    I want to use a synchronous motor at 120V 50/60Hz. I have a motor that
    I am using right now and it works fine at 60Hz but starts to swing like
    a pendulam at 50Hz. I also tried to use a larger capacitor for 50Hz
    operation but it didnt change the behavior of the motor. Can anyone
    shed some light as to why this might be happening. How large a
    capacitor should be used usually if frequency is switched from 60hz to
    50Hz. Thanks in advance

    Its not the capacitor, its the 50 HZ.

    The manufacturer said that the motor should work at 50/60Hz. Also I
    been told that you can run a motor at 50/60Hz but the speed will be
    5/6th lower compared to at 60Hz which makes sense. Please let me know
    if anyones come across something like this. Thanks............
