I believe you have a dead spot in your motor or there is a problem with the start capacitor. Next time it does this, turn the switch off, turn the blade a few degrees by hand and turn it on again to see if it will start. I'm leaning toward the capacitor though a saw this large, it could equally be the motor. The switch is good, right? One leg of the switch is not burned is it?

Let me know what you find out. Post a comment to this question.

Ld lg3788w gas dryer drum won't turn


not a good model number,most likely you have a broken belt as long as it starts,heats but the drum doesn't spin,if you get a buzzing sound and it doesn't start you could have something stuck in the blower wheel,the motor is jammed or the motor is bad,you can open the door,push the door switch in,spin the drum with your other hand and have someone push the start button,if it starts you have a bad motor.

I really have NO idea what's causing your Maytags to misbehave, BUT I can tell you that the Maytag service centers have always been very accommodating when I've called about problems with dishwashers, dryers, and washing machines.They have explained the construction of the appliance and even told me the type of tools I needed to make repairs! If you still have your owner's manual, the toll free number should be in there. I hope this helps!

Most likely to quit suddenly is the switch.
My table saw switch broke recently, and at first I thought it was the motor.
Over the years I remember seeing table saws fitted with a handy box and ordinary light switch to replace the table saw switch.
Check for power at motor: Sometimes the wire connection from switch has access box on the motor where you can get in and check for power.

Radial saw motor just buzzes.


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

The motor start capacitor has failed. Pull it off the motor and go to a motor shop- for a new one.
