The start capacitor is toasted, remove capacitor and take to any appliance parts or electrical store for a replacement. Take pictures of the wiring connectors before disconnecting to avoid confusion later. Have them check capacitor, if capacitor is OK, get an electric motor start up kit, it will give your capacitor more power to start up. Costs less than $20. Take with you the motor info, just in case.

Not sure what solved the problem: Took fan section control box apart, used compressed air to blow out both areas. Noticed that on/off switch did not stay stable, but was able to re attach knob. By wiggling connections and plug-in, it did finally start.
There is a sticker that comes in the owner's manual that apparently falls out frequently. I was told that the fill level is two inches below the top edge of the reservoir. I am going to mark mine with a Sharpie since stickers have a tendency to fall of when wet.
On my water wheel several parameters must be met. 1. Power on, cord plugged in. 2. Water in tank, the float arm needs to move to indicate water present, the red light on the dash indicates no water. 3. Humidity controll set higher than the room atmosphere humidity, clockwise is higher on mine. 4. The fan speed selecter must be on either high or low, the fan won't run unless one position is selected. I hope this helps
This humifier has a black drive wheel and a white idler wheel. On mine, the idler wheel froze up which caused the drive wheel to damage itself trying to turn the drum. First, free up the idler wheel and replace the shaft it rotates on. The idler wheel is still available but you'll have to fabricate the shaft using a machine screw and hollow shaft from your local hardware store. When the idler wheel turns freely, the drive wheel (if still in decent shape) can do its job of turning the drum. If not, you can replace the drive wheel (also still available). I recently put a small rubber band in the groove of the drive wheel and it enabled it to get the necessary grip on the drum.
It's getting harder and harder to keep these wonderful Bemis water Wheel humidifiers alive as the years go by. I wish they still made them because no other humidifier comes close.
i realize this answer is a year old; but, i would guess you didn't let the wick become saturated before running. fill the resevoir with water, then let the humidifier sit idle while the wick is saturating. when it is completely saturated, the refill light will go off. refill the resevoir with additional water, as needed. then you can run the humidifier.
