Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw

Open Question

I have a old Craftsman table saw from the 1960's. model #113-12070, 1h.p. motor. cat.#1207,cycle 60, 12 amp/ 6 amp, 115 / 230 volts, r.p.m 3450. When I try to start it, the motor makes a loud humming noise then trips the breaker. Is it possible that I have it set on 6 amps when it needs to be 12 amps. Sometimes it starts and other times not. Could it be the capacitor? Thank you.

SOURCE: Motor has started t0 smoke and trips circuit breaker

On the motors I deal with there is a series of numbers that identify the shaft size, hp and all other requirements. I would try and contact a local Grainger and see if they can help, if not try in the yellow pages for a motor repair shop in your area and sometimes they can get you one. Good luck

SOURCE: 20 amp Circuit breaker trips everytime I flip the

I assume that you are using the motor on 115 volt service. Remove the drive belt and check for excess friction in either the saw arbor bearings or the motor bearings. If both seem free to turn, then suspect that the start capacitor on the motor has failed. They usually become open circuited which prevents the start rotation. It will just sit there and hum loudly until the breaker pops. You may also have a defective 20 amp breaker--you will need a clamp-on AC ammeter to verify. Suggest that you run the saw on 230 volt service when you get it running. You will be amazed at the acceleration and apparent power available. My table and radial arm saws are both set for 230 volt operation and love it. Go to: Searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point. This will take you to a series of drawings that list all replaceable parts. Hope this helps!

Which motors will run of a 113-298750 saw. my 62618 no working


You need a motor that is between 3450 to 3600 rpm.
A #56 frame is good, but others may work.
For a table saw, a 1hp will work, but I would recommend at least a 1.5hp
You can get a new one at Harbor Freight for about $140

Often when a table saw motor stops working, its often the on/off switch that's burnt up. Check that out first.

New leeson 3 hp motor for my tablesaw has very little torque, and is less powerful than my old 1hp craftsman motor. What could the problem be?


If the motor is a 115/230 volt motor and is running on 115 volts but the wiring is configured for 230 volt operation, the motor will be weak.

The table saw shutdown where is the restart button


Usually the reset for table saw is on the motor itself
Crawl under the table and check it out & check your motor name plate (use a digital camera to photograph the name plate so you can see it large on your computer and have a record of that information)
Look for oil caps at the bearing ends of motor, to see if your motor can be oiled using 3-in-1 oil

If your saw is shutting down, you may not have enough electricity for the motor
Look at motor name plate for volts amps or watts.
Now figure how much electricity your saw need using the formula Volts x Amps = Watts

Next, look at the circuit breaker and size wire
15Amp breaker = 1440+watts
You can figure the breaker load using V X A = W

Next look at your wire going to table saw
14 gauge wire for 15 amp breaker
12 gauge wire for 20 amp breaker
10 gauge wire for 30 amp breaker

You might benefit by running bigger wire to the saw. And adding some oil in the oil caps.
I oiled my table saw and then ran a dedicated 30Amp wire to it, and it runs real good for a 25-year-old craftsman.

I have a Craftsman 10" table saw, probably at least 50 years old. The motor is dying, model number 113-12070. Where can I get this motor repaired or replaced?


I would go to the nearest electrical company and they will match it up for you.(yellow pages. Probably a ? to ½ hp, so should be reasonable for pricing. You could have it rewound, but would near the same price for new motor. good luck

I have recently replaced my 29 year old craftsman 10" table saw with a new switch. In trying to turn it on, the motor hummed, slightly oscilated and tripped out the wall breaker. I checked the Sears parts...


You may find a replacement motor on ebay. I deal in Craftsman Belt drive table saws, yours looks to be a direct drive. Sorry I wouldn't be much help with those, Jim

1 HP. motor wiring, need help!


Simple to do. Go to the local hardware or home improvement store and get a 6 to 8 foot heavy-duty extension cord. Cut the outlet end (not the Plug end) off, you won't use it. Strip back the outer casing of the cord to expose the three wires, black, white and green.
The Green wire is connected to frame of the motor or saw to ground it for safety reasons.
The White wire is connected to the silver color screw connection.
The Black wire is connected to one terminal of the switch, another wire is connected from the second switch terminal to the brass color screw on the motor.
Plug in the extension cord, and flip "ON" the switch and cut some wood and think of your Grandpa....good guy!
