Completed checklist of all steps to start - still motor hums and then shuts off. After pushing reset button, try again and same result. Any ideas, pro? Thanks.

67501 won't restart

Basically the same advice, William.

If you have clean power, no other devices pulling power from the same circuit, and with the 67501 plugged directly into a socket, then it sounds like a motor capacitor might be the issue.

Please see the troubleshooting pages on this site that address this specific compressor issue.

Same thing...

Motor hum and shut off, press reset, hum and shut off.

See the page on this site about how to test your capacitor.
