Hitachi Table Saw Quit Working

I was ripping down a 4X4 with my 10" Hitachi table saw when it bogged down then stopped. Upon trying to restart the saw, it seemed to be seized up. There was some smoke coming from inside the casing right before it went down. I thought it was from the hot wood. A few minutes later I tried it again and it starts to turn very slowly then trips the breaker. It also pulls a lot of juice on the circuit (I see the lights dim). As of now it starts to rotate very slowly and makes a humming noise. It does so for approx. 12 revolutions, before it trips the breaker. I tried some WD40 on the wheel, etc. Did I burn it up? If so, should I try to get it repaired or would it be better to purchase a new saw. I only use it at home. HELP!

Sounds like you've got problems with the armature commutator or one of the bearings is bad. Your best bet is to take it out and visit a local motor repair shop to asses the problem. A new motor could be the answer but at some heavy duty expense.

When i turn on saw it bogs down and dose not take off spining but is not froz


If you are trying to rip wood with the fence it will most likely be that your fence is not true to your blade check the blade to see if it is the same distance on both ends of the blade to the fence. If that is the case you will need to adjust your blade. Check your owners manuel to start that process.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

Electric blade brake sounds like it is seized up. Upon starting table saw (bosch 4000), motor sounds like it is binding. How can I disengage the brake??


There is no electric brake on the Bosch 4100 table saw. If the motor sounds like it is being held back its possible the rear armature bearing has seized or the field coil is faulty. Both these problems cause the motr to not turn at full speed. The motor must be serviced.

While cutting , i experienced a bind. Before the saw stopped I shut it off. Left overnight, now will not restart. I have pushed the thermal reset button, however it does not seem to engage. I have checked...


Is this a direct drive or belt drive saw? If belt drive, you can remove the belt and try spinning the motor by hand then turn it on. Sometimes they can get stopped in a dead spot. Do not get your hands/fingers in the way when turning it on. You may need all of them someday.

Moter bogs down on my saw can anyonehelp


Maybe it's under-wired? When you start it up, if the lights dim, and the saw takes 2 or 3 seconds to come up to speed, then your wire is definitely too small and/or too long. 14 gage wire is almost always too light, although a very short 14 gage extension cord plugged into a circuit wired with 12 gage is OK. The cord on the saw itself is probably 14 gage.
