Sears table saw

I have an older table saw that i bought for $25.00 at a garage sale. the problem is that it is 240 volt/single phase, and i do not have , nor can i run 240 to my garage ( not enough free space in my breaker box) . it is a craftsman saw.
can it ( the motor ) be converted from 240 volt to 110 volt ,and if not, where might i find a 110 vol;t motor to fit it?

    i am sorry but i don't have experience with table saws, i am sure that if you were able to change it to 110v it would have 220/110 on the motor somewhere.

Buy a new 110v motor.Tho the current will higher and get a motor with the horse power and same motor base # so that the mounting holes and the shaft size and position match the old motor.

Why not install a few mini-breakers in the panel to give you more space. You probably won't be using this saw 24/7, right?

I need a motor RM870

go e-bay and type in electric motors in the search section
what you will be looking for is an electric motor with the following properties
240 volts
rpms the same as your motor or within 150 rpms
single phase
60 cycles
shaft size the same as yours and the foot mount measurements for the 4 bolts and distance from the face to the drive puller so that it aligns with the rest of the saw

I have 110 volts n each leg but not 220 across both why??

In a traditional North American residential electrical panel (120/240 volt, single phase), installing a single width or single pole circuit breaker, you would expect to read 120 volts from the breaker terminal screw to either ground or neutral. A double width or double pole breaker would provide 120 volts from either of the breaker terminal screws to ground or neutral AND it will provide 240 volts BETWEEN the TWO breaker terminals.

A single-width circuit breaker case that contains two handles is NOT a two pole circuit breaker (these are called "tandem" or "1/2 size" breakers). This is because a single width breaker engages only one "line" in the panel. A double width breaker will engage 2 "lines" as a triple width breaker would engage 3 "lines" of a 3 phase panel. A single wide breaker can not physically engage more than 1 "line" so it will never be able to pass 240 volts.

You must install a double width / double pole breaker to safely supply a 240 volt circuit / device.

My limited research indicates this heater is designed for USA electrical systems. That would mean single phase, 240/208 volts, 60 Hz. The drawings I reviewed shows a 2 pole, 240 volt breaker feeding each heating circuit. That means no "neutral wire" goes to the heater and therefore no 120 volts is needed. This is good. Kenya's system is single phase, 240 volts, 50 Hz. The heater should work reasonably well on the African system. Connect the power just like you would in the US.

Motor burned

Single phase 220 volts actually uses two 110 phases to deliver 220 volts. So the failure was caused by something else. The motor winding insulation may have been cracked or previously damaged by high current. The solution is to replace the motor or have it refurbished (not cheap).

Unisaw single phase 3hp magnetic starter keeps blowing actuator coil

Should check the voltage on the coil if its a 220 volt saw could have a 120 volt coil

Single phase motor 220 convert to110v; do you have switch wire inside the motor

There should be a label showing the change, one wire gets switched over to a different screw, all motors are different, but all basically the same, some will not switch. It would be just as easy to run a new line to your motor and it will be right, single circuit, 220 volt,?amp, no worries., Your motor as is will not run in 110 volt mode at all. Hope this helps.

My table saw will not start. the power source is good.

If the motor is using a single phase supply there will be a capacitor which could have reduced in value- open.
If so try and use a capacitor in parallel to see if the motor works-- in this case the motor might hum and get heated up.

Hi I have the same problem - I think it may be the capacitor by the motor which has failed - I have just ordered a spare which I hope will fix the problem. Check the capacitor for any signs of damage ie. explosion!!
