When I look at the diagram this is what goes through my head:

When the start switch is pushed it actuated the centrifugal switch in the motor which disconnects the start winding and activates the run. But that doesn’t make sense to me because the run should be on all the time with the start only being activated for a short amount of time with the motor running. Can you start me In a different direction or tell me where my thinking goes wrong?
