Is the table required voltage the same as your mains supply voltage
if it is right take it back for a warranty check
check the wattage ( hp) rating for the motor as many have a low power motor to start with and are meant to cut thin material
the slow start( soft start) could be a safety feature or it could indicate a faulty item

Sounds like a 220 volt saw plugged into 110 volts?

I have a delta 34-670 10 inch table saw. Checked switch and breaker, both are good.Across the plug checked with ohm meter shows open. Does this mean brushes are bad or are motor windings bad?


indicates a motor problem
could be a brush worn out or stuck off the armature as there should be a resistance reading of sorts
take the motor in for an electrical check and diagnosis

Skill saw table saw model 3400.Bypassed on off switch still no power?Does motor have a breaker on inside?


I have the same saw.

Sorry but this question has to be asked, is the AC (Alternating Current) outlet working/ an live outlet? Had to ask.

If outlet is good move on to the next steps.

Take an ohm meter / continuity meter.

With the AC power cord unplugged from the AC wall outlet.

Place the two test leads from the meter onto the plug prongs .

With the switched closed/ON, you should get zero ohms (or very low, close to zero/ continuity).

In your case you probably will not have any continuity because it doesn't turn on.

Now comes the fun part trying to find the problem/ open connection.

Lots of possibilities.

  1. The AC cord could be bad at the plug end.

  2. The AC cord could be bad at the point entering the table saw.

  3. The motor could be bad.

  4. The brushes in the motor could be bad.

  5. The field winding in the motor could be open/bad.

The plan is to ohm/continuity check the path of the power going to the motor, (both sides of wiring).

While meter leads are on the AC plug end, wiggle the strain relief ends. You have an intermittent connection.


TROUBLE: SAW WILL NOT START

PROBLEM 1. Power cord is not plugged in.

2. Fuse or circuit breaker tripped.

3. Cord damaged.

4. Burned out switch.

REMEDY 1. Plug saw in.

2. Replace fuse or reset tripped circuit breaker.

3. Have cord replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

4. Have switch replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

I have a TS300 table saw and the blade does turn immediately when power upped, the blade speed seem low, and the blade easily stall when cutting - even 1/4" ply.


There are two windings in the motor, a starting winding and a running winding. There's also a centrifugal starting switch in the motor that switches from the starting winding to the running winding once the motor gets up to speed. Sometimes the switch can get stuck and you almost have to give the blade a spin with your hand to get it moving-- and then it moves slowly till it picks up speed.
A rating on that saw complains it doesn't have a whole lot of power, but yours doesn't sound like its under-designed -- it sounds like there's something wrong. Does it smell hot when running? Does the arbor turn freely? Are you using a long extension cord? (dont!)
I hope you don't need a new motor ($255)
If you do, I'd sell the thing for parts on CraigsList and look for another saw in the same place. I bought one table saw on craigslist for $60 and another for $45. (You might have to watch the listings every day for a year or so to get those kind of prices.) Both of the ones I bought are belt-drive contractor's saws with a 1.5 hp motor outside the box on the back side of the 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!

Check nameplate on motor for amp draw, and then check that against your breaker and wire size.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire2.html

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.

Make sure the motor is not bound-up by turning the shaft somewhat. Suspect a faulty power switch for the motor, also check for a thermal breaker on the motor--push to reset. It is not likely that the motor windings could have gone bad. Does the motor 'hum' when turned on? A start capacitor could have failed in that case. Contact the selling dealer for warranty help if you can't get it running again. Hope this helps!

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

Hello, the brushes are two gray sprung loaded electrical conductors. They are located on the inner main spindel of the motor (armature), when they start to wear out you will find that most electrical motors will slow down in revolutions. Experience has taught me that when an electrical motor emits smoke it has normally burnded out the armature. This in all honesty is not worth fixing as it is an expensive job, it is cheaper to buy a new saw. Sorry to convey bad news but I hope this clarifies thing for you.

Delta Table Saw stopped running


I have a table saw that the cord from the motor plugs into the the back of the on/off switch. I yours is configured like that, unplug the motor cord from the back of the switch and plug it in to the wall and see if the motor will run. If so replace the switch.

Table saw starts slow and the stops


Sounds like the run capacitor has given up. Or, maybe the worst is it overheated and burned the motor winding. You'll probably have to take it apart. If there is a smoked capacitor, that's probably the one you should replace. If the winding is scorched, might as well get a new motor. If both are the case, then replace the capacitor before you give up on the winding.
