Response to I have a B2848 motor that was put in in 2015. The other day it had started up in the morning and then a couple of hours later was not working and the housing was very hot. I went out the next day and tried to turn it back on and it just made a buzzing sound for about 10 seconds and then silence with no start up. Could this be the capacitor that went bad or did the motor go bad? Is there a way to tell just from that description?
