Default Blown Capacitor in Peavey CS-400

I have emailed parts@peavey.com for help getting a replacement capacitor, but no response. Does anyone know what kind of capacitor I need and where I can buy one, either locally in Metro Detroit, MI or online.

Details:

CAPACITOR TECHNOLOGY
FAO 2593 85 Deg C
10000 MFD 75 WVDC
FAO103G075ED1H
8529 460 F
70320032

Thanks,

Martin

I deal with Peavey all the time with commercial amplifiers and other gear. I have always received prompt attention.
I would suggest either calling Peavey and getting a hold of their service department or contacting someone like Mouser and giving them the PN off the cap so it can be crossed to another brand.

It would be very easy to go on line punch in the cap size, pick one of the same rating and puchase it. It sounds like you are talking about a power supply cap and therefore I would advise in changing both of them. I am assuming there is only 2 and not a bank of them.

I'm not an electronics or amp expert at all. First time I've ever really opened anything like this. Great way to learn There are two of them. The only id on the top is C5. Is that what you mean by the cap size?

Can you recommend a site that I could go to so I can "punch in the size"?

Sorry, I guess I should have explained.

You will need to know the cap diameter,height, working voltage, how many mfd, and mounting type. Example of mounting type is it soldered to the PC board or is it a screw terminal? When you know the answer to these questions you can call Mouser and talk to a sales person or go on line and find a suitable replacement pair.

Post a picture please

Is Mouser a store? Do you have a number?

As for the capacitor, what makes you think it's blown?

Good point there..... I went on the assumption that the cap was bad instead of asking the obvious question how do you know..

If the capacitor is blown the rectifier could shorted and caused it. It is also worth resoldering around the power supply, stuff that gets thrown around can work loose and get dry joints. Is the fuse bown?

Has a hole in it! An oily residue has also leaked out.

Is the fuse blown?

No... I opened the cover and turned it on. Every 10 seconds or so there was an electrical arcing from the capacitor.

The pic should be attached correctly this time!
