do you have any good ohm readings from the wires coming directly from the windings? These small wires get pinched quite often & cause the issue you are having. no readings means stator is bad & needs rewind or replaced.

I'm in the process of restoring a similar model, check for ohms, then the switch.

So I took Lawrence and Dougs advice and tested the stator with my ohm meter.Get no reading whatsoever, so I am pretty sure it is dead. Who would be a good
Source for repairing it?
