I suggest that in all fairness, the entire time that Condenser 
Products Co. had your capacitor for evaluation testing should be 
deducted from your one year warranty time.  This should put you back 
under warranty, and, if that's true then they should make things right.

I wouldn't have been so quick to send them more money if this 
previous account was unsettled.  If you are in the right, be firm!  
The only hero that will champion your own interests is YOU.
