Has one of your common electronic devices stopped working? Electricians know that a faulty capacitor can often be the culprit. Learning to change a capacitor yourself is a great way to learn about basic electrical repair, and it might even prevent you from completely and unnecessarily replacing your favorite set of speakers or camera. Since capacitors can hold an electrical charge, it's important to use a multi-meter or similar voltage detector to ensure that no charge is present in the old capacitor. Once this is complete, you can replace it with a new one using a small soldering iron. Put vintage electronics back into action with a new capacitor.
