I'm not sure the magical workings of it, but basically you add a second capacitor on the hot line and it interplays with the stock capacitor. Basically I get 80 volts at the line into the fan past the added capacitor. The voltage is line across that cap (which is good), fan runs slow, fan runs cool. All is well.
