So this will be my last attempt to fix AP: it's the same story, hit the time machine switch and the capacitor blows up.

Tried looking for loose coils, loose metal around coils, but it has something to do with that time machine switch.

Could it be the relay boards, they have to get replaced? The time machine switch itself is bad?

Any help will be appreciated because I am getting fatigued of sodering the same capacitor.

Thanks!

I think Adj. #55 is the one you want here; try disabling it . . .

Blows a capacitor? Or do you mean blows a transistor?

Update: So the motor for the time machine is off: soldered in a new capacitor. Everything is back together, except left slightshot (easy fix). So far, AP is working with no smoke. I think the motor for the time machine maybe the culprit after all this time.
