Hello. Trying to help my parents out and replace 2 capacitors on this board. This board is from a hot tub. I'm not too familiar with the intricacies of capacitors but I can replace them no problem. I just don't know how to choose the correct replacement when the only writing on the capacitors is what you see in the pictures.

Hi,
You can order those two capacitors, with the those values, for replacement.
Do you have enough information to do the repair.?

Yes I watched enough videos on how to swap out a capacitor sol I'm fine with that. But I noticed on this board there is clear waterproof coating over the entire board. Almost like silicone a few mm thick. I guess I'll have to cut around the base of the capacitor with a razor

I replaced both capacitors but the same problem is still present. The unit will power on, successfully run for a short period of time and then shutdown. There are no error codes displayed.

I know this a long shot and I haven't provided much information but I'm open to any ideas on how to troubleshoot.

This board comes from a intex spa. It seems rather common that these units have issued but most of my searching reveals error codes displayed on the screen followed by a shutdown. That can be diagnosed by reading the manual. In my situation, the unit beeps, all the lights illuminate followed by a shutdown of all systems (filter, heater, blower).

The filter is functioning with no obstructions, the heater unit works and the blower works. When I noticed the blown capacitors I hoped for an easy fix.

Any help is appreciated
