Replacing capacitors in older electronics

I was working on a supplementary power supply board in an old arcade cabinet. It has a capacitor with some markings that I was unable to identify and was curious if they were important. Also, I would like any advice that could help me avoid damaging the arcade.

The markings on the capacitor that I am confused by is “CE04 W”. I don’t know if this is just manufacturer specific or what? Accordingly, the rest of the capacitor markings are as follow:

25V 4700uf

85 degrees
