Question about Craftsman Saws
I have an old Craftsman 8" table saw. The manual has a copyright date of 1954, but the saw is in new shape, so why replace it unless I need to. The issue is. I replaced the original 3/4 hp motor (because it would no longer turn and just hum) with an Emerson G63BXHYZ-5204 3/4 hp motor. Now this motor won't turn the blade w/o help (i.e. me spinning the blade) and once it is running it will die down to a stop and hum untill I pull the work away. Could replacing the motor and using the original power cord be the culprit or is it something deeper? Thanks for any help.
Is there an external phase shift capacitor for the motor? A defective phase shift capacitor can cause no or slow motor rotation and reduced motor power.
