    Please give us some more details about the saw, like the make and model number, whether you have checked belt tension, etc or have isolated the problem to the motor...in which case which motor, etc.

    Then someone will be happy to help...

The advice you were given is correct. The start capacitor is gone. Remove the old one and take it to an electric motor service company. They should be able to track down a capacitor that will work.
Hope this helps

I have a TS300 table saw and the blade does turn immediately when power upped, the blade speed seem low, and the blade easily stall when cutting - even 1/4" ply.


There are two windings in the motor, a starting winding and a running winding. There's also a centrifugal starting switch in the motor that switches from the starting winding to the running winding once the motor gets up to speed. Sometimes the switch can get stuck and you almost have to give the blade a spin with your hand to get it moving-- and then it moves slowly till it picks up speed.
A rating on that saw complains it doesn't have a whole lot of power, but yours doesn't sound like its under-designed -- it sounds like there's something wrong. Does it smell hot when running? Does the arbor turn freely? Are you using a long extension cord? (dont!)
I hope you don't need a new motor ($255)
If you do, I'd sell the thing for parts on CraigsList and look for another saw in the same place. I bought one table saw on craigslist for $60 and another for $45. (You might have to watch the listings every day for a year or so to get those kind of prices.) Both of the ones I bought are belt-drive contractor's saws with a 1.5 hp motor outside the box on the back side of the saw.

Hitachi C9U2 circular saw problems with starting. tries to start but won't go.


Could be a faulty capacitor. Without the rectified current and the added emf or oomph the motor cannot move or is not sure which direction to move in. so it may sit there buzzing or even set off in the wrong direction.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

When I turn on the table saw, I can hear it humming as if the motor is hung up, but the blade does not move. With the power off, the blade turns freely. Also, I removed the belt and it makes the same...


With the blade and nut off the arbor, turn the motor on and VERY CAREFULLY turn or bump the arbor in the direction it is supposed to turn. If the motor spins up to speed you have a bad start capacitor. I have never been able to find start capacitors for Craftsman motors as a seperate part so you may have to replace the whole motor. Check with any local electrician shops first as they may have the capacitor you need.

You may have lost power on one of the wires to the motor. Check the wiring for breaks, if you have a meter make sure there is power to the 2 110 volt wires.
