Question about Delta X5 3Hp Left Titl Unisaw with Unifence

1 Answer

I recently (8 days ago) changed the starter on my Unisaw. A couple of the wires from the plug on the origional starter were loose, and the saw would kick off as soon as I turned it on. Now my saw has done the same thing. I went to turn it on, it started, kicked off, and it won't start again. The replacement starter was installed per included instructions. There is nothing obviously wrong with the starter, and I checked the motor with a multitester, and could find nothing wrong. Any ideas?

What is the rating of the starter overloads. A more basic question, are they adjustable or the heater type? It sounds like the starter overloads are taking you out. Check the full load amps of the motor you are using against the overload rating. Add 10% to this and set overloads at ths setpoint if adjustable. If heater equipped buy new heaters rated for motor load. Make sure to use the 1 phase rating and not the 3 phase. That is if you are using a 3 phase starter.

My 1999 Ford Contour SE wont start


It's possible that the defective plugs blew out the Ignition Control Module. Are you getting any spark from the plugs? Try removing one of the plug leads, hold it about 1/4" from a metal surface, and have someone crank the engine. You should see a strong spark. If not, then I'd replace the ICM and see what happens.

Delta x5 unisaw 3 hp. couple days ago it was running strong never had a problem before. push start motor tries hard to spin but nothing besides a hot motor barely touch it hot. 10 min later saw starts...


The motor has a component called a clixon (there are other names for it, too). The clixon has a step up coil and a capacitor that gives the motor an extra bit of juice to get started turning. When it fails, you get the kind of thing you're talking about. If you keep trying to use it without this component working, it overheats the windings and shorts the motor out, killing it. You're most likely going to end up replacing the motor now.

Sorry I didn't have better news for you.

Car overheat frequently and at time the engine sound is very loud


Several things can cause this overheating. Have you recently done a:
1. Check Hoses for Leaks
2. Check Radiator for Leaks --- Also, Change Radiator Cap ( can loose pressure there if
cap is bad)
3. Check Water Pump for Leaks. If Water Pump is bad, you will hear a loud noise from it
4 Complete Tune Up? Should be done at least 1x a Yr. Depending on how much you drive the Vehicle. Includes: Plugs, Plug Wires, Gas Filter, Air Breather Filter, PCV Valve, Adjust Timing,
Check Belts -- see if worn
5. Changed your Thermostat & Gasket and have the correct degree Thermostat in the Vehicle?
6.. Had your Radiator Rod and Cleaned out?
7. Temperture Sending Unit (located near Thermostat) could be bad
8. 02-Sensor (Generally located in the Exhaust Manifold - needs a socket with a space in it
to allow the Socket to fit over this top wire of the 0-2 Sensor )
9. Change oil and oil Filter.
10. Change Gas Tank Cap ---

Do all this yearly ( except the Radiator Rod & Clean ( do every 2-3 yrs), and you should not have
any over-heating nor stalling out, etc. and should pass emissions as well.
