11-12 yr old XE80. I changed blower motor capacitor last

Customer Question

11-12 yr old XE80. I changed blower motor capacitor last night and a/c worked fine for about 2 hours, then shut off and now blower motor tries to start but won't with a very loud humming noise. Did I get a bad capacitor or is the motor shot? If so, is there a less expensive alternative to the MOTO4717 that's in there.

At first glance most likely the capacitor is the wrong one or a bad one.
