Sears 10 inch Radial Saw wont run

While using saw to rip a 2x6 blade stuck before i could shut it down damage done. The circuit breaker did not kick out neither did the reset on the saw motor. We had the capacitor checked but its fine. Any help will be appreciated . I have had the saw for more years than i can count. Richard

Try blowing out the motor with compressed air, while rotating the blade by hand. (unplug it first.) Then press really hard on the reset, as sometimes they won't move much at all but will have popped. Use a center punch gently if you have to to push on it. If that doesn't yield results, I'd try spinning the blade by hand a bit and then pulling the start switch to turn the motor on. I once got one to crank up again by doing this, and it continued to work afterwards. (Be careful!) Seems like they are like old starters sometimes that get dead spots in the windings....
I know those are pretty basic ideas, but I have one I've managed to keep running for years as well, and would hate the thought of having to replace it... Also seems to me once I had to remove the cover from the motor and repair a shorted wire inside that was touching metal somehow. And that was only apparent after a similar jam of some sort, as I recall...
Best of luck and encouragement, anyway!

Hi, am looking for the 2 spacers and the neut that hods the blade on to a 10 inch craftsman radial arm saw and was curious if I could purchase one thank you


contact craftsman manufacturer spares to see if they are available
one washer will have a slot across the back and is the driving washer for the blade
the front washer will be flat and is the clamping washer
most manufacturers use generic products here so check for washers from other 10 " saws ( appliance repair shops , junk yard shops etc)

The manual writer may have confused knobs or may have used different terminology to identify the same part. A call to Sears might clarify this issue, but then again maybe not. Check operation of all apparent knobs and you may locate the correct ones.

Need fence for radial arm saw


Most guys will attach a sacrificial particleboard sub top about 24" deep (per model) then towards the back of the saw attach a 3-4" square particle board rip, screw it down, then attach a 5/4 to 6/4 square maple fence approx. 4" tall and attach that to the 3-4" wide rip of particle board. then place a additional particleboard top in front of the maple fence. That will give you a 3-1/4" tall fence. all you would need to do is sqare it to the blade and attach it to the saw. Hope this helps
