Does the motor have a capacitor? If so, it needs to be replaced and your saw will run perfectly again.

I have a delta 34-444 table saw, is it a right or left tilt, or how do i find out?


Left-tilt, right-tilt refers to the direction the top of the blade can be tilted when it is not straight up and down. There will be an indicator on the front of the saw, normally pointing to zero. When you adjust the blade away from zero, if it tilts to the left, it is a left-tilt saw.

Delta table saw, 34-670, keeps shutting down


There could be several problems. First, make sure you have a sharp blade. Then check the arbor for drag just after you have been using it. Unplug it, lift the motor a bit (to loosen the drive belt) and turn the blade with your hand - it should turn very freely. Check the motor shaft for drag too by turning the motor pulley with your hand (with the belt loose). The motor should have just a tiny bit more drag than the arbor shaft. If all of these check out ok, then you might have an insufficient gage of wire between the electric panel and the saw - a thin wire long extension cord is often a problem. If you are using an extension, try to eliminating it and plugging directly into the wall. (It depends on the length, but in general don't use a cord lighter than 14 ga - higher numbers mean skinnier wire). And it could be that the house wire is too light - a long run of 14 gage wire is too light - you want 12 gage wire and a 20 Amp rated outlet. If all of these are not the problem, then you have a bad motor that is partially burned out (that is, the insulation on the coil windings has melted and the coil wires are shorting out resulting in coils with a lot less turns than the motor was designed for. You can replace the motor or get it re-wound. Good luck!

I have a 10" Delta table saw. It was running rough


Check that the blade is not warped or binding. Don't use long extension cords. Check your home breakers. Also check if the table saw has a breaker. Don't force lumber into the blade too fast and don't jam the lumber between the guide and blade. Try a different outlet and check your wire for breaks. Good luck!

Check nameplate on motor for amp draw, and then check that against your breaker and wire size.

If table saw worked on the breakers before and suddenly stopped working, then see if you can lubricate motor bearings >> look for oil cap on each end of motor and use 3-in-1 oil.
Clean the saw and make sure there's nothing rubbing against drive belt and that saw blade rolls easily when saw is turned off.

I inherited an older Delta 10 inch table saw. While cutting lumber the blade slows down and stops. The wood is not binding the blade. With power off the blades and motor turn freely. Does the motor...


Two easy possibilities are that the blade is dull or that the wire is too small. The wire is likely to be a problem if you are using an extension cord. You could move the saw near to an outlet that you know to be wired with 12 gage wire (not 14). Or you could buy as short as possible 12 gage extension cord. If being underwired is the problem, you will notice that the motor comes up to speed much faster when wired adequately. You might also buy a cheap new blade to rule out the dull blade problem. If neither of these fixes the problem, then the motor has become "weak" because it has overheated just enough to cause some minor shorts between the windings. (If the shorts are major it won't turn at all and will trip a breaker.) In this case the motor can be rewound, but it will probably be cheaper and easier to just replace the motor.
Good luck, Al K

If you have a motor with the no.1313314 and the motor runs ,but the blade spindel does not turn try removing the backcover plate . With this removed you might find that the toothed gear belt has broken. If this ,in fact, is the problem the belt is a Bando syncro,link 100xl.
Hope this rectifies your problem as I am waiting for a new belt myself.

Delta saw model no. 28-245 saws a taper form top of wood to bottom why does it not saw a stander line Delta saw model no. 28-245 s/n 91B1335


Sounds like your table is tilted. Put a small square on the table against the blade, then adj the table to it. If that is not it, then the blade guides are off up and down, back off all the guides, wheels, turn the blade by hand, get it tracking in the center of the tire, then bring the bearings up the blade, don't push it , just touch it, then bring in the guides, again, make sure it doesn't push it, the guides stop it from going off, it should track by itself. Hope this helps.

How do I align the saw blade with the saw table I have a 10 inch Delta Contractor's saw that is about 10 years old. The blade is not straignt with the miter slot. andyc@bergeralllied.com


The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.

Ok, the motor turns, but throws sparks on the brushes. This is normal to an extent for universal motors used on that type of equipment.

Try reassembling the saw, and put a blade on it, then try it. If it runs, try cutting a piece of scrap 1x, both crosscut & rip. If the motor can't hold the load, you may still have to replace it.
