Ceiling Fan Capacitor

I have a 5 wire ceiling fan capacitor 5/6/4.25. I cannot find one of these anywhere. Is there something that I can use instead?

Welcome to the forums.

4.25uf is an odd value. I would consider trying a 4.5, 5, 6 uf cap.

This place has just about every fan cap made.... ceiling fan capacitors, 5 wire

I control the speed with a pull chain.
