I have a .75 hp electric motor that hums when power is applied. But unlike other motors like this one, If you apply power and try to spin it (by hand), you find it tight and slow to spin. It is free before power is applied. I did replace the capacitor with one from a .5 hp motor and it started once. Any idea why it binds under power ?
