Question about Ridgid Reconditioned 10" Jobsite Portable Table Saw with Stand

1 Answer

Motor will not start on my Ridgid table saw

I hit the switch and it would not start, but it made a "click". I thought there might be a "reset button" but I could not find one. I by-passed the switch and it made no difference. Any ideas?

Check the brushes and the commutator for wear and buildup between the insulated areas of the commutator..It should be clean and not full ofcopper residue.That will make the motor click only upon triggering the starter switch

Why would ridgid ts2400-1 10" table saw motor race

Electrical motors do not 'race' unless there is an electrical problem... usually with the motor. One other possibility is to check the tightness of the saw blade itself. If a bit loose, it may be be slipping intermittently, causing the illusion that the motor is varying in speed. Lastly, but unlikely is that the start capacitor for the motor is defective.

Can I replace Ridgid 4510 table saw with a simple light switch?

No, the saw can reach peak amp up to 30 amps, too much for a light switch controlling a 15amp circuit. Is something wrong with your switch, I might have another idea.

Where is the fuse located on my Ridgid miter saw?

Most AC voltage saws do not have a fuse. They usually have a built-in breaker or a resettable thermal overload. Look for a pushbutton near the motor.

Ridgid TS3660 10 INCH TABLE SAW TH100085 MOTOR. I need replacement part for thermal cutoff switch. I broke the red button off the switch and now the motor will not start. I cannot find a replacement...

I have been fixing table saws, compressors and other tools with similar motors for several years and I have never been able to find anyone who sells just the thermal switch on these motors. I usually use one from another motor that's burned out if I need one. You'll have to find a repair center that has motors they could take one of these switches out of and sell/give to you. Otherwise, it's a new motor to get one.

Go to and put in your model number. Look at the motor and wiring section. Look at item 16. The motor overload protector. (probably your reset button) WIth saw unplugged, unwire one sid of this switch and test with an ohm meter. You should read through the switch. If it is open then that's why the saw doesn't work. Many of this type of oveload requires quite a push to reset as you're flexing a klixon disc back to make contact. If is open and you can't reset, it's available there although a bit high priced.
