It is against code to simply put a 30 amp circuit breaker into a line that is rated for something lower like 15 A or 20 A. If the saw draws a current higher than what the lines can handle you can have a fire. The circuit breaker may be able to handle it but the lines in the wall won't be able to.

you have to use a meter and check the voltage at the switch and to the motor.

Sounds like you may have overheated the motor. I'm surprised the overload on the motor didn't trip first. With this overheating, the windings in the motor have basically shorted out to ground. This is why your breaker is tripping. Rewinding the motor is no longer the option these days. You can try going online to www.searspartsdirect.com

I assume that you are using the motor on 115 volt service. Remove the drive belt and check for excess friction in either the saw arbor bearings or the motor bearings. If both seem free to turn, then suspect that the start capacitor on the motor has failed. They usually become open circuited which prevents the start rotation. It will just sit there and hum loudly until the breaker pops. You may also have a defective 20 amp breaker--you will need a clamp-on AC ammeter to verify. Suggest that you run the saw on 230 volt service when you get it running. You will be amazed at the acceleration and apparent power available. My table and radial arm saws are both set for 230 volt operation and love it. Go to: Searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point. This will take you to a series of drawings that list all replaceable parts. Hope this helps!

Ryobi 10 inch table saw trips breaker when he turns onRyobi 10 inch table saw trips breaker when you can it on


First of all the saw needs to be plugged in directly to a outlet . NO Extension CORD !!! If it is Right , then Check on the motor label and see how many AMPS the motor is ? You need to then check the Breaker box and make sure the breaker is big enough to handle the load of the motor on the saw . You may have to make sure that the saw is the only thing on that breaker . NO Refrigerator , A/C , ECT.
Also make sure that the motor is clean and not packed full of saw dust . This can over heat the motor and kick off circuit breaker fast .
Good Luck , Hope This Helps !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Circuit breaker trips out


What is the rating of the breaker? Is this enough to run the saw? If this is ok, has the motor become damaged or has the blade got dirt or wood dust slowing it down?

Brand new saw trips 20 amp breaker every time I turn on the saw. It starts to turn and after about a second the breaker trips. Have tried different plugs on a different breaker. Still it will not start....


How long of an extension cord are you using? Is it at least a 14 gauge wire? It should be 12 gauge. If it 16 or a long 14 it will cause the problems that you mention.

If this is occuring when its plugged directly into the outlet then it is likely a problem with the saw. Before you take it back tho try another outlet on a a different circuit.

Table saw overheats triping braber. have cleaned contacts and tighten the conections on the side of the saw.


Usually a saw that size will have it's own breaker built in, is this the one that is tripping? Or is it the one on the wall? Either way, a dull blade will make the saw work harder, and heat up faster, Mine trips off now and then, always from a dull blade. It has a built in breaker in the switch. Are you running it with a cord? Make sure it is heavy enough, a small cord will steal amperage from the circuit turning a 20 amp breaker into a 15. Hope this helps.

Breaker trips after 15 seconds can reset but trips again its a craftsman portable table saw 10"


sounds like you have a direct short in the tool or possibly the breaker is weak. I would try another outlet first to see if it does it again. Also look at other products on the same circuit that might over load the breaker. If it does then I would have to think it is the tool and needs to be put on a special tester to check for dielectric failure.
