Electrical capacitor

I have an old Craftsman bench sander Model 351.226711 which no longer has a listing of parts. It has managed to melt the motor capacitor and it looks like a glob of aluminim.
This capacitor is 16mF 250W 125VAC it is 1 and 5/8" long and a dia of 1 and 3/8" (anything +or- 1/2 inch will work)Tol is +10% -5% i guess the original mfg was YUHCHANG and i only need one. I cant find anyone that can get this item for me or even wants to talk to me about this item. Any suggestions short of scrapping the sander. Thanks

Check ebay or google "motor start 10uf 125" You can you any voltage equal to or higher than the original. You should try to match the capacity value - 10uf. I saw a 10uf 440VAC on ebay. It must be VAC (volts AC) not VDC (volts DC) rating

The only thing is that as voltage goes up so does size. If you do not have to match size that is not a problem. You can always mount the capacitor close by and run leads to it.
