Begins to startup and shuts down right away

I have a Delta Unisaw 5HP which has been working just fine. Today, I went to turn it on, and it begins to come up to speed for a second or so, then shuts off. It never really gets any speed up at all before it shuts down. Any ideas? Tom

My Delta Unisaw quit spinning the blade even though the belts are fine. The blade is tight. The motor druns.

I would unplug saw and check if you can turn blade by hand the belts do not move. I would remove pulley and check key on abror shaft.

Blade on older delta unisaw really hard to crank up and down

I have been using a unisaw with a Biesemeyer fence for fifteen years. It is simply the best. Unscrew the locking nob in the center of the up/down wheel. Unscrew it all the way. You will see that it is a rod with threads near the nob and a point on the end. If there is rust or gunk, clean it. Do not lubricate the pointy end or it won' lock. If this doesn't work, take enough of the saw apart to look at the mechanism. It is very simple and rugged; you will probably see the problem easily.

Delta x5 unisaw 3 hp. couple days ago it was running strong never had a problem before. push start motor tries hard to spin but nothing besides a hot motor barely touch it hot. 10 min later saw starts...

The motor has a component called a clixon (there are other names for it, too). The clixon has a step up coil and a capacitor that gives the motor an extra bit of juice to get started turning. When it fails, you get the kind of thing you're talking about. If you keep trying to use it without this component working, it overheats the windings and shorts the motor out, killing it. You're most likely going to end up replacing the motor now.

Sorry I didn't have better news for you.

could be a couple problems without knowing what motor the starter windings could be burnt or the capacitator might be bad. I would suggest going to and typing in your model number to see if you can find a breakdown there. If not send it to me and I will try and locate it for yo.

I turn on my nuvi 760. It begins tio startup. Begins to look for maps. Then it shuts down. Now what? Thanks!

i suspect it cannot find the right files to run the maps or that the battery is not properly charged
