I have a Powermatic PM1200 air filtration unit in my shop. Through a process of elimination I think that there is a problem with the capacitor on its electric motor. while connected to a power source, but not turned on, the motor hums and spins the fan extremely slowly. It appears as though there is some current "leaking" into the motor. Will a bad capacitor cause this problem? A picture of the capacitor is attached. Does anyone know where i can purchase a replacement? Thank you in advance for the help!
