First, what type capacitor is it? If it looks like a small can, then this will be a polarized canister type. There should be a small band on one side with arrows and probable plus marks. The wire below the can on this side will be the positive side of the cap. Make sure you note where and how you remove it from the circuit as a new one will have to go back in the same order. Look on the side of the can, you should see a number followed with a figure that looks like a 'u' with a line on both sides. This will mean microfared. Which is a unit of measure. (Example. 1000 u ) would mean one thousand microfared. (Micro is a measure for parts of a million). Now note the physical size. Very important since this determines the power handling capability. Do not reinstall a new part that is different. Now you are on your way to a complete repair. Take the old part and try to find a local electronic parts store. You can usually buy an entire pack of these for a few bucks. You can also search online. You may also use a cap of the same type from an old circuit board if one is available. NOW IF THE CAP IS A SMALL CERRAMIC TYPE, this one will look like a small round disk, usually light brown in color. This one can be reinstalled in either direction. It is not polarized. There should be a number on one side, (example: 1000 u) .the size also matters just like the can type. Replace with identical type. If no number is present, take the part to your local electronics store. (Radio Shack for example). If this fails, I would go on line and find the manufacture of the product. You may also search REPAIRCLINIC.COM they carry a large line of parts. Hope this helps.
