Dead air compressor repair question

I have a Craftsman air compressor. I've had it about eight years, and it has quit running. It has an oil-less motor, which I know are not great but I'd like to repair it if possible. I've found websites where you can buy any part for the motor, if you know which part you need. It's a 3 HP, 150 psi, 15 gallon compressor, model # 919-167241. One day when I was using it, the motor was running and started to get slower. It got slower and slower, then just stopped. Now it won't come on at all. Does anyone have any idea what part or area of the motor may be at fault?

Did it smoke any or smell weird? Probably better off just getting the motor itself if it is bad.
