SOURCE: high amp start up draw

I don't care what kind of stories Craftsman tells, their numbers don't add up.
One horsepower is ~ = 740 watts of energy.
2.5 hp equates to a steady-state power consumption of  ~1850W and this could be 50% higher during the first second or two after turn-on.  Your 15 Amp circuit is pushed to the limit by that power level; 15 Amps X 120 VAC = 1800W And, motors aren't a breakeven game; part of the power they draw is wasted in heat.

9 amps steady-state would be a power consumption of over 6kw which cannot be right. Either your measurements or the motor is faulty.

SOURCE: Tile Saw Troubleshooting

if your blade is newer or even well used,one way to make it cut better is find a used brick or a piece of a concrete block and cut through them,what really works best is a carborundum stone that setters use to hone cut edges of tile,you can get 1 at any tile store or home depot for 5 bucks. another trick is to lightly pull up on the table towards end of cut, if they keep breaking at end of cut, and you have the gauge set simply flip tile up side down and start your cut then back it off flip it over and cut through. all saw cuts leave minor chips on cut edge, we always stone cuts. cutting a brick cleans debris off blade. MAKE SURE WATER IS PRESENT WHEN CUTTING

You don't really need a wiring diagram. get the switch, swap it out wire for wire... pretty easy.. getting it apart will be the hardest part.

The Target wet saw TA10100 is shutting down immediately after starting up. Anyone know the part that is causing this. We have replaced the off/on switch and repaired a wire to the switch with new conn


check where your power cord goes inside the saw to the motor. All that wrapping the cord around to pack it up sometimes works it loose. Other wise id take it to a elec motor shop for a new motor, Last one i got i think it was $40 installed. Targets arent' cheap so its worth just putting a new elec motor in it.

Why won't my compressor stay running


Does it run at a low speed to start but then just quits, or goes back to low speed? Some compressors have a starting winding in the motor to get it running, then as it speeds up it kicks out the starting winding and goes to the normal run winding. I am thinking that the run winding may be bad. Or else you have a bad contact in the pressure switch and the compressor kicks on but the contact arcs and loses connection sometimes. The difference would be if the motors always does the same thing in about the same time it would be the motor problem. But is the compressor runs and then all of a sudden stops, sometimes in a minute, sometimes five minutes, I would look at the pressure switch.

The saw wants to start running but the saw braker pops before full speed run. I am running on a 30 amp outlet and checked all cords. Thank you


If you have access to an ammeter, check the draw when the saw starts. I don't know what the rating of the saw is but I doubt it's more than 30A. If the startup draw is more than 30A the saw may have a short in the starting circuit. If it's less than 30A the breaker may be bad; change the breaker and retry.

Circular saw won't start after having cut pavers


You fried the motor and most of the time it isn't worth repairing, since the parts will cost you more that a replacement saw.

If you are going to continue to cut pavers, suggest you either take it very slow and cut 1 or .5 paver and then let it cool down. But a water cooled tile saw would be better.

Its either the speed of the blade ( mine came with its speed at half rate), or its the crappy blade they give you with the saw. If a cut is bowing your blade is having a tough time with material. This often happens with tough porcelain tiles and not using a porcelain blade.

We are currently experiencing a problem with the target TA10100 wet saw. It will start up and immediately shutdown. The local authorized tool repair said that the part encased on the top of the Baldor motor is called a capacitor. we have yet to find out if this is the cause of the problem. Hope the information helps you because so far it hasn't helped us.

How do I change the saw blade?


i have been doing tile over 20 years, I've never seen a blade that wont come off , on a great saw like target,or any other professional saw. that saw has a 10 in blade,inspect by lifting the blade gaurd so you can see the nut holding blade on, take a cresent wrench put it on the nut hold the blade with ur left hand and hit the wrench with a rubber mallet. It will come rite off,the nut does not have to be super tight,because it could warp the blade when cutting tile and it puts pressure on the bearing,inspect the motor by turning it on without water pumping it should be pretty quiet,it has a baldor 1 1/2 hp motor awsome motor.good luck
