It maybe a faulty on/off switch. I would maybe try to by-pass the switch just to see if it is. If that is not the case then there maybe something wrong with your motor.

Assuming that this is a three-phase motor, suspect a defective motor starter (look for loose parts or poor contact condition). If the starter is equally new, does it have any warranty? Check the wiring connections for anything loose (motor, starter, source). Good luck!

Chain saw motor runs but chain doesn't

There are a couple of reason the saw blade will not turn.
- Make sure you have bar and chain oil in saw.
-Make sure oil is running on the saw blade and chain.
-Make sure the clutch is not stuck.
- Make sure the bar sprocket is not frozen.
-The safety kick back guard needs to be re-set.
-Shut off saw. Push and pull guard.
Please let me know what you find.

I recently (8 days ago) changed the starter on my Unisaw. A couple of the wires from the plug on the origional starter were loose, and the saw would kick off as soon as I turned it on. Now my saw has done...

What is the rating of the starter overloads. A more basic question, are they adjustable or the heater type? It sounds like the starter overloads are taking you out. Check the full load amps of the motor you are using against the overload rating. Add 10% to this and set overloads at ths setpoint if adjustable. If heater equipped buy new heaters rated for motor load. Make sure to use the 1 phase rating and not the 3 phase. That is if you are using a 3 phase starter.

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.
