But not hence your complete failure to answer the questions you were asked here. Nobody except you has posted anything that suggests, or calculates, that there is anything like what you are claiming here. 505V B+ does not and cannot possibly imply 509V across every capacitor in this circuit, and specifically not the two 250V-rated ones. It is impossible. Hence the questions. Test and measure, and answer what you're asked. Instead of going off at a tangent and asking a whole lot of different questions.

Here is the schematic for others reference. The OP referred to C3 and C6 in post #24. If B+ peaks at 505V then C3 and C6 would each see half of that, which is likely OK for a short term surge for 250V capacitors. Although I don't know why he still hasn't put a multimeter across each cap to prove it for himself.

Thank you Tikiroo !
The reason i havent measured the individual caps with a multimeter is simple ...i haven't been home ..I am often away working.

Thank you Tikiroo for confirming what i though must be the case seeing the last two caps in the original circuit are only 250 volts.

It seems a bit absurd that finally, 12 days after the original question was posed, we were presented with a schematic, not by the OP but by another member, so that we could see what C3 and C6 actually are, and so the question could be answered.

As always, a schematic is worth a thousand words...

It is also considerably more than 'a bit absurd' that of all the people who answered the question or sought clarification, only the last is thanked. What a waste of everybody's time. Is there a kill-file feature here?
