I think upsizing the breaker is asking for problems, it’s probably sized to the wiring and putting a higher capacity one in may lead to problems. But those caps can be easily tested…or if you don’t want to test, simply buy a new one. They are fairly cheap….I think I paid less than $10 for the last one I bought. Or, a motor shop could test it for you. I do think starting it up without the belt(s) on may help with the diagnosis.
