Thanks. I just ordered DAYTON Round Motor Start Capacitor,400-480 Microfarad Rating,110-125VAC Voltage from Grainger and will see if this solves the problem. Appreciate it.

Have you tried It is a motor parts website, might be worth a shot.

Also, the problem is not that it is from Harbor Freight, their dust collector is one of their gems. Overall the store isn’t all that bad, just gotta figure out what’s worth it and what isn’t, just like any other store.

Careful, the capacitor needs to be rated for 250 or 370VAC usually. 480uf seems awfully large for a 2HP motor.
