Sounds like the run capacitor has given up. Or, maybe the worst is it overheated and burned the motor winding. You'll probably have to take it apart. If there is a smoked capacitor, that's probably the one you should replace. If the winding is scorched, might as well get a new motor. If both are the case, then replace the capacitor before you give up on the winding.

The problem you have is a faulty field coil, the Bosch saws unfortunatly have a bit of an issue with this. The coil can be replaced separatly so you won't have to replace the whole motor. Bosch has a 1 yr warranty on thier table saw so this is a warranty replacment provided the saw was purchased within the year. If not the coil replacment is still cheaper than buying a whole new saw, but should really be done by a service center because of the level of difficulty of the repair.

I inherited an older Delta 10 inch table saw. While cutting lumber the blade slows down and stops. The wood is not binding the blade. With power off the blades and motor turn freely. Does the motor...


Two easy possibilities are that the blade is dull or that the wire is too small. The wire is likely to be a problem if you are using an extension cord. You could move the saw near to an outlet that you know to be wired with 12 gage wire (not 14). Or you could buy as short as possible 12 gage extension cord. If being underwired is the problem, you will notice that the motor comes up to speed much faster when wired adequately. You might also buy a cheap new blade to rule out the dull blade problem. If neither of these fixes the problem, then the motor has become "weak" because it has overheated just enough to cause some minor shorts between the windings. (If the shorts are major it won't turn at all and will trip a breaker.) In this case the motor can be rewound, but it will probably be cheaper and easier to just replace the motor.
Good luck, Al K

Hello, the brushes are two gray sprung loaded electrical conductors. They are located on the inner main spindel of the motor (armature), when they start to wear out you will find that most electrical motors will slow down in revolutions. Experience has taught me that when an electrical motor emits smoke it has normally burnded out the armature. This in all honesty is not worth fixing as it is an expensive job, it is cheaper to buy a new saw. Sorry to convey bad news but I hope this clarifies thing for you.

Replaced armature and brush's and there is alot of heat and spark and it starts slowing down?


Unless somewhat preformed, brushes have a tendency to arc like crazy and can produce heat and even smoke. I would remove the brushes and use a fine 'keyhole' type file to give them a little inside curve so they have better contact to start with.
