Hello, my atlas lathe has an old GE 110v motor. Lately it developed a difficult to start issue, especially the first use of the day. It hums, and you can feel it is trying... a lot of time, I can spin the wheel to help get it start. When it started it runs run. Should I be looking into the starting capacitor (if it has one), or the belt/gears are too tight cause binding? Thanks in advance.
