DO NOT USE an ordinary capacitor. Use only a properly rated safety capacitor.


In my case I used a 0.0022 uF X2 275V metal film capacitor.

WRONG! Quoting from my tutorial on killing noise:

Use only type X1, X2, Y1 and Y2 capacitors, which are specifically rated for AC line use and designed to withstand the 3-6 kV spikes that can occur on power wiring. Choose this capacitor carefully – if it fails, it could catch on fire!
