Either a loose connection or damage to the mains cable.
Follow your nose, the problem part will absolutely stink.

First thing I would do is unplug it from the mains, then see if you can turn the wheels by hand - if they are pretty free, then chances are it's something to do with the motor or the supply of power thereto.

If it's tight to turn, maybe one of the wheel bearings is seizing?
You can tell a lot from the actual "kind" of smell to - the smell of a motor cooking is entirely different from the smell of a cable joint overheating.

Sounds like you are not shifting the sawdust quickly enough and the blade just jams up when it's full. More so with wet timber. That can also change the blade alignment, so make shure you have enough 'suck' from the extractor vac to keep it clear

If it's still not running or running badly, loss power, motor heating up. It'll be run capacitor. Round plastic bit generally stuck on side of motor with wires coming out of it. With bandsaw unplugged check if its bulges or melted or smells. They're cheap to replace, £10 , just get same rates one as blown one.
