Question about Powermatic 66 10" 3 HP 1 Phase 230V Table Saw w/ 30" Accu-Fence & Rout-R-Lift 1660806K
I have a powermatic table saw. When i turn the saw on the capacitor on the motor get real hot and blows its end off. What would cause this?
The wrong capacitor for one thing. There are starting caps and running caps. The starting cap is in the circuit for only long enough for the motor to get up to speed. If you have a Leeson motor that has a start and run cap then the run cap may not be the correct on. If you have a start cap blowing out I suggest you check the centriifugal switch in the end of the motor. It may have welded the contacts shut. In any case, I would take it to a motor shop .
