I believe it is your starting capacitor, It is a long round thing usually black that has two wires, this is what makes it kick on. just us rubber handled pliars when disconnecting the other one. because it holds electricity. You can get one at a hardware or pool supply, usually 10.00 or so...I hope this helps

When turning my Vitamix product on high it runs for about 45 seconds and then it shuts off. I then have to wait another 15 to 20 minutes before I can reuse the product.

It sounds like the motor is overheating, how long will it run with no beaker on it? If still 45 seconds I'd say new motor time. If it runs for 5 or 10 minutes then I would say replace the blade and bearing assembly in the beaker.

Pool Pump Runs Intermittently (~10 seconds on, ~1 minute off)

Need more info. What is the voltage at the pump? What voltage is the pump wired for? Sounds like your pump is shutting down from heat thru a safety. If the voltage is wrong the pump will heat up very quickly and a thermal switch will cut out, it will then cool off and try again. Get the readings at the motor connections NOT the breaker.

Pump will not stay running. motor gets warm. motor shuts down after running for about 10 to 20 seconds.

Check the voltage at the pump while its running. If the electric feed line is too long for the guage wire,
voltage drop will cause the motor to overheat and switch off.

Turns on and in about 10 seconds it shuts off a little piece on the back gets red hot it has a wire going to the capacitor

Guessing the capacitor is probably bad. It sounds like the run capacitor. The motor overheats and the thermal protection circuit shuts it off.

Craftsman 6hp 150psi 30gal won't keep running

It sounds like the internal circuit breaker in the motor is heating up and then the breaker trips to shut down the motor. This is the protection so you don't have a fire if the motor burns up. The smell you have is the coils in the motor. Sorry to say that you will need a new motor for this unit. I hope this helps out.

Maytag MDG4806AWW Runs for 5 to 10 seconds and then shuts off

This is kind of unusual esp. on a newer model. Sounds like it could be the signal from the thermostat to the motor could be bad. The timer may be faulty especially since you replaced the motor.
