I got a replacement motor from tascam, popped it in and. . . same damn problem which means its not the motor itself, must be the caps or a chip. the caps make sense tho.

where do you buy your capacitors?

mouser has too high a minimum, digi key doesnt have what I need. I dont trust a cap off ebay for anything especially if its obviously been pulled from something else. Heres what im having trouble finding:

.1uf 400v
.03uf 600v

suggestions?
