Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw

1 Answer

Horid noise! Is it the bearings?

My 10" craftsman, bought at a yard sale about 10 years ago, has been great untill recently. It started making a horrid noise that sounds like it might be a bad bearing comming from behind the blade? Is this so? Can I replace it. I also found that it was loosing power and that I could actually push the blade in the opposite direction with the wood. I tightened the belt and it seemed to solve this. The belt and motor seem fine. But the noisey screetch is still there. Christy

It sounds like a bearing alright, I'm pretty sure you can replace the bearing, but you will have to slip the belt off the pulley and remove the trunion, (the part that raises and lowers the saw blade), put this on you work bench and remove the blade shaft this should allow you to pull the bearing or pound it out of the bearing retainer. I would do this ASAP before you ruin the shaft.

The AT480 model has a 2 year warranty on the motor and 2 year warranty on everything else. It probably has the same warranty that you have on your AT380 machine. It can be fixed at your expense.

When you buy a reman Alt ,you may not get new bearings

You can be rest assured your salvage yard piece is the issue

Put a screw driver on it, and put to your ear

Excessive noise


I am sure it was not that noisy early on. Chances are that the bearings in the motor are worn resulting in the noise.

Before you spend too much on a repair I would watch the sales and consider a new one which will be much quieter and much more economical and it will do a much better job on the dishes.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

Whirlpoor Refridgerator 10-12 yrs old


I had a whirlpool fridge that did the exact same thing. Sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night! It is the compressor shutting down. I had it for several years untill I purchased a larger one, and then gave it to a girlfriend at least a year ago. Its still working good today. So if you can tollerate it, just live with it. Otherwise change the compressor.
