The blower motor on my furnace wont start. It hums and will

Customer Question

The blower motor on my furnace won't start. It hums and will run if I give it a shove. I have a new capacitor. Do you think it is the motor itself?
Thanks

Billy :

If you replaced the capacitor already...and the blower still only starts with assistance...it means the start windings are gone in the blower motor. Unfortunately this requires replacing the motor.

Customer:

That's what I was guessing
