Can I purchase this part and replace it myself.
Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.
You can get the part from your local appliance parts store. It is about 150 dollars. You need to remove the outer shell of the unit. It is on the right hand side. It is square. It is screwed in with a couple wires. Just do not touch the capacitor. It is next to the mag it is a oval shaped cannister. It holds voltage and is dangerous.
