Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw
The craftman table saw will not run/start. was cutting shut off saw. went to turn on saw nothing happened. checked power sourse, ok. reset button seens ok. this is the 5th or 6th time used saw. what can I check or do to get the saw to run?
I had the same problem several months ago with a craftsman (shut down during a long rip), and the reset switch had tripped but did not actually pop out. I tested everything in the line between the power supply and the motor, and found out that the reset switch was not conducting. I was able to reset it manually before re-installing it into the saw, and it's been fine ever since. I'd test that before you start pulling the motor out, it would be a much easier fix if the switch was just sticking.

I have the same problm with m Craftsman model 137.248830. I have found that the switch cover under the saw fills with fine sawdust over time and will overheat the cutoff switch. I have to invert the saw, pull the switch cover off and clean the saw dust out with a tooth brush and then everything seems to be fine again. Seems like a sealed cover would be a big help so I may try to make a gasket to help seal out the dust next time I have to dismantle the switch cover! good luck!

First check the saw with power off and unplugged from the wall socket.
turn the blade by hand, if it is hard to turn, check the motor for object that is logged in the motor. if you can't find any, then you have a burned motor. if it is not, check the motor for broken wire and burn saw dust. do what ever you need to do to correct the problem.
