Jacob Anderson is one source for some free YouTube videos on repairing them. He also is a reputable repair site if you need someone to do it for you.

I would start here https://jacobshopsmithrepair.com/youtube-videos/

How things should look video is a foundation to build from.

Does it turn freely by hand with no power applied? If not, you have something bound up inside. If it turns, then look at the motor.

Yes it turns freely I think the belt is slipping way to far between the sheaves

As he asks, if it is less than 1/2" across the face, the belt should be replaced. You can read one of a number of discussions about this in reading the post viewtopic.php?p=247928#p247928 and reading through that thread.
