The motor is most likely open circuit. Solutions are going to be either replace the motor OR if the thermal fuse on the windings is blown you will need to get one of the same value and replace it. The value is written on the fuse and it is under some fibreglass tape on the field winding with the aluminium clip around it. You need to remove the motor completely to do it.
Take the bottom plate off to expose the motor, drive belt, and pulleys (pull the power plug for this). Remove the drive belt and turn the motor shaft by hand--does it seem to turn freely? Do the same with the driven pulley--it should turn freely also. The pulleys and belt are likely cog-type and not prone to slippage. If either pulley shaft is excessively hard to turn, then investigate the reason,and replace parts if necessary. With the belt off, the motor should accelerate almost instantly. If relatively slowly, the motor may need to be replaced.
Did you replace the start capacitor or start relay first ? This is the most common problem & a hell of alot cheaper than a new motor. Did you replace the motor shaft seal (around the shaft on top of the unit ? if not you will be replacing the motor sooner than you need to because the acids from veggies eat these things up & is the main reason why the motors fail, next in line is overloading or forcing product.
