Sounds like the saw may have overheated and is now drawing too much current. If the breaker that you mention is protected by GFCI control, try an inside power source.

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

Table saw will run a couple seconds and the thermal reset breaker throws - no problem w/ incoming voltage, I guess it needs replacing?


SOUNDS like if a breaker is thrown,it is possible that you are overloading that branch circuit(meaning there are other working outlets on that circuit) SOUNDS like breaker is working fine.

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.

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.

FOX 254 MM TABLE SAW E36-529 PRESS START SAW STARTS THEN BLOWS TRIP


Making sure the saw is unplugged ( not just turned off ) and using a pair of heavy gloves, grasp the saw blade carefully and see if it turns freely. If not then dis-connect the drive belt from the saw and try again. If he saw turns easily now and make no grinding noises then it appears your trouble is elsewhere. While the belt is dis-connected try to turn the motor my hand. It should turn smoothly but with a little resistance. If it turns ok then we must look elsewhere again.

Look at the specifications plate on the saw to determine how many amps the saw requires to run and then check the rating of the circuit breaker that trips when you turn on the saw. If the saw requires 15 amps to run and is on a 15 amp circuit then it needs to be relocated to another outlet, preferably one with a 20 or 25 amp breaker.

Briggs and stratton generator keeps throwing the circuit breaker


Power tools CAN draw heavy loads if the voltage or frequency is off. Both of those CAN be a fault of the generator.

Check the frequency by plugging in a clock with a moving second hand and time it for 10 minutes against a quartz clock. ALSO do a voltage check with another voltmeter.

The 5500 Watt generator should hold 40 amps. Power tools with induction motors like some table saws take a large starting load near this value AND would be sensitive to low voltage AND especially low frequency, both of which will cause much higher current draw.

One MIGHT have to resort to put an oscilloscope on the output to make sure the waveform of the AC output is normal..

The motor on my delta 10" table saw starts a low rpm and does not go into high rpm - after a a few seconds it fails the circuit breaker, and without the belt conected this does not happen. Is the motor...


This saw tends to have a problem where the belt rides "outside" the V-grove. Check that the belt is actually installed into the V-grove, and that the grove is in line. Mine was installed (at the factory) with the shiv back to front, so the belt would catch, and kick out. Maybe the same issue.

Makita 2704 I overloaded my motor


if the motor RPM drops dramatically when the noise starts, it is probably a dry motor bushing, if this just started, lubricating the motor may just fix it.
