Yep, squirrel cage. Nobody will sell one to me unless I have a GC license, at least if I want one within a reasonable time. Thanks for the response.

No picture handy - I'll try the test/reset procedure with the switch on, and if that fails will try to post a pic. Thanks for your help everyone.

Re the Romex being hot at all times, that's what I thought as well - I was surprised that it depended on the switch. I'm pretty sure I hooked up the plug correctly, I redid it three times to make...

Thanks for the reply.

It was the bearings. $75 for the repair and 30 minutes for me to install. That was Friday evening, it's been running great since. Thanks again for your help.

Electric motor shop did not stock a replacement, but they examined the motor and said the bearings are likely shot (or it could be the shaft). They are going to open it up and see. If its the...

Thanks again for the response. You suggest the following: "get access to the fan motor and spin it to see if it spins freely, if there is any "play" in it or makes any noise such as bad bearings."...

I swapped wire for wire. It was actually pretty straightforward. I am not certain how to tell if the compressor is still running, but I can tell you that after the fan cuts off I hear sounds from...

I replaced the dual capacitor (45/7.5 mfd 440v). The hard part was finding a place that would sell me one. AC started right up and died 30 minutes later. Is it possible I erred in the installation,...

Ok. After some research and your reply, I think I was looking at the start capacitor. There are two run capacitors, a small one for inside and a larger one for outside. They don't have any obvious...

I couldn't get the fan to run with the stick test and see no obvious signs of bulging. What I believe to be the capacitor is a black cylinder marked 330vac 50/60 hz. The fan tried to start on its own...

You had me at microfarads. Do you recommend replacing the capacitor to see if that does the job?
