Replace them with 30uF 250v.

And use a poly cap instead of electrolytic (they age much better, electrolytics don't age well).

I have heard of this issue with the OEM 100Volt caps
Simple fix.
Use the same value cap and go with a 400volt-600volt
Example
Current Cap = 18mfd/100volt
Replace with = 18mfd/400volt
You can do the same with inductors
Same value inductor at a lower gauge wire/winding.

Thanks fellas. All pretty straight forward and budget friendly solutions/suggestions.
