Have a look at the wiring of the capacitors on the motor. Capacitors hold a charge so be careful.

A broken or loose wire in the motor circuit can cause this, as can a motor overheat.

A motor overheat can be caused by unusual back pressure to the motor shaft (suggesting a pump issue) or the motor itself may be failing.
