    if i replace a bad capacitor with a new cap with same capacitance and high voltage than the old one... can anything go wrong ?

    ex: bad cap value is 10MFD & 10V.... i'm going to replace it with 10MFD 50V one.....

    No nothing will go wrong,just keep polarity in mind if the capacitor is polarized.3

    Good Luck

    Checks if the size fits if the space is tight. Its height could be higher than the lower voltage one.
