Question about Saws

1 Answer

On/off switch table saw

Ihave a 10 in. table saw (Delta 110 volt). I replaced the switch but it keeps tripping the breaker. I tried several switches but with the same results. I can straight wire the motor and it runs. I am familiar with simple wiring but this has me stumped. Please e-mail if you have any suggestions? Thanks,Earl

    I have the same problem; almost brand new table saw and it keeps tripping the breaker. It will run without load sometimes, other times it won't start and will simply sit idle with the motor straining to turn and then trip the breaker. Other times it will bind up under load.

    It has been sitting idle in my shop while I was in Afghanistan, got back and now I am trying to fix it.

    I also have a problem with the wiring on my 36-979 switch. I removed the switch and lost my wiring sketch, can you help?

    Similar problem. Breaker trips motor when under the slightest of loads. I can reset the breaker after a few seconds and start up again, but it's impossible to cut anything for more than a few seconds. Blade is new, nothing is binding, plugged directly into 20 AMP dedicated circuit. Any ideas what's wrong?

It sounds like you are wiring the switch wrong. Give me the model # and I will look for a wiring diagram for you.
