Sometimes dust gets in the switch and prevents it from working. You might try blowing it out and the motor as well.

Is the yellow safety key on the switch pushed all the way in?

When in doubt, check the obvious. Do you have power in the recept?
Circuit breaker?

Yep I checked the obvious, blew out the dust, rechecked the power supply.
I finally took it to my local Home Depot Rental and they diagnosed a bad switch.
So we'll see where this goes..........
