SOURCE: Brand new saw trips 20

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.

What caused my bosch matter saw to quit cutting in middle of the cut


Several possibles:
1) Load exceeded circuit amps. Breaker tripped.
2) Load exceeded saw amps. Reset tripped.
3) Wiring failure in saw.
4) Wiring failure in supply.
Time to start checking.
Note- if the blade is dull or the load on the saw is too great it will trip one of the breakers.

I would return it to the store, or have it fixed under warranty. You obviously have a defective saw. Dewalt is a reputable company, and they make high quality tools, but defects do op up once in a while from all manufacturers.
It sounds like your saw has a defective heat sensor, and it is sensing the temperature incorrectly and shutting the saw off to protect it.

My saw stops rotating during cutting


does the motor stop? If not the gears are worn between armature and spindle. If it does stop you could be applying too much pressure trying to cut with a blunt blade or there is an armature fault.

Trying to cut any size piece of wood the saw blows the circuit breaker at the panel 1x4 piece


Are you operating the saw on a 10 amp circuit or with a long extension cord? Table saws need at least a 15 amp circuit and should not be used with an extension cord. If absolutely necessary the extension cord should be no less than 12 guage. Tabel saws will run OK on a 10 amp circuit but as soon as you apply a load (try to cut wood) the power requirements go up to keep the saw turning. If you can, plug it into another outlet on a higher capacity circuit breaker or at least closer to the breaker box. If it still pops the breaker you may have bearing problems in the motor that are creating too much friction. This would make the motor work harder to turn so it would draw excessive power and trip the breaker.

My blade to my circular saw model number 5007nb was having trouble cutting through some wood which lead to it over heating how can i fix this thing and get it to start working tonight


Well you did not really say what is wrong?
Are you trying to stop the overheating, or did it get so bogged down from blade heat warpage, that the internal circuit breaker tripped?
If so, then look at the end of the motor, near the cooling vents, and press the little black circuit breaker reset. (not all have them)
Also check that the outlet still works, by plugging something else into it, because you may have tripped the circuit breaker for the outlet, or GFP.

Sounds like you may have overheated the motor. I'm surprised the overload on the motor didn't trip first. With this overheating, the windings in the motor have basically shorted out to ground. This is why your breaker is tripping. Rewinding the motor is no longer the option these days. You can try going online to www.searspartsdirect.com

Ryobi circular saw --it keeps tripping my breaker


Possible bad circuit breaker. If on a ground fault sensing circuit, the saw may have electrical leakage from it's internal wiring/motor to case ground (a possible problem if you have been using a metal cutting blade)(test by using a 3-pin to 2-pin adapter [no ground pin]). The circuit breaker may not be rated for the starting load of the saw (check the saw load rating against the breaker current rating--the breaker rating should be at least 25% higher). Possible excess current draw in the saw if any of the motor windings have shorted together for whatever reason. Hope this helps!

14" Delta Bandsaw keeps tripping the internal motor breaker.


Hi,
The first thing that I would check is the wiring to the saw. My guess is that the wire to the saw or the cord is not heavy enough.
As saw like that can pull a lot of amps. Probably 15 or more when working hard. What happens is that when the amp draw goes up and the cord is too light, the voltage drops which increases the amps. and starts a vicious cycle...
The one thing that finally gives is the internal overload in your motor.

Try running heavier wire or a heavier extension cord if you are using one.
#12 wire or a 12 wire cord would be minimum, if running over say 50 feet then you should be looking at #10 wire.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Delta Radial arm saw 33-990 tripping circuit breaker


More than likely motor but try this , if you have a wrap around amp probe or can borrow one or purchase a cheap one place the amp probe around the positive wire connected to panel breaker ,with meter on proper scale ,start saw and read probe current , if cap bad current will be high and stay until breaker trips , if motor will start high on start ,then low then ,very high and breaker will trip , be careful in panel working around live circuits , the reason it reads this way is because as the motor warms the laminates it the armature separate and cause the increase in current to spike ,if cap bad never gets to speed and has high current draw constantly , to verify cap(1) remove from circuit (2)place a screw driver across terminals to release any charge (3), then take ohm meter on ohms place meter leads on terminals one on each terminal at same time meter will rise and fall back(4) reverse leads and should rise and fall as before if it does this it is more than likely good a lot of electrical reasons for this but this will tell you what you wanted to know , good luck
