Have a rol air fc1500hs3 that was running fine and just kicked the 15a reset on it.


Motor just hummus now but the piston is free if u move shaft.

Seems like motor is seized.

Could it be the capacitor ?

Looks direct drive, so if you can turn an exposed shaft nothing is frozen, in all likelihood.

So, yeah, good chance it's a cap.
