Question about Jet Saws
The saw run about 15 to 20 minutes under no load and shuts off. I go in and hit the red button on the On?off switch and it fires back up. Tech thought it was propably the overload switch. Thanks,Pete
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.

Testimonial: "I will test it tonight after work to see if the motor is hot when it shuts down. Thanks for the helpful hint."
Could be the distance you are from your plug and the gauge of wire short runs for 14/2 cords draw to many amp try plugging in direct or to a 20 amp plug see if any change

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.

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.
