It will be the start capacitor that is at fault, it is bolted on the side of the motor and looks like this --
This is for a 25 microfarad one - yours is likely to be 8 microfarad will be marked on the side. You will have to go to an electrical shop or buy it off the internet as its not listed as a spare part, motor and capacitor are sold as a complete unit from Hoover.
