I am fixing my mom's flat hair iron, I already figured out that problem is in one capacitor which should be 470nF, but currently has only 200nF capacity. It is rated for 400V, but I do not know whether it is DC or AC.
I am confused. I googled that sort of capacitor and somewhere it is described as DC capacitor. But it is used as AC in this case, right?
So, is this capacitor DC or AC? Or what type of capacitor it is? I have to find proper replacement.
According to comments and answers, this capacitor is polyester (or polypropylene), with rating 400V DC.
