I ordered an inline blower motor that runs off of 12V 6A found here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0166S2PA2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
So I decided to buy a 12V 8 Amp AC to DC adapter for the motor, 8 Amps to give it room for Its startup current, found here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Quality-12V-DC-8A-8-amp-96W-POWER-Supply-ADAPTER-Transformer-for-LED-Strip-CCTV/164220904080?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
When I originally hooked this inline blower motor up straight to a 12V car battery, I tested it with an “amp clamp” and It pulled 0.3 Amps, even on start up, But when I hooked it up to the 12V 8 Amp AC to DC adapter for inside use it turns on for a split second and then turns off continuously like there’s an over current regulator in the adapter.
Would a capacitor work for this inline blower motor and how would I size it without getting to much overcurrent to the motors windings or blowing out a capacitor from it being the wrong sized capacitor?
A 10 Amp fuse was required by the inline blower motor manufacuter and installed.
