If the motor isn't HOT when it kicks out you need to replace the thermal sensor is all. If it IS, then the motor needs replacing.

The safety switch is trying to tell you something. When the protection disconnects it is due to a faulty motor. Many things can be at fault, wires breaking down and shorting, windings going bad, insulation problems, stator and rotor problems, simple over heating and lastly the over-load protection itself can be defective.

I took the front cover off of the switch and noticed the portion of the switch the off button contacts was fully depressed and would not slide back to its proper position. I lubed (silicone) the slide portion of the off switch and cycled it manually to free it up and distribute the lubrication.

Check your alignment of the blades, sounds like they are hitting something and will not turn. To check unplug saw and try to turn blades by hand. If they don't turn thats the problem, if they turn check and make sure that the blade is the right type for saw. But if the regular blade works fine you have a binding problem with the dado blades.

you need to check your brushes again. something is making contact or shorting out. look at everything carefully

SOURCE: Hello. We have a Jet

First things first: Does the blade turn freely? I assume so, since it was in use at the time it shut down.

Second, if the reset is fixing the problem, you may have a shorted winding in the motor. Was there any smell connected with the shut down? Any noise at all?

Here's the best explanation I've found for checking that:

Follow the steps to determine if you have a shorted winding. If you're not comfortable doing this, perhaps you can call on the services of an electric motor repair service in your area.

Therma Overload Switch


If you have not supplied enough power (like using an extension cord) the motor sees a big voltage drop, starts drawing a lot of current and eventually overheats. Make certain to use a good supply. JET Tools

Overload reset button on porter cable 10 in table saw


Why this is in sewing machines I will never know.

But this is an example of pushing a saw beyond it's limits. At best you should have cut one post, shut the machine off and let it cool... then go for the next. (Better yet get a friend with a saw mill saw the thing down for you)

I believe you have burned out your motor. Off the store you go....for a new one.

Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model number. Look at the motor and wiring section. Look at item 16. The motor overload protector. (probably your reset button) WIth saw unplugged, unwire one sid of this switch and test with an ohm meter. You should read through the switch. If it is open then that's why the saw doesn't work. Many of this type of oveload requires quite a push to reset as you're flexing a klixon disc back to make contact. If is open and you can't reset, it's available there although a bit high priced.

Table saw cuts off


Probably the overload trip is set to too low a current. Either this or it is faulty.
It is just possible that there is dust in the contacts which causes a bad contact but it is more likely to be the overload trip.

Motor stops after about 5 minutes of running


What are you cutting? What type of blade, power supply, etc are you using. It sounds like the thermal overload is cutting out.
Try looking for a little (red) button on the motor itself that pops out slightly when the motor cuts off.(due to overheating). If you push that in, will the saw start running again?
