I just broke my sewing machine (it's an old Viktoria machine about 30-40 years old) and now I am looking for a replacement safety capacitor. The one installed is a RIFA PME 271 M 547 paper capacitor.
I have looked online and found a replacement on ebay RIFA KONDENSATOR 275V~ SH 47n X2 PME271M 40/100/56/C or this one EVOX RIFA - PME271M547M - CAPACITOR, CLASS X2, 0.047UF.
My problem is, that the old Capacitor has a different number sequence.
It's a bit hard to see but it reads 40/065/56 while all capacitors I found had 40/100/56. I tried to find out the meaning of this values but could not find an answer.
- Is it ok to buy the capacitors I found?
- What do these numbers mean?
Any answer is appreciated
