Look into the cool mods of using a treadmill motor. Electronic speed control. Maybe someone took out a good induction motor for conversion and you can get one of those cheap.

There should not be much rattling around in the morot except the inertia switch that takes the start winding out of the circuit. If it is not working, then what do you have to lose tearing into it? At worst, you learn something.

Of course, be sure it is the motor end. Probably. Not much else to one but a couple of beatings on the spindle.
