If it was me, I’d suspect either capacitor or bearings. Bearings are easy to check (does it spin easily?). You can check your capacitor with an ohm meter. It should start with a low resistance and ramp up to infinity. (make sure you short it out when you’re done). If it’s questionable, they’re pretty cheap to replace.
