Get down to the basics. The problem is either in the motor or in the blade shaft. Take the belt off the saw. With power off, turn the shaft of the motor.It should move freely. If not your bearings may need lubrication, etc. Next turn on the mnotoer with the belt off. If it doesn't operate satisfactorily, windings may be a problem or if it won't start properly, it could be the capaitor on the motor. Lastly, check the arbor shaft to make sure it is moving smoothly.

Good Luck. Gene

2 questions re Craftsman Tablesaw 137.218072 since the young men in that dept at our Sears did not know what a table saw was!


You can find a nice quality feather board that will fit your table saw from www.leevalley.com. They have one that comes with both 5/8" and 3/4" table bars and sells for about $15. I have one and it works great, Look under the Woodworking tab and type in feather boards. Look at the brand Versatile Featherboards. http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=60022&cat=1,240,45884,60022 You may want to call Lee Valley to see if they have a zero clearance insert that will fit your saw. Otherwise, order a new insert from Sears Parts Direct. From the picture on their website I believe it comes as a blank and you will need to cut the new opening in the insert. To do that lower the saw blade all the way below the table top, install the new insert, move the rip fence over top of the insert but not over where the saw blade would penetrate, turn on the saw, and slowly raise the blade up through the insert.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

Check nameplate on motor for amp draw, and then check that against your breaker and wire size.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire2.html

If table saw worked on the breakers before and suddenly stopped working, then see if you can lubricate motor bearings >> look for oil cap on each end of motor and use 3-in-1 oil.
Clean the saw and make sure there's nothing rubbing against drive belt and that saw blade rolls easily when saw is turned off.

Sears 10 inch Radial Saw wont run


Try blowing out the motor with compressed air, while rotating the blade by hand. (unplug it first.) Then press really hard on the reset, as sometimes they won't move much at all but will have popped. Use a center punch gently if you have to to push on it. If that doesn't yield results, I'd try spinning the blade by hand a bit and then pulling the start switch to turn the motor on. I once got one to crank up again by doing this, and it continued to work afterwards. (Be careful!) Seems like they are like old starters sometimes that get dead spots in the windings....
I know those are pretty basic ideas, but I have one I've managed to keep running for years as well, and would hate the thought of having to replace it... Also seems to me once I had to remove the cover from the motor and repair a shorted wire inside that was touching metal somehow. And that was only apparent after a similar jam of some sort, as I recall...
Best of luck and encouragement, anyway!

Motor not working on Delta table saw: I just got a used Delta table saw for free, the previous owner said the motor wasn't working. I wonder if it could just be a switch... how could I check that? I also...


Ok, the motor turns, but throws sparks on the brushes. This is normal to an extent for universal motors used on that type of equipment.

Try reassembling the saw, and put a blade on it, then try it. If it runs, try cutting a piece of scrap 1x, both crosscut & rip. If the motor can't hold the load, you may still have to replace it.

Saw will not run


I had the same problem several months ago with a craftsman (shut down during a long rip), and the reset switch had tripped but did not actually pop out. I tested everything in the line between the power supply and the motor, and found out that the reset switch was not conducting. I was able to reset it manually before re-installing it into the saw, and it's been fine ever since. I'd test that before you start pulling the motor out, it would be a much easier fix if the switch was just sticking.

I just bought this saw used off of e-bay. Got it home check to see if it would run, It did. The next day got the saw out and nothing. By passed the breaker and the switch and it ran fine. Ended up taking the switch out and apart I found that there is a rocker inside that either rocks in one direction (off) or the other direction is (on). the on side has a contact similar to a points contact on an older vehicle. Mine had some saw dust between the contact thus no power. wiped it out and the saw was fine.
