I am repairing a Haier RF-5210-11 refrigerator power control board; found this damaged capacitor. The circuit board has a "RTC" designation on it at the capacitor location, and the capacitor itself is only labeled with 005 04. I cannot find any information on the specs for this capacitor so I can replace it. Any one have information on this capacitor?
This part limits the inrush current to the input capacitors of a switching power supply. These capacitors draw large current when power is applied and will get warm due to power dissipation. When they fail they will leak and swell, forming a low resistance. The same value is commonly used in laptop power supplies.
Be sure to check for a bad MOV surge suppressor. These normally fail shorted but with replacing the fuse several times they have been known to read as a open.
