    The capacitors that you were using are most likely polarized. You may need to check and see if maybe you connected them up in such a way that their positive terminal was connected to ground and their negative terminal was connected to the 18V power source. Reversing the connection to polarized capacitors will result in destroying the capacitors. This destruction can sometimes be dramatic.

    thoover,

    Did you design the circuit? If so, please provide us with a drawing so we can help you determine what went wrong.
