Woodfast lathe motor

Greg Purcell
>I've used this particular lathe for the past 16 years without a hitch. While using a center-saver system, it just stopped. Yes, the motor was quite hot and I had been turning for a number of hours, but I didn't smell anything burning? It has a 1-1/2 HP, with a DC converter. Anyone with a Woodfast know if there's a "reset" somewhere or am I looking at a new motor? I can't really complain after 16 years but, if there's a fix I'd sure appreciate your advice.
