elect motor repair

first remove the belt and see if the motor and pump will turn over easily by hand. Burned-darkened windings are a bad sign, on the video You should mark the end plates and case so you can put it back together oriented right,
things to check with power cord unplugged. continuity thru the reset button, continuity thru the starting points. ( his gitty up and go disassembly) if they are burned sometimes you can use a points file or sand paper to recondition them. check all the wire connections inside the case, starting circuit and screws -nuts where the power cord connects , where the various wires are connected to reverse or change between 110 and 220 V operation. with and old needle ohm meter check between the contacts on the capacitor , usually a good one will move the needle
