Bad motor capacitor. Should be in the electrical box. Oval shaped device with mfd ratings on it like 370 or 440 Vac and 5 or7.5or 10 mfd. Available at Graingers.

It is called Dual capacitor. 370 Vac combo type with 40 and 5 mfd sides/taps. You can safely upsize to 440 Vac if necessary but never downsize. Ie go to 370 from 440.
