Question about Saws

Radial saw motor just buzzes.

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

I am trying to run the delta 10 radial arm saw on 110 but it is running very slowly. Is there some switch or anything to change over from running it on 220 to 110


if this tool is 220 and you are running on 110 that is your problem. Some motors can be rewired to run on the proper current. UNPLUG tool and remove small cover from motor and usually they will have a diagram to show you how to change over. running this on the 110 will burn up the motor.

My craftsman 10-inch radial saw (model#113.199200) just stopped working. I had it in the driveway cutting some wood without any problems.

Need help, please?
