If the tension is to great on the tension arm the motor can not overcome the tension to start. Disconnect the tension arm from the blade and see if the motor will run. If so the tension was to great. If not test the wiring going into the motor to make sure there are no breaks.

Most likely to quit suddenly is the switch.
My table saw switch broke recently, and at first I thought it was the motor.
Over the years I remember seeing table saws fitted with a handy box and ordinary light switch to replace the table saw switch.
Check for power at motor: Sometimes the wire connection from switch has access box on the motor where you can get in and check for power.

Motor kicks off and has to be reset after just a few seconds, even with a very light load. The saw is unusable.


I would check the power outlet, Make sure you have sufficient amps for the unit. After that I would try and just run the tool under no load. If you still have a problem then I would have to think the motor or related electrical is your problem.

Saw has no power.


Does the motor continue to run, but the arm stops? It sounds like the set screw on the motor shaft is loose. See the exploded view at this link. It's called out as # 97 http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=5682&typeId=3475&documentId=333

Saw blade broke. motor won't run after changing blade. reset wasn't tripped. lite still works so its not in the power cord.help! this is a craftsman 16 in. variable speed scroll saw not used very much....


It would have cost more to have Sears fix the saw than I paid for it, so I got my meter out and by checking the voltage drops across all of the electrical connections in the saw , I determined that the on / off switch was defective. This switch is the same switch used to turn the lite on and off, so I took the switch out of the lite and used it in the saw. I ordered a new switch for the lite and will install it when the new one comes. Thanks for your interest and help. fletcher1
