Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. From your description it has a failed capacitor. Open the base above the light kit. You'll see a small square plastic component with wires on it. It will no doubt show signs of overheating. Remove it and carefully note the colors of the wire connections. Go to the link below for a replacement.
