Topic tags/keywords: rexon wood shaper

i just purchased a wood shaper today that is a rexon brand. the top on it has quite a bit of surface rust and i was wanting to know the best way to remove it. Also to my luck i got it home plugged it in, flipped the switch and notthing. I just dont where to look first for the problem, when u flip the switch u can hear the motor run but the bit dosent turn. i need any and all suggestion on both questions. thanks

I would check the belt or what ever drive there is. I’d check to make sure the shaft turns. The bearing could be frozen.

Like Karson said, sounds like the drive belt is missing or jumped off. If you can hear the motor run and the circuit breaker doesn’t pop, it probably means the motor is OK
