Question about Broan-NuTone Dryers
Maybe: If you can manually rotate the motor to get it started.
The capacitor is on start winding, and causes sudden release of amps that starts the motor.
There are two (or four) windings in each single phase motor.
Both receive power at same time.
One winding is the start winding, which can be considered 'low gear' on a transmission. The capacitor is on this winding and gives burst of enough power to begin rotation.
So when a motor just hums, and doesn't rotate, then the start winding and/or capacitor are suspect. Dry or worn bearings are suspect too.
The other winding is the run winding that brings motor to up to speed.
On fan motor, the run winding can have multiple connection points for selecting different speeds.
