I think you got off real lucky there.
I was working in the shop one day with my DC tucked into a corner on the far side of the garage when my run capacitor burst into flames (Delta DC).
I sprayed it down with a chemical fire extinguisher and managed to get to it before any damage occurred. Freaked me out big time.
At any rate, I was able to order a replacement from some tool parts dealer on the net. Found the part number in the instruction manual, IIRCC.
Pretty easy to fix....
