Default Elu mof 11 suppression capacitor

I have an old elu mof 11 that has recently gone kaput. I want to replace the suppression capacitor but the one that is in there has no markings. Anybody have any idea what value I should be looking for? I have done an extensive web search but so far come up with nothing. Any help would be gratefully received.
thanks, Andy

An open circuit suppressor capacitor won't stop a motor from working and a short circuit one will blow a fuse or blow the cap. up! Around 0.01µ farad at higher than mains voltage would be normal.
