When is it cold. Resistance is lower. From what I gather, you need to check the inrush current for the motor.
If the capacitor was bad to start with…. Why after a few attempts it starts up the motor? Each attempt slowly charges the capacitor? It is unlikely. I would suspect that the age of the motor is the issue. Anyway to be sure you would need to check the inrush current first. Use a clamp current meter. //I have not tried this product before. It is a suggestion
