That pretty much confirms my thinking. The one thing that I hate with this one is that we had a bad electrical storm a few days before it quit.
I'm hoping this doesn't mean I've got more damage here than the caps. I'm also from the "Old Days", where most of the bad caps I saw were on computer motherboards, and those never seemed to blow out the bottoms; they usually bulged and began to leak out the tops.
Pics attached now. The caps I'm looking at are the yellow ones; the dust on the base looks like it's got something holding it in place. If the owner of the unit was a smoker, I'd associate that with the residue, but she is not.
