How did it ‘quit’? Did you try to turn it on and it just hummed? Did it quit in the middle of a cut? Is there any indication that it is trying to run at all? Most motor problems can be attributed to fairly simple problems to fix… you just need to figure out what it might be. Unless it needs to be rewound (rare), it should be salvageable. Given that it was running previously, it most likely is still good. You didn’t let out the magic smoke did you? :)
