How to tell if capacitor is bad
You will need a meter that reads capacitance or microferads.
the capacitor will have it's rating and range printed on the side.
For instance, if you have a 35 microferad capacitor, and it has a + or - 10% range, the capacitance reading would need to be between 31.5 and 38.5.
If the capacitor is leaking or swollen, then it is obviosly bad.
Make sure you disconnect the power first, then discharge the capacitor, (using a screw driver touch both terminals together.) and remove the wires from the terminals before testing with the meter or you will get false readings.
