    Have you checked the windings of the motor? What about the switch itself?
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      What troubleshooting have you done? Do you get power to the switch?
      Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.

        it can be as simple as a bad cord or gfi on the line cord.

        should be pretty easy to diagnose the area of concern.

        does the gfi on the cord light up? yes, next step.

        start with testing for power at the forward/ reverse switch. power yes?

        the motor doesn't have a parts breakdown, time to take it into a motor shop. it could be a bad thermal reset that is burned out?

        i've put my k-60 through hell and back. i've only changed the 2 main bearings on the main shaft.

        no clutch or belt or motor
