Question about Saws
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.
