Sometimes we have seen that a ceiling fan suddenly starts moving in opposite direction with slow speed, what could be the defect?

The starting winding circuit is open-circuited may be due to burnt winding or damaged capacitor or the running winding is damaged. The fan is running only on one winding. The blades and thrust of air in the room accelerated the blades in opposite direction. As we know that the single phase motors are not self-starting, they will continue to move in the direction in which these are initially accelerated.
