Problem is we have model#113.247210 band saw and it quits,running/ordered new motor and belt/and still blade stops running when I cut a piece of wood/and it is sqealing.
Hello, W/D here.
I'm assuming here that the tension on the belt is set properly.
It sounds like a bearing in one of the wheels is going out, but the squealing sound indicates that the blade guide(s) may be a part of the issue. Here's how to check:
Loosen and remove the blade. Start the machine and listen to the lower wheel bearings. Remove the belt from the pulley on the band saw.
Spin each wheel separately, being careful not to get your fingers hung up. Listen for grinding bearings, slow revolutions compared to one another, etc. If you can isolate the problem, lubricate or replace the bad bearing.
If the bearings check out to be normal, replace the blade. Set the blade guides so that they are close, without touching, and roll the wheels again. Look for pinch points where the blade passes through the guides. If yours is equipped with a roller plate guide behind the blade, check that it moves freely. (I haven't been able to locate a diagram of the model listed, so I'm not sure if you have one or not).
Replace the guard and start the machine. Try running a piece of scrap wood, and try to determine where the blade is binding. Usually, the blade will bind in the guides, but anything that the blade can touch when it is deflected when cutting should be looked for.
This is all that comes to mind. Hopefully it will help you locate the source of the problem.
Best regards, --W/D--
