Motor won't shut off unless unplugged

Whenever I plug in the saw, the motor starts up automatically. Is there a short in it or anything? The only way to shut it off is by unplugging the saw.

Won't start, changed plug, set gap on magneto still no spark

To test magneto leave properly mounted and gapped to the motor. unplug black wire from magneto. Crank motor and test for spark. If you get spark with the wire unplugged then the magneto is fine and your problem is in the wiring system, likely a safety switch. If you have no spark with the wire unplugged then the magneto is bad and needs to be replaced.
BTW, the black wire is a ground. That is what shuts the motor off when you turn the key to off or when you get out of the seat, etc. So the motor will not shut off with that wire unplugged. Also, putting any voltage on that wire will immediately damage the coil.

Delta table saw, 34-670, keeps shutting down

There could be several problems. First, make sure you have a sharp blade. Then check the arbor for drag just after you have been using it. Unplug it, lift the motor a bit (to loosen the drive belt) and turn the blade with your hand - it should turn very freely. Check the motor shaft for drag too by turning the motor pulley with your hand (with the belt loose). The motor should have just a tiny bit more drag than the arbor shaft. If all of these check out ok, then you might have an insufficient gage of wire between the electric panel and the saw - a thin wire long extension cord is often a problem. If you are using an extension, try to eliminating it and plugging directly into the wall. (It depends on the length, but in general don't use a cord lighter than 14 ga - higher numbers mean skinnier wire). And it could be that the house wire is too light - a long run of 14 gage wire is too light - you want 12 gage wire and a 20 Amp rated outlet. If all of these are not the problem, then you have a bad motor that is partially burned out (that is, the insulation on the coil windings has melted and the coil wires are shorting out resulting in coils with a lot less turns than the motor was designed for. You can replace the motor or get it re-wound. Good luck!

The fuse for radiator fan blows off whenever it is replaced on audi A4 2002

I would suggest that the electric fan motor is shorted out, unplug the motor and see if the short goes away, if it does replace the fan motor.

The fan wouldn't start for the condenser unless I turned the blades with a stick so I replaced the start capacitor and it still won't start without turning the blades with a stick. It runs fine but...

This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. Please see our If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor.

Electric dryer motor just hums, won't start trips breaker

If its tripping the breaker then it is pulling more current then it is supposed to. The motor is probably shorted out and needs to be replaced. There may also be another short inside the dryer somewhere. Unplug the dryer and open the panel on the back. Look for burnt wires or any signs of a short circuit. If you don't see anything or are unsure of what you are doing, contact a professional handyman and have them do the work.

not if you are mechanically inclined and have a bearing puller. first unplug the tool and lay it on its backside to expose the motor, remove the brushes and the 4 screws that hold the motor housing to the diaphragm, remove the armature and then remove the bearings, press the new ones on, and reassemble, I would also replace the brushes unless they look really good.

sounds like the reset button needs replaced. Also when is the last time you cleaned the motor area?? When you reset the button is the motor "hot" to the touch and if so could also be a motor problem,, try the reset first
