Question about Craftsman Saws

1 Answer

New table saw motor very weak and has problem kicking on

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.

    Phil-Thanks for the reply. I don't think that there is an external phase shift copacitor. The info on the motor can be found here. http://www.usmotors.com/Online-Catalog.a... Catalog # D34CM1J

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.

New leeson 3 hp motor for my tablesaw has very little torque, and is less powerful than my old 1hp craftsman motor. What could the problem be?


If the motor is a 115/230 volt motor and is running on 115 volts but the wiring is configured for 230 volt operation, the motor will be weak.

I have the same table saw. Mine has done that for the past 25 years and I've always considered that it's just the flexible shaft coming up to speed. It's never given me any problems so haven't looked into any further.

Motor base needed for 10" table saw


My 10" Craftsman saw started life with a 1 hp motor. I'm on number 3 motor which is 1 1/2 or 2 hp. 1 hp seems to weak. The pulley diameter is about 2". The motor needs to rotate as the blade is moved from vertical. Mine is mounted to back of the blade arbor. The mounts needs to be adjustable for adjusting tension to the belt. McMaster Carr would have the start of a motor and base.
