My unit was freezing/not recording so I replaced the two capacitors and everything is normal again. Thanks to hankw69! I ended up with one 85 degree capacitor, anyone see issues with that?

Just be prepared to replace it sooner. Since one failed in that location in the circuit already, obviously it is in a higher stress operating condition.

Well, 85 degrees Celsius is equivalent to 185 degrees Fahrenheit, and I hope your unit gets nowhere near that hot.

Not just the ambient temperature, but the internal operating temperature of the capacitor that causes some to expand and puff out the top or push the rubber gasket out the bottom, others dry out and fail. Higher temp 105°C caps last longer in those conditions.
