This is a weird one to me !!
Please help because its NOT the capacitor..........The motor hums until you give the fan a little push and then it runs fine, all ok, quiet,no screeching, but it wont start itself without that little push.
Obviously I thought (and everyone else thinks) it MUST be the capacitor, so I replaced it with a new one. And yes, exactly the same problem.............is it a bearing problem? motor brushes? Its only 3 years old.....

Please help, thank you
