    Hello,
    What about the FD-235F 161-U?
    It has the same symptom but no caps.
    Some help?

    @Greg
    Look closer – the 161-U HAS a cap, namely C75, and that is also the one that leaked on me and also damaged the PCB.

    Can’t edit… here’s a picture: https://imgur.com/a/zD79Z
    Symptoms are that the motor is spinning too fast, so it can’t read anything. Also the motor continues to spin after a disk is removed.

    something´s wrong above? Mine: FD-235F-161-U
    these are NOT 3x ELKO 22µF. there are 3x normal condensators with 22µF used but NOT with polarity (sadly I ordered Elko´s in advance)
    My Elko on the other side (your second picture) is SMD variant named with C67, labeled J335 > measured: 3,54µF

    btw: no C75 as BenTennyso mentioned

    I have the exact same Floppy Drive TEAC FD-235F 114-U.

    Do the 3 capacitors with 22uF have a polarity? When yes, can you tell me where minus has to go?

    This is right for the 4.7uF capacitor. But the 22uF ones not have this marker.

    There is no such marker on the 22uF capacitors. Only on the 4.7uF.

    This marker is only on the 4.7 uF capacitor.
    On the 22uF ones i cannot see a minus marker.

    @ILAH

    You are right, 22uf are electrolytic capacitors non-polarized.
