Typically, when a cap goes, it goes quick.. but you could pull it and test with a meter pretty easily. I’d be more inclined to think that it might be a bearing problem given the age of the machine.. try turning it by hand to see if you feel resistance or hear noises.. take the belt off if it has one and try that way. Scotsman also brings up a good question.. what size circuit are you running that saw on and how much does it draw and do you have anything else running on it?
