Hi,
I am looking at the Manual now, here are the solutions they suggest.
-Shorted capacitor-have capacitor tested
-Starting switch not operating-have switch replaced
-Loose or broken connections-have wiring checked and repaired
-Burned switch contacts(due to extended hold in periods caused by low line voltage) Have switch replaced and request a voltage check from the power company (thats word for word from the manual)

I hope this helps

All the outlets and lights in the garage quit working. We know the fuse in the box is working and cannot find a GFI on the circuit. We tested the wires and they appear to be hot. Any ideas?


All newer construction will have a gfci on circuits run outside (including garages) find the gfci it may be under the house. If it's a breaker it needs to be switched off fully then switched on, sometimes breakers have popped but don't show visible signs
Good luck
Most saws have breakers some also have online fuses check it out

Skill saw table saw model 3400.Bypassed on off switch still no power?Does motor have a breaker on inside?


I have the same saw.

Sorry but this question has to be asked, is the AC (Alternating Current) outlet working/ an live outlet? Had to ask.

If outlet is good move on to the next steps.

Take an ohm meter / continuity meter.

With the AC power cord unplugged from the AC wall outlet.

Place the two test leads from the meter onto the plug prongs .

With the switched closed/ON, you should get zero ohms (or very low, close to zero/ continuity).

In your case you probably will not have any continuity because it doesn't turn on.

Now comes the fun part trying to find the problem/ open connection.

Lots of possibilities.

  1. The AC cord could be bad at the plug end.

  2. The AC cord could be bad at the point entering the table saw.

  3. The motor could be bad.

  4. The brushes in the motor could be bad.

  5. The field winding in the motor could be open/bad.

The plan is to ohm/continuity check the path of the power going to the motor, (both sides of wiring).

While meter leads are on the AC plug end, wiggle the strain relief ends. You have an intermittent connection.


TROUBLE: SAW WILL NOT START

PROBLEM 1. Power cord is not plugged in.

2. Fuse or circuit breaker tripped.

3. Cord damaged.

4. Burned out switch.

REMEDY 1. Plug saw in.

2. Replace fuse or reset tripped circuit breaker.

3. Have cord replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

4. Have switch replaced by an Authorized Skil Service Center or Service Station.

I was cutting a plywood and pulled the saw back through the cut, before the blade came to a complete stop. Now it will not turn on. Is there a reset switch or a failsafe that tripped when I did that?


Good afternoon Rebecca.

Some of the answer will depend on your make/model. Saws will generally have some failsafes inside to keep them from getting damaged, but lets start with what you have. You say you pulled the blade back through the cut before the blade came to a stop. That was probably OK - you generally don't want to stop the saw in the middle of material since it might pinch or jam against incoming wood.

If there is not motion, the foremost question is whether it's a saw problem or a power problem. To that end (please be careful here - unexpected saw starts can hurt you very badly)
  1. With the saw unplugged, can you move the blade at all? There may be a fair amount of resistance through the worm gear to the motor, but it should move. If it's totally jammed, you may want to try removing the blade and checking for debris jammed in the saw
  2. If the saw is plugged into another outlet that you know has power, will it turn on? If not, focus on the saw, if it works, focus first on the outlet.
  3. Is there power to the outlet? Plug something else that you know works into the outlet and see if it will turn on. If not... check if it's a GFI outlet and try resetting the breaker buton in the middle of the outlet. Then check the breaker panel that serves that plug and see if a breaker tripped. this could be particularly possible if it's a 15 amp circuit and you were, say, cutting a heavy thickness of plywood. Try re-setting the breaker then and see if the outlet turns back to life.
Some saws may have an overheat breaker, which will require you to just let the saw cool for a while. others may have a fuse, but the location will depend on the particulars of the model.

Hoping this helps.
Good Luck!

Bosch 71/4 wormdrive keeps flipping breaker


If the saw is tripping breakers, either you are trying to run the saw on a circuit that can't handle the amps the saw needs to run or something is wrong with the saw that is making it draw more amps than it should.
Power supply: You should be on a 15 amp circuit or higher for this saw. Popping breakers can also be caused by using long or low guage extension cords or a low guage power cord on the saw. The saw should have a 14 guage power cord on it and extension cords should not be lower than 12 guage if 50 feet long.
Saw: You've already replaced the cord & switch, if the brushes are OK, look to the mechanics of the saw. The blade should turn freely and smoothly by hand with the saw unplugged. Things to look for are a lack of lubrication in the transmission, binding or broken gears in the trans and binding or seized bearings on the armature or worm gear set. Also, a dull blade forced through wood will also cause the saw to be overworked and draw enough power to trip breakers.

Are you plugged into a GFI receptacle? If so maybe you have to reset the GFI. I would also check for loose wires on the switch or plug and make sure your cord is good.

Trying to cut any size piece of wood the saw blows the circuit breaker at the panel 1x4 piece


Are you operating the saw on a 10 amp circuit or with a long extension cord? Table saws need at least a 15 amp circuit and should not be used with an extension cord. If absolutely necessary the extension cord should be no less than 12 guage. Tabel saws will run OK on a 10 amp circuit but as soon as you apply a load (try to cut wood) the power requirements go up to keep the saw turning. If you can, plug it into another outlet on a higher capacity circuit breaker or at least closer to the breaker box. If it still pops the breaker you may have bearing problems in the motor that are creating too much friction. This would make the motor work harder to turn so it would draw excessive power and trip the breaker.

I plugged in my table saw and everything worked just fine. I unplugged it, and then came back a few minutes later and turned on the table saw again. This time the motor was not running. Power was getting...


First of all, how did you determine that power was getting to the motor? If you can test for power with a voltmeter at the motor connections themselves and show power then the switch is OK and the circuit breaker is not tripped. Turn off power and attempt to turn the blade " CAREFULLY" and if it moves easily then the motor is probably defective and will have to be replaced. After turning the motor and finding it easy to turn, then turn the power back on and try to start the saw again. Be carefull because the saw may start. If the blade will not turn then the motor is definitely defective and will have to be replaced.

Good Luck!

Make sure the motor is not bound-up by turning the shaft somewhat. Suspect a faulty power switch for the motor, also check for a thermal breaker on the motor--push to reset. It is not likely that the motor windings could have gone bad. Does the motor 'hum' when turned on? A start capacitor could have failed in that case. Contact the selling dealer for warranty help if you can't get it running again. Hope this helps!

Does not turn on. The wood was at an angle and jammed when it quit working


Hello. I recommend that you check your circuit breaker or fuse which is in the house panel and feeds the outlet that your saw is plugged into.
I believe that you will find that you solution is to reset the breaker or change the fuse.

Dewalt ds2400 wet saw will through in line breaker not start


sounds like the breakers working to good,i would by pass the reset switch,most likely that switch is bad anyways,we always plug our saws into a outlet box that has a breaker in it ,you know those reset switches are stupid, by pass the reset switch like it wasnt even there,and if that works i would replace the whole cord with a new 1,and buy a 5 dollar junction box that has a breaker in it,i dont know if there is a seperate plug on that saw where u plug the water pump into, if there is i would check that plug first before you bypass the switch.good luck chad
