Question about Powermatic 1660802K Model 66 Special Edition 10 Inch Left Tilt 3 Horsepower Cabinet Saw With 30 Inch Accu Fence, 1 Cast Iron Extension Wing, And Table Board, 230 Volt 1 Phase

1 Answer

My Powermatic 66 tablesaw has a 3 phase 230 Vac motor on it but I cannot tell if it is a 3 hp or 5 hp. All the tags are gone from the motor. Is there any way to tell from the serial number? 8666-1008.

There will be a tag on the motor that will give the specs. Sometimes they are hard to see from the underside and its not easy to remove the top see them. Try lowering the motor (with blade removed) all the way and use a digital camera to reach up into the cabinet and photoqraph the top of the motor. I had to take several since your shooting blind to get a picture of mine.

Powermatic 66 wiring problem


Simple solution: switch two of the wires. Doing so will reverse the direction of the motor. You can switch it at the motor or on the electrical plug end.

I have a powermatic 66 table saw. I removed the motor, to move the saw. when i reinstalled the motor, the blade has moved 5/16'' towards the fence.


Check to make sure the arbor set screw is not loose. The bearings may have shifted when you moved it. I recently rebuilt an old 66. Repositioning the bearings and tightening the set screw could be all it needs.

I have a Powermatic model 66 table saw that hums (at the starter switch not motor ) when I turn it on. I just rewired after moving but have checked all connectors with multimeter and I think it is wired...


I am thinking that you have mistakenly crossed 2 or more wires, hopefully you wrote yourself a wiring diagram or there is one inside the motor cover. I don't know if I can find a wiring schematic for this tool. If you still have the owners manual look in there for initial setup and see if they provided one. If you need more help let me know and I will do what I can.

I am trying to find out how old my powermatic 66 table saw is. serial no is 97661400


On the Powermatic 66's the first two numbers are the year in which it was made, so yours was made in 1997. The second set of two numbers is the model. The last numbers I"m unsure of but its my understanding that they represent the manufactured number, so yours was the 1,400th saw made for that year.

I have recently purchased used powermatic 66 Table


That is the current setting for a motor-starter which is an overcurrent sensor. This is a circuit breaker like device that usually has a heater coil that opens a contact which cuts the power to the relay that powers the motor to prevent overload damage to the motor.

The dial is in AMPS and should be set just slightly higher than the nameplate amp rating for the motor.

Our Powermatic PM66 will not start... the motor will run if the contacts are manually engaged but the contacts will not pull in using the start switch


If the motor runs without the switch then the problem is the switch. Pull out and blow it clean of sawdust and try again. Also check the connections at the switch to make sure they are tight.Hook a meter up and turn the switch on to check for continuity. Remember, switches wear out also and need to be replaced.

I have a Powermatic 66 that trips breaker


Either it has a problem with a blade brake or the motor is siezing. Or the is a wiring problem. With the unit unplugged check and see if you can turn the blade by hand, if not the motor is the problem. If it does you could still have a motor problem by it drawing to much amperage or the is a wiring problem.
