price, I am sure he can get one to you.

The capacitor is simple to replace, its just two wires into a connecting block.
