Hi all,
could anybody give me a couple of pointers re the above? I picked it up from the auction this morning, and on testing later worked fine. After fitting the brush belt it was totally dead in the motor department, the neon in the motor housing comes on with the foot switch, so the power is getting in, but no smoke, no hum, no nothing!

Is there a known fault I should be looking for, rather than stripping the whole thing down. During earlier test there was no hesitation or intermittency to suggest a bad connection or fractured wire, so am at a loss.

Thanks in anticipation,

Rick
