Question about Ridgid 14" Band Saw with Stand
Of course I called Ridgid and I have to carry this thing over 150 miles to get it fixed so if I can do it myself it would save me a bunch of time but when I turn it on I get nothing. I checked all of the obvious to make sure power supply was coming in. Just before it went out completely one day I went to turn it on and the blade stopped, the motor hummed for aprox. 15 seconds then nothing. Of course my assumption is the motor is blown but where would I get a new one or is this one just worth driving the 150 miles and dropping it off and hoping they come up with something that is supposed to be under warranty, usually they find something else wrong and I could have bought a new one for what they charge me for the repairs and parts. I am thankful for the help!!!!
OK I checked a couple sites and depending on the model number one of the motors is obsolete, the other is about 240.00 list. Are you sure the motor is bad? If so what I would do is if you have a local Grainger supply center give them the numbers off the motor and let them match it up with a Dayton motor. I didn't see anything special on the one that I looked at. It appears to have a straight shaft with a keyway for the pulley. Before I drove the 150 miles double check the motor and also it appears that it has a capacitator to check also. Let me know if I can help further but I wish I had better info for you.
