Question about Powermatic Saws
This saw had a square d 230 volt single phase starter on it. It would hum at startup but worked for a while then quit starting the saw. I thought the internal switch might be the problem so pulled motor and had it replaced along with new bearings. So motor ran fine at motor repair shop. Installed motor hooked up wires would not start. Ordered new NHD Powermatic starter switch and put it on still not starting. I have been looking on line for answers to this and may have a clue to a fix this switch has a dial that is set at 18 amps I think my saw motor need 14? Does anyone have advice>
It is not the switch. it is the start run capacitor. it is located under the hump on the motor. becarfull when you uncover it, it may still hold a charge. after you have removed the cover you must replace that shiny things that has all the wires in it. careful to put the wires back that way thy came. and get a capacitor with the same UF Microfarits.

That is the current setting for a motor-starter which is an overcurrent sensor. This is a circuit breaker like device that usually has a heater coil that opens a contact which cuts the power to the relay that powers the motor to prevent overload damage to the motor.
The dial is in AMPS and should be set just slightly higher than the nameplate amp rating for the motor.

I am thinking that you have mistakenly crossed 2 or more wires, hopefully you wrote yourself a wiring diagram or there is one inside the motor cover. I don't know if I can find a wiring schematic for this tool. If you still have the owners manual look in there for initial setup and see if they provided one. If you need more help let me know and I will do what I can.
