I'm showing the indoor fan motor as being controlled by a contactor. Is this correct?
Before I'd think of replacing the motor, I would replace contactor. Typically the contacts inside these can arc and start to create high amp draw which can, in turn, drop voltage and slow down the motor.
Yes, the contactor pulls in and supplies voltage to the motor.
