Do you have a volt meter. Check the power at the switch and also at the3 motor. If the motor is good then the switch might be bad.

I’d hate to think that that was the problem all along.

I see from an earlier post that the switch is on the motor so I assume that the motor shop checked it out also.

I’d guess it is a return trip unless it is in your wall power supply. Is it 120 or 220.

Did the circuit breaker trip ?

Have you tried pushing the button ?

I sent you a PM with that idea, and mentioned that … even IF the breaker WAS tripped, and re-setting it DOES get the motor started again … I wouldn’t run it until you’ve had them take it apart, to see what’s wrong.

My guess: something’s rubbing. Friction > heat > excessive amperage draw > circuit breaker tripping.

You can get a working volt meter, incidentally, for like $3 or $5, at Harbor Freight. An important tool—particularly if you’re thinking about restoring other old iron !
