I agree and I think it would fix the problem but without going with a DPDT switch wouldn’t it overheat the capacitor using it to power the run windings?

(I’m hoping there is a way to achieve high/low function of the motor with only a SPDT switch if my wiring checks out) maybe I am crazy

Edit: it would work on a single speed with the capacitor after the switch but with the dual speed switch would it back feed to both the high/low windings at the same time? or does the centrifugal switch (pictured above) mechanically eliminate that possibility?
