Jesse, sounds like the problem is in the motor rather
than the switch assuming you don't have a voltage
problem eg. long small guage extention cord. Assuming
voltage is ok, either the starting capacitor or
the centrifugal switch (which switches in the capactor
to start the motor, then switches it out when it's
up to speed) may have died. Since the switch is mechanical,
it's most likely to go bad. You can pull the motor
end cap off and see if you can fix it; it may be packed
with sawdust. If you're not feeling that brave, you
can take it to a motor shop, but new motor might not be
a bad idea depending on the general condition.
