Sounds like you may have overheated the motor. I'm surprised the overload on the motor didn't trip first. With this overheating, the windings in the motor have basically shorted out to ground. This is why your breaker is tripping. Rewinding the motor is no longer the option these days. You can try going online to www.searspartsdirect.com

Go to searspartsdirect.com 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.

Don't have all the answers you want, but may be able to help with the dado question. The 137 generally points to Rexon-Tradesman. A brand sold here by Lowe's.
My table saw is 137.248800 which will Not accept an 8" dado blade set.
You may have purchased the 8" dado set. Try the 6" size, if your saw has a 5/8" arbor. My dado set is the Freud (SD206) carbide version. My saw will accept only up to 1/2", maybe 9/16" dado setup.
The cabinet saws typically use the 8" dado set, capable of up to 3/4".
You should also be able to get the parts that you need at Sears.
