A bad centrifugal starter or inside capacitor and or the electric field if an old type with induction motor , but if it has carbon brushes in the motor instead of an induction motor the commutator on the armature short brushes or a bad bearing(s) on the motor or other gearbearings on the saw drive are worn , it must have a smooth turn if turn on the armature if remove the field /motor house.. look in the motor if running at the end if the carbon brushes you see are make to much sparks a worn bearing without the balls or bad armature collectors or electric field . watch if the bearing is worn by blue hot it can have melting the seat in the motor house replace it all.

The reset button is normally a thermal overload, using a bio-metallic strip to break the circuit. If it is old or has popped a few times it might have 'weakened' abit. Try replacing the thermal/reset button. If it still happens then something might be overheating and causing the problem.

It sounds like you are wiring the switch wrong. Give me the model # and I will look for a wiring diagram for you.

SOURCE: Dado blade installation

Yes. normally an eight inch stack dado set is used on a 10 inch saw. You will also have to purchase or fabricate a special throat plate (non-metallic) to accomodate the extra thickness of the dado set.
The number of blades used, and therefore the thickness, varies depending upon the task at hand.
Make sure to use the factory supplied nut and washer to capture and tighten the dado set securely on the arbor.
Be very cautious in the use of dados. Do not raise the set higher than 1/4" or so until you are familiar with the use of a dado set. Try to avoid so-called "wobble" dado sets. They are IMHO more prone to dangerous kickbacks and harder to adjust than a stack dado set with dado shims.

SOURCE: How do I align the saw blade with the saw table

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.

Sounds like you may have overheated the motor. I'm surprised the overload on the motor didn't trip first. With this overheating, the windings in the motor have basically shorted out to ground. This is why your breaker is tripping. Rewinding the motor is no longer the option these days. You can try going online to www.searspartsdirect.com

Delta 28-160 band saw 3 wheel, blade keeps coming off


Sounds like your tracking screw needs adjustment, located right beside the knob used for tightening after adjusting the tension on the blade. Allen wrench required. Turning right pushes out and turning left pulls it in. A little is a lot when adjusting this screw. Always turn the blade in the same direction as the cut while adjusting.

My 10 in. Craftsman table saw is blowing the house circuit breaker


If it was the bearings you would probably hear a change in the sound of the saw before a significant amount of drag would cause this problem. If you are using the same outlet and the same cords as when you did not have this problem, then something has deteriorated. Is the blade sharp? Has the cord become compromised - either the wire itself or the plug? (The stranded wire in the cord could be hanging on by a few remaining strands.) Does the plug fit nice and tight in the outlet? Perhaps the motor has overheated and has partially shorted out some of the windings. On the other hand, if you have changed extension cords, perhaps the cord is too light or long.

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!

FOX 254 MM TABLE SAW E36-529 PRESS START SAW STARTS THEN BLOWS TRIP


Making sure the saw is unplugged ( not just turned off ) and using a pair of heavy gloves, grasp the saw blade carefully and see if it turns freely. If not then dis-connect the drive belt from the saw and try again. If he saw turns easily now and make no grinding noises then it appears your trouble is elsewhere. While the belt is dis-connected try to turn the motor my hand. It should turn smoothly but with a little resistance. If it turns ok then we must look elsewhere again.

Look at the specifications plate on the saw to determine how many amps the saw requires to run and then check the rating of the circuit breaker that trips when you turn on the saw. If the saw requires 15 amps to run and is on a 15 amp circuit then it needs to be relocated to another outlet, preferably one with a 20 or 25 amp breaker.

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.

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.

Delta Side Kick table saw will not start,


If there is no response at all, check the circuit breaker on the motor. There is a heat triggered breaker there. That is the most common cause of this. If that is not the case, please update this and we'll look further.
