Try googling Ridgid repairs shops in your area.
If you can’t find one try Allen’s Electric in Riverview Florida.

If you can determine the stats on the motor graingers would surely have them but they are a little spendy sometimes, usually after you do enough research to get the correct part number they care pretty easy to find. I have even had good luck by typing the part number in a google window. you will sometimes have to sift thru alot of pages to find the one you want but it works for nearly everything I have ever set out to find.

The caps don’t have to be an identical match in capacitance values….just close (+/- 20% is fine), and they have to fit the physical space available. The voltage ratings have to at least as high as the original. Just about any electrical supplier that sells capacitors should be able to help you, and they generally don’t cost a lot.

If you take it to a local motor shop they will test it for you
and sell you a new one. You won’t get a bargain price,
but you’ll get one that works for your motor.
