Rubber caps on capacitors are a need in LA. We have alot of reptiles and bugs that will climb onto anything warm.If you're too "open" minded, your brains will fall out.

Let us know what the tech says about this, because we are not there to see everything.
Reptiles in LA??
I might want to mount the cap upside down, so reptiles can't get across the terminals, LOL!!!!

Cause of a burned terminal is typically corrosion or failure to tighten the terminal. I've had a few snap when tightening. I use pipe strap to hold capacitors in place when the new cap doesn't fit the old holder. I've seen capacitors walk around the compartment due to vibration, something ugly happens way too often.“I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.
