Hi James

So no sign of life even after changing the plug fuse and using in a different socket?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.

That would suggest the switch has developed a fault if it was the motor or you would expect to hear a high pitch whine.

Unless there is something between the switch and the motor

A new micro switch can be sourced here.

The diagram on this page here (top left - item 4) shows the wire to the motor so stripping it down you can check continuity fairly easily.
