What side of a capacitor is positive? The positive or anode side of the capacitor is marked with a “+” symbol. Since electrolytic capacitors are polarized, I use a symbol (shown below) on my schematics. Schematic symbol for polarized capacitors as shown in Eagle.
Does it matter which way you wire a capacitor? A basic two terminal motor start or runCapacitor is not polarity sensitive. It does not matter which wire goes to which terminal.
How do you connect a negative and positive capacitor?
What happens if you install a capacitor backwards? In case of reverse connection, the capacitor will not work at all and if the applied voltage is higher than the value of capacitor rating, the larger leakage current will start to flow and heat up the capacitor which lead to damage the dielectric film (the aluminum layer is very thin and easy to be broken) as compared
