Open up the base. There is a speed coil with wires going to the switch. See if one is broken or has a dirty connection.

Sorry I guess I am in the wrong part of the forum.checked the wires all seen to be ok. 
It is a Century 16' Model 153 if that helps.
New to this, Just spent the last year restoring a Model T which was easier than this I think.
Thanks for the fast response

If it just hums on the low speed, there could be excess friction in the bearings. To fix that it needs to be cleaned and oiled. If not however, there may be an electrical problem.
