Question about Craftsman Saws
Was cutting 1/2" plywood today on a saw that doesn't get used much. Saw lost power, started to sell a bit, I can see sparking in the motor (arcing?). Any idea what's going on?
Depending on how much "arcing" you see it could be a couple different items. First some arcing is normal and usually runs across the brush edge, but if it is a lot and goes around the armature then it could be a brush spring that collapsed or worse the armature has an open or damaged segment on the commutator, I would take the brushes out first and look at them (unplug tool first) the edge that rides on the comm should both look the same and the spring also. If you can see then turn the blade by hand and look at the comm thru the brush tube for a different looking bar on it. Let me know the model number and I will pull up a breakdown and see if I can help you further.
