I have a 12 inch chraftsman table saw with 2 wires coming from motor. The wiring diagram inside the cap shows it to be wired for 240 how do I wire that thru a switch and to a three wire recepticle


Not quite sure what your question is - Are you trying to plug a 240 into a 110/120 outlet? Or are you trying to plug this into a 240 3 prong outlet?

Traditionally, table saws don't come with a power cord - you must supply one. Usually on the motor there is a metal plate that describes volts/amps/phase/hp etc. Get the Volts/Amps from this plate, then measure the approximate distance between your table saw and the 240 outlet. The gauge of the power cord depends upon the Volt/Amps and the length of the cord. There are many volts/amps vs length for wire gauge conversions on the net. I always get a bigger wire (smaller gauge) than what is recommended. Expect to pay $100 or more for the cord (don't be cheap here). If you have an under rated cord, you can start a fire, burn up your motor, melt plugs into outlets and have to replace the outlet (don't ask how I know).

I'm a little suspicious of the "white and black" wire from 240 - it's usually "white and red" with a "black" ground. 240 is made from two 120's - opposite sine wave. So black is usually the common ground, while the white and red are the two 120's. Volts between white-red=240, white-black=120, red-black=120. If you're absolutely sure that white-black=240, then you can just connect a ground wire to the motor case. Many home table saws can be wired for 240 or 120 - you need to make sure that you're hooking 240v to the correct wires. If you're uncertain at all, then don't do it.

I have wired 120 to a 240 motor by accident and the motor ran - it had no power and didn't spin at full RPM. You can damage a motor this way, so I wouldn't recommend it. I have never put 240 to a 120 motor - so I don't know what happens (guessing you could burn up the motor coils).

With all that being said, if you have 240 outlet with 3 wire receptacle, then just use a multi-meter to determine the 2 "hot" and the 1 ground. Volts from hot1-hot2=240, hot1-ground=120, hot2-ground=120. If you don't have a multi-meter, buy one (approx $12). Once you have it wired up, then try the motor by flipping the switch on then off again. If the motor didn't spin, then you did something wrong. If it hummed but didn't spin, you have some connections wrong inside of the motor. If it spins the wrong way, then your wiring inside of the motor is wrong (doesn't help to flip the wires on the outlet). If you blew a circuit breaker, then the wiring to the motor is wrong.

WHEN I USED OLD TABLE SAW WITH UNGROUNDED POWER CORD. I ALSO HAD JIG SAW PLUGGED INTO SAME OUTLET. wHEN I LAID THE JIG SAW ON THE TABLE SAW IT SPARKED AND THE MOTOR ON THE POWER SAW DOESNT WORK. NEX


If you're lucky, there's a circuit breaker built into the table saw motor and a little red button somewhere on the motor to reset it.

When you re-wire it. know that the cord should have a black wire (hot), a white wire (neutral), and a green wire (ground).
When you wire the power cord to the switch, the black wire should be the one that goes directly to the switch contacts and gets disconnected when you turn off the switch. The white wire goes through the rest of the system up to the motor. The green wire grounds out the metal parts that you might touch.

If you have to replace the motor, get a 3450 rpm to 3600 rpm motor. Harbor Freight has one for about $140 before any discount.
I recommend at least 1.5 HP

DeWalt DW708 switch


http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/P0201024-00003.png

This is the newer 744 series, white cord to white motor and black cord wire to black motor.

If your motor needs the mag starter that 5th loose wire, usually red, goes to the start terminal on the mag starter.

Old switch went bad, orderd new one same shape differant wires.old one 4 spots for wires 2 load 2 line, new one 1 load 1 line plus 3 wires coming out all hooked togetherone white one brown one black.cord...


all you need is to ground the coil wire to shut eng off..and that is what flipping the switch does, then when you flip to on or start it makes the circuit open or ungrounded and it runs. so check which wire comes from coil and which wire is a ground and hook those 2 wires up ..one on one side of switch and one on other and then you have it, when it is figured out then cut extra wires off the switch or tape them up so that they aren't rattling around in saw.

I received a new on/off switch for my Ryobi BT3100 table saw. Does anyone know the wire config to hook it up? There's 2 white and 2 black wires. Thanks.


The white wires go on one side of the switch and the black wires go on the other side of the switch.

Replaced Oreck power switch. 2 black leads and 1 white lead for switch. Posts marked 1, 2, and 3. 2 black wires to switch powers on. Connect white wire and breaker trips. Where does the white wire go?


Both black go to the switch. Power in - black to switch / white to white from motor.
From motor - black to switch / white to white from power cord
The black wire from the power hooks to the off end of the switch and the black wire from the motor hooks to the on end. Third post is not used. The two white wires are connected to each other with a small twist on wire nut.

I bought a craftsman 9" band saw from a neighbor and I need to hook up the switch to a SH cap to the motor. I am unsure of how to hook up the wire diagram? Please help. Antonio


there should be a wiring diagram in the motor case or inside the wiring junction box on the motor, and if like most 120 volt motors it will have 2 wires coming out of the motor case and a cover where the cap is covered / stored on the motor,just hook-up the 2 wires to the cap, either wire on either cap terminal is ok

WIRING DIAGRAM


The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

1 HP. motor wiring, need help!


Simple to do. Go to the local hardware or home improvement store and get a 6 to 8 foot heavy-duty extension cord. Cut the outlet end (not the Plug end) off, you won't use it. Strip back the outer casing of the cord to expose the three wires, black, white and green.
The Green wire is connected to frame of the motor or saw to ground it for safety reasons.
The White wire is connected to the silver color screw connection.
The Black wire is connected to one terminal of the switch, another wire is connected from the second switch terminal to the brass color screw on the motor.
Plug in the extension cord, and flip "ON" the switch and cut some wood and think of your Grandpa....good guy!
