Bad heater element. The jarring caused by starting it back up probably caused it to finally jiggle lose a short (not uncommon).

In Topic: What To Use To Protect Vinyl Cover?

Armor All is the absolute worst thing you can use. It pulls out and removes the natural protective propertied of the vinyl, replacing them with it's own. If you don't CONTINUALLY and frequently use it, the vinyl will quickly deteriorate. Do not use anything that is petroleum based (such as Armor All). 303 Protectant is the best, followed by Son-of-a-Gun.

Most 2 speed motors are "up-rated", while single speed motors are "full rated". Simple explanations, a 1-1/2hp two speed motors has a high speed equal to a 1hp single speed motors.
