What is wrong with it?
Out of the DOZENS of models they’ve made through the years, you couldn’t provide the model number that YOU have. So I’ll just offer a small list of possibilities which may affect any of them.
From what you described, it sounds like the motor isn’t able to start rotating. SO…here it goes:
- A faulty electrical outlet (3 Ø unit)
- A faulty electrical plug or cord (3 Ø unit)
- Faulty internal wiring of equipment
- One bad pole in contactors (3 Ø unit)
- A bad start capacitor – if required (single Ø unit)
- A bad motor winding
These are just some of the possibilities…off the top of my head.
I hope this helps.

Let’s not forget friction. In other words a load beyond what the motor is able to turn
