Berkel Slicer won't start

I have an old Berkel model 2040 slicer. When I press the on button, I hear the motor hum but the blade won't spin. If I push the blade with my hand, it spins and works properly. That is until I turn it off. Then it's back to push starting it. To complicate things, this problem doesn't always arise. It will work normally (turn right on and blade spin) for hours or even days and then out of the clear blue it goes back to having to "jump start" it. Anyone ever come across anything like this

To sharpen the blade of my meat slicer

The stone that sharpens the back bevel is used for more time, but use grind for minimal amount of time, 30-40 seconds sounds extreme to me. The stone for the top surface of the blade is only pressed briefly to remove the slight burrs from sharpening on the back side of the blade.
