****New update new pictures!**** Ok I took the voltage meter to both of my capacitors and got no voltage from either. However in the photos they are in tact and have not blown. Before I end up buying a whole new ceiling fan, I would like to save a bit of money and buy replacement capacitors The only problem is I have searched for hours trying to find an exact duplicate capacitor and couldn't find anything close. Can I order a different capacitor and what would I need to look for in order to supply the correct voltage?
I have a ceiling fan in my master bedroom that I have been having a problem with that I cannot diagnose. As of late, every time I flip the switch to turn it on, it starts spinning really really really slow, and then after a while I will hear some sort of click or knock noise and then the fan starts spinning normally. However, after 20 minutes or so, I hear that same same click or knock noise and it slows down extremely slow. It's now at the point that, when I turn it on, it won't do anything! I'm not sure how old this fan is and I don't want to get a new one especially if this is just a cheap part fix. Any ideas?
