Re: Bench Grinders Usage
Grinding is the fastest way to deburr a sharp corner or dress the end of threaded rod or bar stock that's been cut to length. Fit a grinder with a wire wheel, and you have a handy tool for removing rust. Then switch to a buffing wheel and you're ready to polish metal to a mirrorlike sheen. But for most of us, grinders are essential for shaping and sharpening hardened tool steel and high-speed steel.

since this is a vague comment, I have to say that some small grinders just do not do well with blade sharpening. I have one that does the same thing when sharpening a blade. It is just too small, horsepower wise, to handle the job.
It sounds like the motor is burnt out. If the case can be opened, unplug it and check around for signs of too much heat, especially at any wire connections. You may be able to resolder or replace a wire to fix it
Below I included a link to the manual for your grinder. However it will tell you the same thing I'm going to tell you. Most bench top grinders do not come with a shaft lock. In order to loosen or tighten the retaining nut you need to place a small wooden wedge between the wheel and the metal wheel shroud. This will prevent the shaft from turning. This may seem archaic but it serves a good purpose by preventing the over-tightening of the retaining nut. Hope this helps.
our bench grinder can be used to keep your chisels, knives, gouges and other similar cutting tools sharp, which every woodworker knows is vitally important. Also, bench grinders are handy for sharpening lawn mower blades, drill bits, gardening shears and more. Additionally, a bench grinder can be used for honing and shaping metal objects when modifications are needed. For instance, perhaps you need to modify a door hinge to make it fit in a certain application. No tool is better for this task than a bench grinder.
Bench grinders aren't designed for precision work. In fact, they're really freehand tools that rely on a good eye and careful touch. And while you can take some tools, like drill bits or turning tools, right from the grinding wheel to the work, it's common for grinding to be a relatively coarse, preliminary shaping procedure, followed by careful honing on a whetstone.
Bench grinders are perfect for sharpening cutters, bits, blades and hand tools. Any piece that needs smoothing, shaping, or polishing can be done at the bench grinder. Straight grinders or angle grinders are portable, handheld tools with wheels that range from 4 to 9 inches. They are the best grinders for working on pieces that may be too large to fit at a bench.
