Question about Hitachi 10", Table Saw with Stand, Powerful 2.6A Motor with Ste

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.
