So it is possibly the bearings that are going? I am curious as to why this would happen only in the cold. Also, I took the belt off and it is still tripping the breaker even with no blade to spin. I suppose that if the caps are not bad, then what is my path forward? I am supposing I can’t replace the bearings myself. Would this mean that the motor is starting to die a slow death?
