Heat pump compressor only buzzes for a second at startup

The system was checked out and a leak was repaired last week, all was working well until today... went out to check outer unit and hear compressor try to start. a short buzzing sound could be heard during this time for about a second... Could this be the start capacitor?

Had the service company back today they found a bad connection at the compressor inside the weather head. Capacitor checked out ok.
