fire it up and plug in a drill, pull trigger on drill and spin the chuck backwards. Keep in mind that if it works, drill will start spinning...move your hand away quickly.

Cordless drills don't do it!!! ha ha! I know, not funny.

You need an old corded type with a brush type motor. Of course there could be other issues.

I don't believe it matters which you spin the drill, it just needs to be a universal one. But I've wondered if a variable speed one would work ?

check the capacitor. 9 out of 10 times that is the culprit.
