Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw

1 Answer

The model number of the motor is RM871 and it started smoking and then stopped. I took it apart and there was a mass of black melted plastic around the fan and with further investigation of the internal workings by comparing it to the diagram in the manual it appears as if the baffle melted as it is no longer there. I put everything back together and tried it but it still stops and kicks out the breaker.

Black and decker firestorm 12V charger has melted the battery


There are no parts available for these tools. The Firestorm line of tools were involved in a recall around 2002. It is extremely hard to find any Firestorm tool around anymore and ever rarer to find any that work. Most of the problems were centered around melting plastics and some involved smoke and fire.

Why is the trimmer head smoking/melting?


I think the melting is in your the head the feed that hods the line. That's the plastic bit. I have had this happen not just with one brand either. The problem is vibration. if things are not properly balanced the head vibrates, the resulting friction causes heat, that causes more wear and more heat. End of strimmer head! I not buy them two at a time on ebay!

Bobbin winder belt melted


Mine stopped working too. Gave up and wound bobbins by hand for a while until I broke down and took the machine apart -- an ordeal to figure out. I found that a pliable ring on the winder was completely disintegrated (gummy plastic-like stuff). An online search found this -- a bobbin "tire" which I THINK is the part I need: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-winder-tire-brother-x55238051.aspx. Hope this helps. --Also cleaned all the lint out when I had the machine opened up. They don't make it EASY!

It smoked out my house when it was on the drying cycle any ideas?


did you have any plastic in it like a tupperware or anything for a baby?the water sprays so hard that it sometimes pushes plastic cookware or whatever out of the racks and it lands on the heater and melts the plastic,also if overloading the racks the plastic wheels pop off and burn on the heater,if not this then you'll have to kill the power and start looking for a broken wire on the door,amelted wire nut where the power wires are connected to the machine or the motor smoked up,could be anything,were you near the machine when it happened?could you see where the smoke was coming out of,under the machine or inside,also next time send the model number

ENGINE WILL NOT ENGAGE WITH SPINNING SPOOL


I had the same problem, The pully is plastic and is mostlikely melted. I took mine apart when it finally stopped working and found that the belt had broken as well. When taking it apart, there is a hidden screw under the black sticker label. Just feel for the soft spot. Also, there are screws under the black plastic embelishments.

I have a Craftsman table saw with a burned out motor. The motor model number is RM871. Where can I find one for less that the $130.00 that Sears wants for the motor. That's the price of the saw.


SOUNDS LIKE THE PROBLEM I HAD, BUT WAS JUST A SEIZED-UP BEARING. I WENT TO LOCAL ELECTRIC MOTOR REPAIR ($15.74) PARTS AND LABOR, THEY REPLACED THE BEARING, THERE ARE 2 BEARINGS ON IT, COST IS THE SAME FOR EACH. THE BEARING IS PRESSED ON, SO REPLACEABLE. HOPE THIS HELPED

The motor from my reciprocating saw started emitting smoke.


That small black piece, was it somewhat flat? I am thinking that it could be part of the fan or baffle. As far as the smoking when you had it apart how did the windings look on the armature and field? It is possible that this piece of plastic opened up the windings and there is a short in the electrical components. If that is the case I would suggest taking to a repair center to get is looked at. Let me know what you find
