Motor problems with a Ryobi GS-2000
The motor of this Ryobi GS2000 "garden shredder" has failed. I believe it may be the capacitor. I'm considering buying a new one: motor capacitor (start) motor run capacitor.
This is the plate of the motor:
There doesn't seem to be a centrifugal switch in the motor, although there are two kinds of winding, one thinner than the other, in the motor. So I think this big capacitor on the motor is a run capacitor.
Ningbo seems to be a place in China, and the name of the manufacturer is Jenn Feng.
This is the motor from above:
This is the motor from the side:
Here is the capacitor which seems to have failed:
Ningbo Hailida is the name of the manufacturer.
I can't get a good reading on the multimeter for this capacitor, I get either nothing or fluctuating values.
This photograph shows the size of the capacitor:
Update on 29 November 2016 I've ordered this capacitor: motor run capacitor.

This page explains what the name CBB60 means. Apparently the SH means "polypropylene with self-healing".
