Icp usa unit wont turn on.

My outside unit will not turn on, all i get is a humming. I check the voltage and i get 243 at the switch, capacitor, and at the fan. What am i missing or doing wrong? I replaced the capacitor and the fan motor about 2 years ago.

Is the contactor pulled in? Is the capacitor swollen?

The capacitor doesnt seem swollen, how do i tell if the contactor is pulled in or not? Also, if i push the fan by hand it will spin under its own power. Doesnt seem like full speed though.
