Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
Motors and abrasives don't ever mix. What is likely to have happened is either there is a lot of dust in there or the motor brushes have worn.
Unplug (obviously - but some people!)
Remove belt and other removable parts, then open up case by undoing screws.
The motor armature (copper bands) may show signs of blacking if the brushes have worn.
Check rotation of motor to see if it's stiff.
If it seems free enough, clean out all parts with a small paintbrush & blow clear.
Order a set of brushes for that model and fit them.
They are sprung loaded to contact the armature, so can be a bit fiddly. Check contacts and rotation when refitted.
Keep all screws in an ice cube container - and the whle lot in a box while spares arive - as things get lost all too easily!
