I'm working on my Majestic 7B09A, my first full restoration. As I am going through the unit doing a recap, I have run across a capacitor that I think is the dreaded "death cap", but I'm not sure. It's C14 (.1 uf, 250 volt), which the Photofact lables as a "Line Isolation" capacitor. It's tied between chassis ground (as is one side of the input AC) and B-, with a 220K resistor across it. I'm attaching the schematic for reference and I've circled the section in question.
I'm thinking this cap needs to be replaced with a Safety Cap. I researching them, it appears that only X2 caps come in the .1 value, which would make this application "across the line". However, the connection to B- is causing me confusion, as this point is the only reference to B- and uses the Earth Ground symbol, which is used throughout the rest of the chassis circuitry.
Is B- actually a DC circuit ground point and the .1 cap is providing noise filtering between it and the AC line?
Man, I've got a lot to learn, but this is so much fun!
