Question about Sears Masonry Tools
Hit every vent hole on the tool with as much directed air as you can, first with the motor off, then with it running to get all the dust and particles out of the motor housing you can. If this doesn't bring it back to life you should check the brushes. I'm not familiar with the Sears jointers but most tools have two caps about the size of a dime or a little smaller on the case you can remove to check the brushes. If there are no caps you will have to go into the case to check them. Depending on the model they should be about 1/2" to 3/4" long, with a spring to push them firmly down on hte armature. The end touching the armature should be square and shiny. If they are less than 1/4" long or burnt or broken replace them.

Tips for a great answer:
My $350 Echo PB-500T seized up. I almost cried.
The solution was to drain the fuel tank.
Refill fuel tank with an 2-cycle Oli/gas mixture.
40:1 =3.2 oz to one-gallon gas, do not use Alcohol base gas.
Remove the spark plug.
Pour approximate 1/8 oz 2-cycle Oli into the spark plug hole.
Remove the pull cord assembly (4-bolts)
This reviled the crank shaft-Pull cord bracket
I use a large monkey wrench to turn the shaft (CW) Clock-wise.
Complete approximate 20 revolutions.
Reassemble, but don't install the spark plug yet.
Complete approximate 20 more revolutions
by pulling the pull cord.
Use q-tips to swab the top of the piston, as much as possible.
Install the spark-plug and crank, it will smoke for amount 7-10 minutes
