Question about Ryobi 10 In Miter Saw With Laser

1 Answer

Mitre saw running, but not switched on?

When the saw is plugged into the power outlet, it immediately starts up. As the motor is not switched on via the start button, I assume its driving though brake circuity and therefore the brake capacitor is short? I need guidance and a wiring diagram please.

    The switch measures as it should, NC on the brake side and NO on the power side

There should be no power going anywhere until you pull on the trigger. With that in mind I would be looking at the switch for the fault

Skill saw table saw model 3400.Bypassed on off switch still no power?Does motor have a breaker on inside?


I have the same saw.

Sorry but this question has to be asked, is the AC (Alternating Current) outlet working/ an live outlet? Had to ask.

If outlet is good move on to the next steps.

Take an ohm meter / continuity meter.

With the AC power cord unplugged from the AC wall outlet.

Place the two test leads from the meter onto the plug prongs .

With the switched closed/ON, you should get zero ohms (or very low, close to zero/ continuity).

In your case you probably will not have any continuity because it doesn't turn on.

Now comes the fun part trying to find the problem/ open connection.

Lots of possibilities.

  1. The AC cord could be bad at the plug end.

  2. The AC cord could be bad at the point entering the table saw.

  3. The motor could be bad.

  4. The brushes in the motor could be bad.

  5. The field winding in the motor could be open/bad.

The plan is to ohm/continuity check the path of the power going to the motor, (both sides of wiring).

While meter leads are on the AC plug end, wiggle the strain relief ends. You have an intermittent connection.


TROUBLE: SAW WILL NOT START

PROBLEM 1. Power cord is not plugged in.

2. Fuse or circuit breaker tripped.

3. Cord damaged.

4. Burned out switch.

REMEDY 1. Plug saw in.

2. Replace fuse or reset tripped circuit breaker.

3. Have cord replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

4. Have switch replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

My Mitre Saw won't start when trigger pulled, seams like a safety is on can't fine it thou.,


most saws have a breaker switch built into the motor.
check on the end of the motor close to where the power cord is attached.
there should be a small button that will pop out if it is popped, usually if the saw is overloaded.
when saw is cooled, push in on button, it will click & stay in when reset.

Ryobi 10 in Mitre saw with laser, switch / motor wiring diagram?


capacitors are known as capacitors or condensers. Both do the same job of storing electrical energy and then releasing it when the current flows back . They are used to either start an electric motor or stop arcing on the brushes by absorbing the current flow as it stops over each commuter bar of the armature

Macallister mitre saw sparking


I would plug it into another outlet first. The small arcing that you see might be normal especially on stopping because of the brake. If another outlet doesn't work then I would take it back. Upon startup this saw will draw more than the rated running amps.

Motor replacement for Bosch Mitre saw


Most often the entire motor doesn't go bad. It would be a componen't like armature, field, brushes, Switch. I very seldomly see a whole motor go bad. look for a single problem. The saw is not junk it is very repairable with some testing of parts.
