    i have a cooker hood to repair, it is single phase 230V, the start/run capacitor has melted.
    the motor and other components are in full working order this capacitor just needs replacing.
    it has a value of 4μF rated at 250V

    i dont have the same one to hand but i do have a 4μF 250V capacitor out of a fluorescent fitting.

    these capacitors are different in physically, but do have the same values.
    am i right in saying the fluorescent fitting capacitor will be OK to use
    as a replacement?

    thanks in advance!

    Yes, since the fluorescent capacitor have the same spec's and is made for 100% duty across the mains I figure it'll do nice supplying the motor.

    Just be careful physically when installing substitute. You don't want the fan shakiing it
    loose, touching something it shouldn't.
