Re: When I push the start button, the motor starts,
It sounds like a bad switch. The circuitry on that saw is not that complicated and I believe the switch is held in by 2 screws and will lift right out. You can probably test it at radio shack and if you don't want to order an OEM replacement and don't mind an aftermarket looking switch, radio shack can sell you one that will work. Good Luck. I hope this is helpful!

All of the above are correct. However, before you go nuts with motor stuff, unplug the saw and make sure the blade shaft turns freely, If it doesn't, look for something jammed in the belt and pulley mechanisms. Loosen the drive belt and check the motor shaft rotation and the blade shaft rotation separately. If you find nothing, remove the belt and try starting the motor. If it won't start like this (no load) there is a motor problem. If it does start, find the drive mechanism problem and fix it; not many possibilities. Good luck.
sounds like you have a bad motor,when it heats up it's stalling and when you go to restart it there are start windings and run windings in the motor it's not switching over to the run windings so when you hold the start switch in you're sending constant power to the motor,all it does is when you push the button it's a momentary switch power goes to the motor and hits the start winding in the motor should be just for a moment,then it switches over to the run winding and this keeps the motor running,your motor isn't doing this,
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.
The capacitor is probably failing. Take the motor to an electrical service center (most mid-to-large cities have them ... usually something like "Industrial Electric and Motor Service" ... and ask to have it checked. Caps are cheap!
If the motor is trying to start only when you have your finger on the start button but won't continue to run, the run coils in the motor might be bad. If it just buzzes (hums) when you try to start it, the start/run switch in the motor might be bad, or the starter windings might have an open. Either way, it sounds like the motor might need servicing.
The instant you press the button on the console, the motor should start. When it starts a mechanism in the motor operates a switch mounted on the motor (provided w/new motor). That makes a circuit which replaces the action of your finger holding the button by creating a bypass circuit. This bypass circuit takes the start switch completely out of the circuit and keeps the motor running.
Your motor is not making this bypass circuit and needs to be replaced.
Could be a broken belt if you hear motor, also can be defective door switch. you can try pushing door switch with finger and press button If motor does not make a sound and pressing door switch does nothing you will need a volt meter and test for power if you hear moter then its broken belt or jambed drum. Try and manually move drum
disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor How old is this dryer?
