first,the "starter cap" has no contacts,in fact its the EXACT opposite; it has insulators and is not supposed to show continuity,second the grand idea of wrapping the body of the cap with FRICTION tape is to prevent vibration and slipping of the clamp that is then used to secure the capacitor to the cabinet of the machine,or motor frame,whichever the case may be.  and last,but not least, you never did reveal to us what the actual problem was- the motor or transmission is kinda vague- just what did cause that poor catlyst to see an early grave??

I tried dealing with this problem on my machine too . The troubleshooting guide pointed in item 4 of the diagmnostic list pointed to a bad control board. However due to the high cost of the part and the uncertainy of whether it would really be the fix , I bought a low end mechanical timer machine . However the Catalyst machine is sitting in my garage and I would like to eventually get it operation inexpensively now that I have the time. Any details on replace the relays on the board ? -
Thanks
