Question about Heating & Cooling
First mark the wires and make a diagram so you can reconnect it. Next remove the capacitor. You can take it to a heating and air supply and they will test it for you. They will also sell you a new one. Use your wiring diagram to reinstall the capacitor wires. It sounds like your problem is the capacitor.

I just had the same problem. I replaced the motor with no luck. It turned out to be a bad capacitor. If it is a dual capacitor, three prongs on top, it also starts the compressor. It is recommended to replace the capacitor anytime you replace a motor. I would try replacing the capacitor first. It is a lot cheaper that a new motor. If that does not fix the problem then you can get a motor. No harm, no foul. The slow start of the motor is a common symptom of a bad capacitor. The motor is not getting enough voltage. The capacitor increases the voltage like a transformer. It will boost it to almost 400 volts, depending on your unit.
