    I have several start capacitors from failed control boxes. The start relays burn. Where can I get replacement parts for a Franklin Elec model 2801054915 1/2HP 230V. I only need the relay.....

    Your controller is popping the caps or relays for a reason. Maybe it could just be a relay, but maybe not.

    If you look at the part number on the relay, check E-bay for the best price, or buy it from what you find on Google, You may and should find local. E-Bay's security sucks, local is best.

    It sounds like you may have other problems that may need to be fixed.

    Texas Wellman may be able to help you, If you are in his area. He is good.

    If you are burning start relays and/or start capacitors your pump is starting too much. Research how to eliminate the cycling.
