Thanks again, I looked into it and it is definitely some sort of "motor start" capacitor, so I'd imagine it works in the way you describe. Worth replacing anyway one would think. Where to get one the same as it though?
OK, new questions then, could a dodgy capacitor on the display units' circuit board cause memory loss, (ie; loss of data)???
Still interested if anyone can shed light on that big capacitors ACTUAL useage or what it is protecting?
(if not the entire electronic system)
Always happy to learn, I should actually know this stuff but my technological studies class way back at school consisted more of flying E&L boards than completed circuits. Not me though, I like learning stuff like this.
