Default Help with Ceramic Disc Capacitor Numbers

I need to replace this can someone please tell me what I am looking for and where I can buy a replacement. I think this is a disc capacitor. Here is some info, this is attached to an On/Off switch on a Console Stereo, the stereo should turn off when in the Off position but it stays on. The Console stereo should when switched to the Off position turn off BUT if you turn the switch the turntable knob to On the whole unit should come on until the record finishes then the unit will turn back off automatically. So Iam thinking this has something to do with that function. Anyone have any ideas on that? Please see the photos attached. Thanks

It is a 10nF cap. It has to be rated for direct across-the-mains connection, could be a "X" or "Y" safety type (the ones that carry "UL" and and marks).
If you want to avoid too much stress on the capacitor and contacts, you could add a 22 ohm/1W resistor in series.

Hi, I think I have the very same problem. A disc capacitor put on output leads of the main transformer feeding a bulb to signalling operation state. It is soldered on a Bose 901 series IV equalizer board and I need to replace it. Can you help me with proper voltage and farads? Thanks

4.7 nF
Lots of volts.

Use any 4.7 nF X2 film capacitor.
