Default Ceiling fan capacitors

Got a bad cap. Went to the big box stores where I had seen replacement
caps before, and no one carries them. Searched on line, and all I can
find is large oval HVAC type units. WTH happened to the blisterpacked
replacement ceiling fan caps? Anyone know of a source (4.7 - 5 uF, 370
wvdc,)?

Thanks,
DP

heat and a/c
unit I service use 5 uf 370 v.

Yea, I checked into the HVAC units- they're too big to fit in the fan
housing. Most of the HVAC types are around 2 x 2 x 1. The ceiling fan
jobs are around 1x1x1/4.

Check www.mouser.com for these caps.

I found this one:

Ask them about actual size of this cap.

Try this site...

Call and ask the dimensions. If that doesn't help then you might try
checking the brand name and Google from there...good luck...
