MY 1000 Watt True Sine Power Inverter blew a 25V 47uf capacitor. The shell was rattling around inside, and the ribbons were exposed. Yay, I found the problem! Sooooo, how can I tell the mounting polarity in order to replace the blown cap?
ALSO, would it be a silly idea to replace that cap with FIVE 60V 10uf caps in parallel (I have these available) essentially making a single 60V 50uf cap? ... or should I just buy a direct replacement?
Wondering what effect the slight variation in capacitance might have.
I'm kind of a novice, but the smoke is already out...what can I lose :P
Thanks in advance :)
