{Collins} Re: 30S-1 Capacitor Leaking



Lawrence,

Take some steel-wool and clean and wash the area around the leak. You should find the leak between the top-cover seal along perimeter of the "can." You will see the leak after you clean it. Take a soldering iron and re-solder the seam around the leak. Wipe the leak to get a good seal.

I did the following a few years ago and it's still good measured on my Fluke 110. You can also test the cap by disconnect it, but remove the 4CX1000A. Voltage should be much higher without the cap.

Plastic Capacitor WILL make replacements on volume orders, only. Problem here is that they're not tested in a 30S-1 service.

Stu, k2qde
