    I got a hot tub motor that continues to shut down on on therma overload. The motor shaft turns freely and when I turn it , it will restart. I am guessing it could be the start capacitor and plan on replacing once I find one. Need to obtain the manual due to specs on capacitor are unreadable.
    Question 1 does anyone agree with my diagnosis and question 2, could I use an AC hard start temporarily to keep the motor running. Its below freezing where I live
