Delta DP350 Drill Press Motor

I recently purchased a Delta DP350 12" drill press that is in good shape. I changed the belt to the Power Twist type which smoothed it out somewhat. The only other problem is the motor run/start switch inside the motor sticks in the run position when I shut it off. After a while it will reset and then I can start it again but if it doesn't reset. I have to tap the motor with a hammer to reset it before I can run it. Delta says and so do other parts sites says the motor is discontinued. I have the motor out but not apart yet to see if maybe cleaning up the switch and a little lube might take care of it. Anybody else have any problems with this drill press or maybe this same problem? Solutions? Thanks, John

Does the motor have openings where you could blow it out with a blow gun?
I've cured a few motor start switch problems that way.
