I must admit that I haven't had to replace a leaking cap on any of the 600s or the one 1200 that I have, but its a different story for PC motherboards where they have swelled and either the top of the can starts to give or the rubber seal on the underside starts to come out. These are generally the larger sized radial caps, especially around the processor socket, you do get the odd smaller ones now and then too. Fractures in the solder in PC power supplies around component legs is another common problem.

Sooner or later though, I will change the caps on my Amigas, but only when things start to go wrong and they do need sorting.
