I am happy to hear that you don’t believe I need to purchase a new press. I have become attached to this press already :) The motor does turn on when I flip the switch on. The press is spinning it is just spinning very, very, very slowly. It seems as though the motor is trying extra hard to turn the belt but it never gains enough strength to speed up the turning. Slow, slow motion. At times it spins so very slow then increases a tiny, tiny bit … like it’s trying?

Steve brings up a good point… is the motor pulley loose, allowing the motor shaft to spin without turning it? A video would be very useful if you can figure out a way to let us see it.

Cheers,
Brad
