Could someone please help me identify this capacitor value and maybe where to buy the equivalent?

Any identification, markings, physical size, colour, application, photo, etc?

Sorry. I've put a link in my original post. It's for an ac motor for an inline fan.

Looks like a starter cap for a motor.

 

2uF, non-electrolytic (non-polarised), 500vAC

 

 





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Is the capacitor across the motor terminals, or in series ?  like:  ----||---M ---

 

Where || is the capacitor, and M is the motor

 

Could even be a suppressor capacitor

Cheers. Non polarised meaning I can't screw up the polarity putting one back in? Any idea who carries these?

One leg was soldered to the board and marked V1 and the other went straight to the motor.

Cheers. They had one in stock so I'll give it a try.

go to a electrical suppler it will be cheaper than rs, also that looks like a 2uf run/start cap which should be off the shelf, and as stated by many other people it is not polarised what soever so easy to replace
