In a message dated 97-05-30 14:40:38 EDT, you write:
My suspicion is that the caps you got had some type of latent defect
which caused them to short out. The most probable cause is entrapped
deep inside the capacitor roll(s). After a period of extended running,
the localized heating and chemical degradation of the dielectric/oil
causes a failure.
It's certainly worth discussing with CP to see if they'll do anything
for you. You've got absolutely nothing to lose at this point! If they
won't, I'd check out Plastic Caps. The construction technique of the
latter is, in my opinion, superior to that of CP.

Thanks. Both of my failed C.P. caps have been sent back to the factory
failure analysis. Will keep everyone posted.
