On some motors I have the high(er) speed(s) are provided by the capacitor and I suspect that's what's going on there. The capacitor might be the run capacitor for high speed.
I have an antique Edison 3 or 4 speed "house" fan in my bedroom that is entirely dependent on the capacitor for speed selection.
Having said that, I am certainly no motor guru. . I like to wait for scotts or someone to dissect the motor questions.
