he AC from the wall is being converted to DC for the motor by a controller that also provides with the variable speed functionality.

what is the experience you are seeing when you turn the lathe on?

the motor should have 2 wires running to it. can you check with a volt meter if it is getting the needed voltage? that would help you figure out if it’s the controller or the motor (same goes for the controller inputs)
