Help for Jet Motor

Don from Denver
>Am relatively new to turning, (and feeling more so today). I have a Jet 12 inch lathe and had trouble with it starting today. At first if I manually spun the piece it would continue to run. Eventually, sparks flew out of the capacitor and liquid wax seeped from under the cover and I shut it off. I assume I need a new "motor start capacitor" which is what the old one says on its side. I am having trouble finding one with exactly the same specs. Is this a common problem? Do I need to look for other problems that caused the capacitor to burn up? Help!!
