    im fixing a smd rework station. I found a bad triac that was preventing the heating element from working. I also found 2 capacitors with an ESR of over 9 ohms. I was able to find one of them im my parts bin and replace it, but I have a question about the other one. the capacitor(C6) is a 1uF 50V, but the silk screen on the circuit board says that C6 is 10uF 16v. the unit was working just fine before the triac blew, but if I don't have a 1uf, can I sub in anything between 1uF and 10uF assuming the voltage rating is matched?
