Default Replacing an Overload/PTC
Model Number: A3316ABS   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years

Troubleshooting down to this component was easy. It smells of burnt dielectric and pieces rattle inside when shaken. Two questions:

1.) Replacing the exact component is pretty easy, but how certain can I be that it wasn't some other condition that caused it to fail in the first place (ie - badly locked rotor)?

2.) The manufacturer's component is pretty expensive. Is it possible to replace this device with a more common one? (ie - 3-in-1 relay)?

Much Thanks!

Mike B
