Can anyone help identify this type of capacitor?  The  capacitor is labeled 2X4700.  It looks like a normal 2 legged disc capacitor but I have never seen the 2X designation.  Does this identify it as a type of safety capacitor?  The schematic shows the same designation.  Thanks for any help.

It seems to be a three-legged capacitor, i. e. two 4,7 nF capacitors in one package. The 2X should be read out as "two times 4700 pF".

When replacing it, i would recommend two Y2 classed safety capacitors.

Thank you, you are absolutely correct.  I moved some wires around and found the 3rd leg.  It was hidden well!  Much appreciated.
