  1. Can I get rid of a motor's capacitor and operate it safely with a motor speed contol?

    I have a 120 V, AC motor, 5.5 Amp that has a capacitor on it and I want to control it's speed with this controller (The Speedster) but the capacitor overheats. Would it be safe to operate this motor without the capacitor to avoid overheating it?
