Hi everyone,
Very easy one for all you experts.

my wife’s sewing machine blew up earlier. I have traced it to a popped capacitor but have no idea where to get a replacement from. I know very little about electronics but can use a soldering iron like a demon.

if someone could tell me what it is I need to buy and where to buy it, I will be eternally grateful as you will have saved me from hearing about it for the next 3 months.
distance between pins is 15mm


thanks in advance,

If you live in the US, you may want to look at the following:
From BG Micro:
https://www.bgmicro.com/film-capacitor-1uf-310vac-10-x2-vishay.aspx

From Newark:
https://www.newark.com/panasonic/ecq-u2a104ml/capacitor-polyester-film-0-1uf/dp/01M7582?st=100nf x2
https://www.newark.com/vishay/bfc233820104/capacitor-polypropylene-pp-film/dp/74K3513?st=100nf x2

BG Micro tends to have lower shipping costs, but Newark has a bit lower prices. You probably need to go through the purchase process to know exactly how much it will cost for you.

I am usually a customer of both companies, but have no relationship to them.

BTW, as @AlbertHall said, the X2 specification is important.
