Question about Saws

My Delta band saw motor is having issues. I was

My Delta band saw is having issues. I was using the saw and the saw blade suddenly slowed and stopped. The motor then made a humming sound, but motion wasn't delivered to the saw. The saw itself is not jammed; it still moves smoothly. It seems to be a motor problem to me. Any suggestions?

I would bet it's the Motor Brushes.They are locaded on the housing of the saw, accesed by unscrewing the plug.The brushes are replaceable and your saw will be fixed.Where to buy replacents could be an issue,Check manufacturer or search power tool replacement motor brushes.If stuck you can try to unscrew the plug the brush is at the bottom engaging the motor armerure,there shoud be a spring keeping contact.Inspect brush condition it looks like a carbon block worn to the curve of the motor.Go online do a search on how electric motors work you'll see exactly what I'm explaining.Cheap part easy fix.Good Luck.

The blade will stop in the middle off a cut


A good quality sharp blade may make all the difference in the world, but make sure the belt is not slipping first.
What are you cutting ? Do you have enough HP ? Make sure you're feeding the material properly, not too fast
or not too slow. I suggest you to check the Carbon blades from sawblade.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.

I have a 10" Delta Table saw Model 34-670. I was


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.

The blade on my 28-150 has started popping off the wheel as it slows to a stop after the machine is switced off


This sounds like the blade tension is too low. You might want to keep the tension low when not in use, then tighten it up when you want to use it.

Delta Bench Band Saw Model 28-185 has frozen up. The blade will not move. I topped and cleaned out all debris and let it cool down but it still will not work


You need to find what is jamed. Loosen the blade tension and take the Blade out. Check to see what doesn't move:
Wheels, or Motor. Unjam as required.
