.047 mFd. Not an electrolytic. Replace with a 630 volt axial film or metallized polypropylene cap.
uF = microfarad. WV = working voltage.

Careful... Today's convention is uFd Don't go sending them off looking for millifarads. Original part is uFd, and your explanation is normally enough, but the mFd designation should just die.....
