The problem you have is a faulty field coil, the Bosch saws unfortunatly have a bit of an issue with this. The coil can be replaced separatly so you won't have to replace the whole motor. Bosch has a 1 yr warranty on thier table saw so this is a warranty replacment provided the saw was purchased within the year. If not the coil replacment is still cheaper than buying a whole new saw, but should really be done by a service center because of the level of difficulty of the repair.

My say stops rotating during cutting


Does the motor stay running when the blade stops? If so the belt could be slack if belt driven or the gear teeth could be worn. If motor stops it could be you are putting too much pressure on the saw and the wood is dense or you have an armature fault.

How to replace temperature sensor in Whirlpool water heater


Whrilpool will send information.
Copy following link for resources, including images showing temperature sensor (thermister):
http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Whirlpool-energy-smart-part.jpg

Remove cover on outside of tank.
The foam insulation is very stout, and must be cut back to access sensor located above each element.
Insulation must be put back when finished.
After insulation is cut back, it appears you can remove the sensor... I am assuming the wiring can be unplugged, or spliced. It is not possible to replace wires that run between sensor and top of tank because the foam insulation is too tight and wiring is not inside a conduit.

I own a Hitachi 10CFR Table Saw. My question is: Can I load a Dado Stack onto the Arbor of this table saw to create a 3/4 dado cut? I've read everything from "Yes" to "Absolutely Not"...


After doing some research, I found that hitachi only recommends up to a 1/2 dado for this machine with most of the users agreeing that it probably does not have the stability or power to run a 3/4 inch safely. Meaning you probably can run the 3/4 but at you own risk.

I'm a wife with a do-it-yourself knack. I recently purchased a Ryobi 10 in. BTS211 table saw. I find the manual complicated as far as how to actually use the device. Can you recommend where I can get...


I am a retired contractor.
I have a shop with a 10" table saw.
And I have opinions about safe operation.

For safety, turn saw off when making adjustments.

1) Raise blade:
There is a handle you turn to raise the blade.
If you are cutting 1/2" plywood, then set your blade at 3/4" or a bit more.
Keep blade low and away from hands.
Keep hands high and away from blade.

For 1-1/2" thick 2x4, I usually set the saw at 1" and run the board through, and then flip the board over and run it through again, taking 2 passes to make really thick cuts.

2) Blade angle
There is a second handle you turn to set blade at an angle up to 45 degrees
Angle cannot be set if saw blade is fully raised >> lower blade to half way or less and experiment.
Angle cuts are difficult if wood is not perfectly flat and square, or too long or too short (boy is that helpful ... but cutting angles takes some experimentation)

3) Table Guide
You stand behind power saw to operate
The saw table guide is on left side of blade and clamps across the table
The guide markings show inches >>> these are usually approximate
To set guide for accuracy, measure distance from blade to saw guide, and then clamp guide down.

4) Push sticks push sticks push sticks and other safety stuff
Let me emphasize safety first last and always
A table saw will chop your fingers off in a blink
On the plus side, I hear it doesn't hurt. But OMG.
There is a very strong human instinct to reach in with your hand when working on stuff
Train your mind >> if the saw is running, do not lean or reach into the saw
If a board is stuck >>> turn off the saw and wait for full stop
If you wear baggy clothes of a loose shirt, the saw will grab you and pull you in too fast for you to react
Keep your clothes tight and your arms bare

Always use push sticks or push boards::
673c22b.jpg
Notice the saw blade is set low
Two push sticks are used to assist when cutting short board > one stick holds down the board ahead of blade, the other stick is pushing board through saw.
Keep your hands away from the blade no matter what.
The person stands behind and to the side of the board being cut.
The cut wood is supported by a catch table (in this case there are rollers)

Where to stand
Obviously you stand behind the saw to cut wood, and sometimes with long pieces, you can move in front and pull them through, and sometimes with large plywood you stand kinda back and to the side.

Why not stand directly behind a saw? Because saws throw stuff back.
When 'ripping' a board lengthwise as shown in photo above, if the saw catches the board just right, it will throw it backwards like a spear.

If a board 'binds' the saw causing saw blade to stop, then turn off saw, back up the board, and cut again.

Crosscut guide
The saw comes with a T-shaped guide that fits into a groove.
This is a 'push stick' >>> you use it to cross cut a board, and it lets you stand to the side of the saw blade so things wont flip back on you
When using the cross cut guide, remove the table guide that clamps across the saw, or push the table guide WAY back so pieces don't get caught in a bind and the blade flips up the piece and hits you in the face
Remember, the saw throws everything backwards

The saw is strong and fast, and you are best when traveling slow and without rush around your strong friend.

I have a thru-wall unit that is draining out of the back and cooling just fine. My problem is the hole in which the ac goes thru. There seems to be some condensation on the bottom of the unit that drips...


you are correct the gap needs to be closed, i would suggest the double taped insulation they use on pick up truck when you put a topper on, as if you ever need to remove unit it would be easier then the expansion foam. Hope this helps Tim

I have a Partner K700 Active II block saw that loses rpm's after cutting 2 blocks. I can't get the RPM's up until the saw is totally cooled down. Does anyony have any ideas what might be causing it?


Check the muffler for plugging. Clean or replace the air cleaner. Check the spark plug condition. Preset both H and L jet screws 1-1/2 turns back from CW stops. The saw will run with these basic settings. Warm the engine up and pull the throttle full on. Adjust H for high speed, but 4-stroking. It should smooth out immediately when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L for smooth idle, but rich enough to allow the engine to follow the throttle. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain just stops turning. Make sure the chain is being oiled and not too tight.

I have AH-D210 headphones and the wires have been cut. Can the end piece(jack)be attached to the cut end?


If the cord is long enough take the foam ear protector off the left phone and look for screws on the speaker plate. Once the speaker is exposed take note of the colors of the insulation to each wire. The right side will have a separate wire running from a junction point to the lright phone.

Circular saw costs


The more compact design, in which the motor sits alongside the blade — starts at around $100. There are many saws on the market under this price, but they're not as powerful, nor are they built for a lifetime's use. Professional-grade sidewinders, which run quieter and cut through dense wood better, cost between $125 and $150.

Paper feed


Your printer is politely asking you to please get a torch, and open the lid of unit and thoroughly check inside all over for a tiny jam of paper or something else. I am willing to bet you will find some jam. I would also switch it off, and wait a while before turning on and printing again. Good luck

Water Dispenser freezes


I have a 3 year old GE GSL25 refrigerator with the water/ice dispenser on the freezer door. Even when setting the freezer at 2 and turning the fridge's lower drawer to the warmer "cheese" setting, the water dispenser line would freeze every few weeks. If you have this problem, first verify that the water filter (back of the fridge) is not clogged and that water flows from the water line at the bottom left corner of the freezer door (disconnect and press water delivery dispenser-see owners manual).
I used the hair dryer recommendation to unfreeze the line by heating the flat area of the freezer door directly behind the water dispenser area (~10 min did it). The trick to keep if from freezing up again involved buying a cheap foam sleeping bag mattress (~1/3 inch or 1 cm thick) made of a polyurethane foam (pretty dense). I cut it to match the flat area of the freezer door behind the water dispenser and taped it to the door with packing tape. For the past 3 weeks (even with freezer at #4 setting), my water is flowing freely. Personally, I think this solves a product defect with insufficient insulation in the freezer door near the dispenser water line.
