Question about Delta 10"Hybrid Tablesaw with 30"Unifence

1 Answer

Motor not working on Delta table saw: I just got a used Delta table saw for free, the previous owner said the motor wasn't working. I wonder if it could just be a switch... how could I check that? I also wonder if I could just replace the brushes... again, how would I check that? Finally, if I do need to replace the motor, what do I need to do? Saw is a direct drive (no belt).

    The saw I own is different from the one pictured. Not sure of model number.

  • uniqueperson Apr 18, 2009

    Okay, the saw is a Delta 36-600, and I removed the motor, which a Delta representative told me is a 1313314 part number for that whole motor assembly. When I turn it on, there motor turns, so it's not the switch, and there's a very loud whirring noise, and some blue sparks inside the motor. I took the brushes out, they don't appear damaged, and the armature also does not look damaged...

    Okay, sounds good. I'll do that when I get home. What about the noise? Is this just a very loud motor, or is something wrong?

    on the back of the case there should be a tag or sticker with the model and serial numbers on it. Also on the motor itself there should be model and serial number as well as voltage, amps and a bit more info.

    See if you can find the dataplates on both and post here, please

Ok, the motor turns, but throws sparks on the brushes. This is normal to an extent for universal motors used on that type of equipment.

Try reassembling the saw, and put a blade on it, then try it. If it runs, try cutting a piece of scrap 1x, both crosscut & rip. If the motor can't hold the load, you may still have to replace it.

    The noise is most likely a bearing, probably the drive end. Before you load test, try wiggling the shaft all directions. If there is any movement at all, see if you can replace the bearings.

Delta table saw, 34-670, keeps shutting down


There could be several problems. First, make sure you have a sharp blade. Then check the arbor for drag just after you have been using it. Unplug it, lift the motor a bit (to loosen the drive belt) and turn the blade with your hand - it should turn very freely. Check the motor shaft for drag too by turning the motor pulley with your hand (with the belt loose). The motor should have just a tiny bit more drag than the arbor shaft. If all of these check out ok, then you might have an insufficient gage of wire between the electric panel and the saw - a thin wire long extension cord is often a problem. If you are using an extension, try to eliminating it and plugging directly into the wall. (It depends on the length, but in general don't use a cord lighter than 14 ga - higher numbers mean skinnier wire). And it could be that the house wire is too light - a long run of 14 gage wire is too light - you want 12 gage wire and a 20 Amp rated outlet. If all of these are not the problem, then you have a bad motor that is partially burned out (that is, the insulation on the coil windings has melted and the coil wires are shorting out resulting in coils with a lot less turns than the motor was designed for. You can replace the motor or get it re-wound. Good luck!

My table saw will not start. the power source is good.


If the motor is using a single phase supply there will be a capacitor which could have reduced in value- open.
If so try and use a capacitor in parallel to see if the motor works-- in this case the motor might hum and get heated up.

Check nameplate on motor for amp draw, and then check that against your breaker and wire size.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire2.html

If table saw worked on the breakers before and suddenly stopped working, then see if you can lubricate motor bearings >> look for oil cap on each end of motor and use 3-in-1 oil.
Clean the saw and make sure there's nothing rubbing against drive belt and that saw blade rolls easily when saw is turned off.

Most likely to quit suddenly is the switch.
My table saw switch broke recently, and at first I thought it was the motor.
Over the years I remember seeing table saws fitted with a handy box and ordinary light switch to replace the table saw switch.
Check for power at motor: Sometimes the wire connection from switch has access box on the motor where you can get in and check for power.

I have a delta 36-600 table saw that the clutch or drive has quit working . the motor was rebuilt about a year ago now the drive slips is there a simple or easy fix or adjustment to the clutch for this...


If you have a motor with the no.1313314 and the motor runs ,but the blade spindel does not turn try removing the backcover plate . With this removed you might find that the toothed gear belt has broken. If this ,in fact, is the problem the belt is a Bando syncro,link 100xl.
Hope this rectifies your problem as I am waiting for a new belt myself.

Delta Side Kick table saw will not start,


If there is no response at all, check the circuit breaker on the motor. There is a heat triggered breaker there. That is the most common cause of this. If that is not the case, please update this and we'll look further.

Delta Table Saw stopped running


I have a table saw that the cord from the motor plugs into the the back of the on/off switch. I yours is configured like that, unplug the motor cord from the back of the switch and plug it in to the wall and see if the motor will run. If so replace the switch.
