I don’t think anybody brought up thermal overload. Most electric motors turn off internally if they get too hot.. If it just quits, no smoke, it could be it was over-heating. Once they cool off, they’ll work again. Something like a mis-aligned pulley or too-fast feed rate could cause overheating, especially in a hot environment.
