The motor in my High Speed Passenger Train set (60051) has stopped working properly. I just put brand new batteries in and it acts just like if they were worn. Moreover, the little brown capacitor inside the assembly gets VERY hot and after just a few seconds of running, the motor stops entirely.
I have a hard time reading the numbers on the capacitor, but I think it says RO40017 70395. I can't find anything on the Internet on that. I was hoping to buy a new capacitor to replace it, since I think it is broken.
So, could it be the capacitor? Might it be the motor? I have tried it directly on the battery pack and I have tried with the 'step' thing and the remote control, both same results: Hot capacitor, motor stops running.
