I have not seen high value non-polarised caps on the market before. What caps are you using?

Most caps I have seen have a ripple rating. If you reverse their polarity as you are doing, I believe they will fail very quickly.

Also, the faster the mill goes, the more the capacitor conducts (short circuits the winding) due to the higher charge/discharge frequency, and higher mill frequency.
