Dead Fan Capacitor - Will this replacement work?

Hi,

So I have a burned up fan capacitor (c61 e185116 4.8uf/280VAC + 6uf/250VAC + 6uf/250 VAC) 4-wire, and I am unable to find an exact match to it. The closest I found was a 4-wire 4.8uf/250VAC + 6uf/250VAC + 6uf/250 VAC capacitor (CBB61 E215893).

Will this still work even though it is a 4.8uf/250VAC instead of 4.8uf/280VAC? Or do I need to make sure it's an EXACT match?

Thanks!

If the value is the same but the voltage is lower, it should be OK if running on 120v. If running on 220/240v, it will be pushing it.
Max.

Yup, it's running off 120v and all the values match except for that initial 250v marking. I'll grab that capacitor then and give it a try.

Thank you!
