To steveplane. You had emailed me for additonal info. Sorry, but I never got mine up and running. I was unsuccessful at identifying the capacitor in question, and was unable to purchase one at any electronics store, including Radio Shack. Sorry I couldn't be of help. I suggest for you to refoward or repose your questions to Zexxal?

Yes, you can get a 50 watt capacitor from Radio Shack and put it in yourself. It cost me $ 1.45 for a package of 2. Just ask them for a 50 watt capacitor
Just be careful when you remove the board, it holds a charge for a little while. I know from experience 8-)
Just take a small soldering pencil and remove the old one, then add the new one. You can get everything you need from Radio Shack for under $20 bucks. (if you have nothing to work with (solder, iron, capacitors Etc)
One hint, be careful with removing and adding the new one, don't burn or scrap the board and make sure when you add the new one not to put to much solder on the connections. Before you put the board back in, verify that you did not leave any solder on the board or cross the connections with the solder.
Believe me, this unit is very easy to work on and you should not have any issues.
Good luck. Hope this works for you.
Let me know if you need any additional information.
