DC Motor Question??

Jimiles-Charlotte, NC
>Anyone know about DC motors? I recently got a Leeson DC motor,1800 rpm, type 280-14, ( runs on 110 volt) with a Dart 250 Controller. It seems to run and the controller will adjust the speed. However it has no torque, I can stop the motor with my hand. Any idea where to start to determine what is wrong or worth fixing? Thanks for any advice!
