I found a cbb61 in about 10 seconds 5,5,4.5uf the same as you have for 6.29$ the wire colors may be different but that's not a problem it has 2 gray wires on the one side but you don't have to use both, just wire nut the extra off or put both under the same nut. On a 120v circuit 250v will be fine.

  • Does it have to be 5,5,4.5 or can it be 4.5,5,5?
