Question about Ridgid 14" Band Saw with Stand

1 Answer

Wheels won't turn

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OK I checked a couple sites and depending on the model number one of the motors is obsolete, the other is about 240.00 list.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.

Oven won't heat up, but no error codes

I called the repairman for help. Turns out that one of the suggestions would have worked if I could go to basement turn off breaker then run up and carry out the suggestion and run to the basement again and turn back on breaker, then up again faster. The repairman was able to fix problem by using me as the go between the breaker and the oven. He stayed up and I stayed down thereby eliminating the problem of not being able to run up and down fast enough myself. The two of us were able to make things happen in the time limit. I think I should have gotten a break on the bill since I played helper!! If anyone else has this problem and has closer access to the breakers than I, they would be able to cut the repairman out of the picture and save the service fee. Maybe I should run up and down from oven to breakers for a set amount of time for exercise in preparation for the next oven problem. May be easier to get a new oven without a computer in it if such a thing exist anymore because at 77+ I don't think I am going to get much faster even with exercise.

My steering wheel has locked and my key won't turn in the column, and of course, I cannot go anywhere. Hopefully you have a suggestion for a single woman of 55 years old that I can do myself. I am...

no there is no cheap nor easy fix, the steering column will have to come apart and the anti-theft contraption attached to the ignition switch which holds the steering column fixed will have to be replaced. there is a nice video of a fellow doing this over on, good luck finding the parts.

2000 Yamaha 650 Vstar Classic, the shocks bottom out when hitting bumps, how do I fix this? Thanks

This motorcycle has a single preloaded adjustable shock, you may have it set to low for the weight it's carrying or after this many years it's simply worn out. There should be a tool in the kit that came with the bike to turn the locking came. Another thing is and I've done this so many times myself is when carrying a passenger or I ******** a bunch of luggage I turn up the suspension. When I take the luggage off I forget to set the suspension back down again and it rides like a brick on two wheels.

Cheers ride safe enjoy your motorcycle

I dropped my 2004 tacoma off at the dealer to get the frame treatment (recall) done. They called and wanted ot service trhe front and rear differentials for $400 (along wth th list of other routine things...

A 60,000-mile or 72-month service adds on replacement of the limit-slip differential in four-wheel-drive models. The largest service, 90,000 miles or 108 months, adds on a timing-belt replacement. A 100,000-mile service calls for the replacement of engine coolant
