Dual Stage Pump (Century 0-196159 56Y, 2 HP)

Hello, I have a two stage pump. The high speed does not work (starts of 1 second, then shuts off). The low speed works fine. The capacitor was replaced 12 months ago. Any ideas?

Does it start and run normally on high for a second or does it make some noise before/after? My two speed pump has two capcitors, a start capacitor and a run capacitor. When the start capacitor went bad, the motor generally would try to start but then would just hum. I haven't had a run capacitor go bad so I don't know first hand what that would look like.
