Question about Table Saws

2 Answers

I was using my Delta TS220LS table saw and it quit running.

The motor does not even hum. The motor was not hot. I was only using it for about 1 minute before it quit. The blade does turn by hand with only slight resistance.

The schematic for this saw which you can see here:

http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/delta/TS220LS

shows a circuit breaker associated with the motor. I do not know exactly where it is, you must find it and re-set it, problem solved.

Try taking out your brushes and clean them, also clean the brush holders. (make sure the brushes slide all the way in and out freely and that they are not worn down past the ware mark) Also make sure you put the brushes back in the same way or the electric break may not work properly because of the ware pattern it makes.

While you have the brushes out look into the brush holders and look at the armature. The copper blocks are called the commutator if it does not look smooth you might want to take it somewhere and have it tested.

Also make sure your are getting power through your switch to the motor.

More than likely it is your brushes or brush holders.

If the blade turns freely by hand,check the motor brushes.Most high quality power tools have easily replacable brushes,and they usually only cost a few bucks.

My table saw will not start. the power source is good.


If the motor is using a single phase supply there will be a capacitor which could have reduced in value- open.
If so try and use a capacitor in parallel to see if the motor works-- in this case the motor might hum and get heated up.

Check nameplate on motor for amp draw, and then check that against your breaker and wire size.

If table saw worked on the breakers before and suddenly stopped working, then see if you can lubricate motor bearings >> look for oil cap on each end of motor and use 3-in-1 oil.
Clean the saw and make sure there's nothing rubbing against drive belt and that saw blade rolls easily when saw is turned off.

Most likely to quit suddenly is the switch.
My table saw switch broke recently, and at first I thought it was the motor.
Over the years I remember seeing table saws fitted with a handy box and ordinary light switch to replace the table saw switch.
Check for power at motor: Sometimes the wire connection from switch has access box on the motor where you can get in and check for power.

I have a delta 36-600 table saw that the clutch or drive has quit working . the motor was rebuilt about a year ago now the drive slips is there a simple or easy fix or adjustment to the clutch for this...


If you have a motor with the no.1313314 and the motor runs ,but the blade spindel does not turn try removing the backcover plate . With this removed you might find that the toothed gear belt has broken. If this ,in fact, is the problem the belt is a Bando syncro,link 100xl.
Hope this rectifies your problem as I am waiting for a new belt myself.

My table saw stops after a minute or two i replaces the capacitor and still does the same the breaker pops out


This means it's drawing high amp. Could be just packed with saw dust, getting hot. The breaker is probably thermal. Clean it up good. If it still trips, check for name plate current on motor and test.

Delta Table Saw stopped running


I have a table saw that the cord from the motor plugs into the the back of the on/off switch. I yours is configured like that, unplug the motor cord from the back of the switch and plug it in to the wall and see if the motor will run. If so replace the switch.

Motor stops after about 5 minutes of running


What are you cutting? What type of blade, power supply, etc are you using. It sounds like the thermal overload is cutting out.
Try looking for a little (red) button on the motor itself that pops out slightly when the motor cuts off.(due to overheating). If you push that in, will the saw start running again?
