    The emerald info tells me nothing.
    Is it a capacitor start or run motor? If so check (or replace) the capacitor.
    Does it release air from the intermediated pipe when it stops? If not then check (or replace) the automatic air valve (in the start/stop box).

    You tell me, I've never seen an Emerald motor before. Either provide a link to a picture or a dealer or the manufacturer, or Google "capacitor motor" and select images.
