Unfortunately I only have 15A circuits available until I wire up the garage. I thought about dropping a 20a breaker in, but it’s only got 12 gauge wire so that could be dangerous. I guess I need to expedite the garage wiring project. I’ve been looking for sources for replacement motors, and ran across some posts about the run capacitor being a possibility for this type of issue. I took the cover off and that cap smelled like burned electronics. Maybe I’ll get lucky on this one. I figure it’s worth the $5 try before looking at a new motor. I forgot to mention that this one is one of the old blue ones, donuts got some mileage.
