Question about Saws
I was cutting with my 10-in radial saw. I shut it off for a few minutes. When I tried to turn it on, it just buzzed, and eventually blew the circuit. Freezer on same circuit seems to be working fine. What is wrong?
It sounds like the start circuit is shot on the motor of the radial saw. It is trying to start, (the buzzing sound), but the start is not is burnt out, and therefore the run winding is drawing excessive amperage trying to start the motor (a job it is not designed to do) and eventually builds a amp draw in excess of the circuit. You will have to determine which is cheaper a new motor, or a new saw.
Hope this helps
