thanks for the help guys.

Zac the table moves on it’s own – no hand power required. I also do not hear any noise at all when I turn on the machine – just my mumbling when it does not work. :-)

I am not sure where brushes are in the motor – .

I’m pretty much not mechanical – but if it comes down to having to change the motor out – I should be able to do that as I managed it on my bandsaw several years back.

I have no idea what a capacitor cage should look lilke, but I’ll check my manual.

my plan of action for when I get home from work is:
Double check that I’m not on the same circuit as my dust collector
Use some compressed air to blow out the vents
Check my manual for the capacitor location (and hopefully it has a nice picture for me)
Push in the red reset button
Turn it own and cross my fingers.

Thanks again for the help. I’ll let you know how I do.
