Hi, I would try removing the belt and see if it will start. If with a new cap and the belt off it doesn't start then it sounds like a problem with the motor windings, does i turn by hand when not powered ? If so then definitely a winding problem which will mean a motor replacement or rebuild. thanks MarkI genuinely enjoy helping people.
