Ceiling Fan Capacitor

I have a Casablanca Bel Air fan, When the fan starts it makes noise, after power off it's silent. I'm going to try and change the capacitor. Is this yellow guy SH-CAP the motor capacitor? I was looking for a black box looking guy but couldn't see it.

Casablanca fans are not set up like most ceiling fans. They use custom motor switching for fan speeds. That is a mylar power supply capacitor in the picture. They don't often go bad.

Grrr, so is it that "BFR"?
Can I use multimeter and change that, or just buy new board?

Does any1 know how to tell what the number on these green resistors are? Do you have peel on apart? One works the other doesn't.

Thx in advance

Are there numbers on the resistors ?
The newer replacement board uses the following resistances.......

The J2-J3 right side resistor is 3.9k ohm 10 watt.
Left side resistor.....430 ohm 10 watt.

The resistors are checked with an ohmmeter. They don't open.

No there's no numbers on the resistors or board.
I think I'm going to buy from the guy who sells Casablanca boards parts online. So I can ask him what type they are he should know.
This project is turning into murder.
