Could someone tell me what this capcitor is? Is it a 0.1UF,250Volt, 10%. ?
That's how I read it. But I am no electrician.
Yes. .1uf, 250 volt.
104 means 10 followed by 4 0s, with the value in pF (picofarads). So 104 is 100,000pF = 100nF = 0.1uF
The K means a tolerance of +- 10%.
Or you could look up the code here: https://www.electronics2000.co.uk/calc/capacitor-code-calculator.php
And the conversion here: https://www.justradios.com/uFnFpF.html
iC = Illinois Capacitor and MSR is the type "radial lead metallized polyester"
There's a useful chart of different values here
