Motor replacement on DW746

I need to replace the motor on my DW746. Is there anything tricky about this? It looks like all you need to do is pull the through bolt from the on-saw bracket, take off the belt, and the motor pops out of there. I guess that humongous spring will force the bracket out into your waiting hand, but my experience is that it's never this easy. Any tricks to it?

I suggest that you take pics from all angles as a ref in case you forget where something goes. you can lable parts or use dif color paint or nail polish to mark parts and where they go.

HI, could be the Brushes need replacing, take them out and have a look at them , they are located on either side of the motor,you will see
a black plastic nut or screw remove this and a wire within a spring will
pop out a little bit, gently pull this out and you see a black piece of carbon at the end of it, this is usualy 1/4--1/2 "long condition should look good , however , if it looks badly worn with a lot of grooving on the end then you must replace them.,if you think this is a wee bit difficult then you will have to contact a motor repair comp. or get them to fit a new motor as it sounds like yours is shorting out....T.C.

Looking for cost of replacement motor for skilsaw model 3400 13amp for 10" table saw and where to buy from? Also, is there a 15amp replacement motor that would bolt right in to replace?

i looked online at places I get parts from. Neither listed the motor as a part the had the aramature for about $70 and the field for about $35. Have you tried the reset button? also it may just need new brushes.(if you see lots of sparks at the end of the motor opposite the blade, look through the air vent slots it is likely the brushes, unplug the saw, and take them out and replace them HERE is a blow up ) the I would think that if the saw is well used and the motor has burnt out. It may be a lost cause. I am not sure what the price of this was new but you can get a reconditioned saw from Amazon for 135 bucks. And it is a 15 amp saw.

You can order them at
The DW746 and DW744 use the same guard assembly, if you're talking about the hinged guard over the blade.

Need a replacement motor for 1972 craftsman jointer

went to Sears site and no luck most parts are discontinued. So maybe try Grainger with the information from the data plate on the motor for a replacement or check in yellow pages for a local dealer of electric motors. I don't really think that there should be anything special as long as the output shaft and mounting are the same. Good luck sorry I don't have better info for you.

Hi , i have a skilsaw 3400,but the blade is to hard when hand turning it, want to know if it uses ball bearing or another stuff. thanks. pedro

If it is direct drive blade mounted to motor) you will have to remove the motor and check the bearings. Most newer electric motors have sealed bearings. I would suggest that you remove the motor and take it ot an electrical shop (call around first) and have them replace the bearings, clean it up and replace the carbon brushes. Anothe alternative is look for a replacement motor through places like Grangers, Norther Tools, etc.

If it is belt driving check all the components (pulle bearings, etc) for friction.

good luck....gary
