Try looking at the stop start sw. sounds like a wire off or maybe a reset on the motor itself.

SOURCE: Table saw won't turn on.

that reset is breaker and I would think that it should click when reset. I looked at a breakdown and the part number for the breaker is OLSL list 2.16 and they are in stock at Searspartsdirect.com If you have a volt ohms meter I would check the electrical starting at plug end of cord thru the breaker. Make sure you unplug tool before attempting. I would also take a look at the brushes for excessive wear and sawdust buildup. Let me know if I can help more

SOURCE: I have a Skil 10'' table saw that will not power on.

If your switch is in the base of the machine, like some portable table saws. The switch may be full of saw dust. I hade one that the reset switch couldn't be pushed to reset because the housing was packet with saw dust. I simply opened the cover and vacuumed it out. If you open your switch box up and it is clean inside, your switch is probably bad. You can check it by taking the two wires off your switch (with the saw unplugged of course) and taping them together, if the saw works when you plug it back in, get a new switch.DON'T use your saw wired this way.

SOURCE: My Powermatic 66 table saw won't start.

Your saw motor is equipped with a two speed internal start switch. Over time saw dust will get into the contacts and cause the points to burn. You can pull the end off of the motor and take some 400 grit sandpaper to the contacts to clean them( there are two sets of contacts one works in the out position the other in the in position) it will be the set in the in position that is the problem. Gentle clean them, reassemble the motor end cap and it will work fine. I have to do this about once a year to my saws. I use my saws about 25 hours a week. I have been doing this to one of my Powermatic saws for 31 yrs. now.

How long of an extension cord are you using? Is it at least a 14 gauge wire? It should be 12 gauge. If it 16 or a long 14 it will cause the problems that you mention.

If this is occuring when its plugged directly into the outlet then it is likely a problem with the saw. Before you take it back tho try another outlet on a a different circuit.

Make sure the motor is not bound-up by turning the shaft somewhat. Suspect a faulty power switch for the motor, also check for a thermal breaker on the motor--push to reset. It is not likely that the motor windings could have gone bad. Does the motor 'hum' when turned on? A start capacitor could have failed in that case. Contact the selling dealer for warranty help if you can't get it running again. Hope this helps!
