    My Time Capsule died due to a dead PSU, and Apple graciously replaced it with a refurb unit even though the warranty expired 12 months ago.

    How do I get my MBP to ignore the old backups and do a new backup from scratch on the refurb device, which I configured with the same name and etc?

    Just start a backup. You may need to select the Time Capsule as the target volume in Time Machine again, but it will start a backup from scratch if there is no backup on the target disk.
