My K760 blade does not spin freely. Sounds like it's binding or rubbing somewhere. Are there bearings in there?

Sounds like you pinched your bar while cutting. take a good look at the guide channel on your bar and see if you ban find a place where its pinched closed. use a screw driver and very carefully open it back up.

    Or, if it's a roller nose, the roller may have wood chips jammed in it.
    Many have holes in the side to allow some view of the roller. See if there are any chips visible there.
    And yes, there is a bearing in there. (The roller nose runs on a set of flat roller bearings)
    In this image, the bearings are the small circles just under the sprocket.

    Play safe, and clean up when your done.

Likely a bad capacitor. Turn off the power and use a stick or long screw driver to spin the blade. If blade spins freely and is not binding up then bearings and motor most likely ok. Capacitor is inside panel, with power off you can at least inspect. If swollen or oily definitely bad.

Blade revs fast, doesnt get up to speed before it binds and smokes.

Remove the belt and try to spin the blade. If it still acts that way, you need to replace the arbor bearings. If it spins easily and smoothly and has no play side to side, then the motor is the problem.

Saw stops when i start cutting 1/2 plywood.

If it actually binds and stops the motor...... it sounds like the motor is bad, the bearings are bad, or the blade is on backwards. If the motor keeps spinning, but the blade stops then the gears are bad or the blade bolt is not tight.

Sx75 blades will not engage when running it stalls if try to engage blades

with the belt loose, and motor off check for free motion of your actual blades. Sounds like one of them may have bound up. Could be a bad bearing, or that something wedged under the deck. Otherwise, I'd recheck the drive belt to make sure it is routed properly and not binding anywhere at all. Also make sure that all the idle pulleys spin freely.

Problem is we have model#113.247210 band saw and it quits,running/ordered new motor and belt/and still blade stops running when I cut a piece of wood/and it is sqealing.

Hello, W/D here.

I'm assuming here that the tension on the belt is set properly.

It sounds like a bearing in one of the wheels is going out, but the squealing sound indicates that the blade guide(s) may be a part of the issue. Here's how to check:
Loosen and remove the blade. Start the machine and listen to the lower wheel bearings. Remove the belt from the pulley on the band saw.
Spin each wheel separately, being careful not to get your fingers hung up. Listen for grinding bearings, slow revolutions compared to one another, etc. If you can isolate the problem, lubricate or replace the bad bearing.
If the bearings check out to be normal, replace the blade. Set the blade guides so that they are close, without touching, and roll the wheels again. Look for pinch points where the blade passes through the guides. If yours is equipped with a roller plate guide behind the blade, check that it moves freely. (I haven't been able to locate a diagram of the model listed, so I'm not sure if you have one or not).
Replace the guard and start the machine. Try running a piece of scrap wood, and try to determine where the blade is binding. Usually, the blade will bind in the guides, but anything that the blade can touch when it is deflected when cutting should be looked for.
This is all that comes to mind. Hopefully it will help you locate the source of the problem.
Best regards, --W/D--

You say you checked everything. I would remove the deck and belt and physically make sure both blades spin freely. Then I'd install the belt and check again, it sounds as though each component works fine alone but when in conjunction with other parts something is binding. Good luck

Blade comes off wheel on horizontal saw have a wilton 7040 horizontal saw. after cutting about 1/2 thrru a piece of metal the blade sticks and then stars comming off the right wheel and starts cutting into...

if its a new blade, make sure that it is the proper length for the saw, sometimes aftermarket blades look like they are the right size but the difference of a few mm can cause the blade to track. if its an old blade, it could just be dull enough that it is binding on the material you are cutting and this draws the blade off the wheels. even if the blade isnt that old or seems sharp, if you have a brand new blade handy that would be the easiest thing to try.

your manual will have instructions on how to adjust the blade guide bearings. if this is a new saw, it SHOULD be set properly and be working from the factory but they may still need to be adjusted. an older saw obviously may have shifted a bit from normal usage. if you dont have a manual one can be downloaded from the wilton tools website.

before adjusting the guides, though, check to see that the bearings spin freely. if they do not spin smoothly with minimum pressure, they need to be replaced. they also should be replaced if they spin VERY freely because this is also an indication that they are pretty worn and may actually be binding up under pressure.

Craftsman 42" Tractor Blade Problem

sounds like either the spindal bearings are shot or maybe the spindal shaft is bent. check for up and down slop at the blades. then turn blades towards each other and check that the heigth lines up. also chec the idler pully to make sure it is not slapping around.

10'' table saw binding?

Sounds like you lost a spacer that goes behind the first flange against the motor bearing, you could use a lock washer if you bend it flat.

spacer washer,
first flange,
second flange,

I think the first flange is rubbing the motor housing.
