Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw
I have the same problem. I tried to rip a pressure treated 2x10 at a 45 deg. angle and the motor siezed! I ran it slowly, but that didn't help. I tried finding a local electric motor shop that could rebuild it, but everyone told me it would cost more than the $140 that Sears wants for a replacement motor. FYI, if you replace the table saw with a more expensive model, that has a belt drive motor, it probably will last much longer and a local electric shop is sure to have an inexpensive replacement.
By seized is it burnt up or are the bearings just bad, the bearings are minimal but the field/armature would be more. Give me the model number and I will try and find a breakdown and let me know what we are looking for and I will try and help.

Testimonial: "Thanks Rowdy, The motor model is RM871. The table saw is 137.248481. It actually hasn't seized, it still turns very slowly, but makes a terrible noise"
I had similar problem-piece of plastic came loose in the housing and jammed into the armature!

Same problem with my sears craftsman model No. 137.248880. Replaced the brush set. Motor started but makes alot of noise until it gets on speed. Will try replacing the bearings and clean the armature. I should have bought the bigger table saw. This saw is OK for small jobs, but not for what we do. Ripping 2x4s into 4 pieces and cutting long 45' cuts. Foxx
