Bearings are made to be replaced and are a standard size. Either present the shaft size, the recess it fits into size and the width and any bearing dealer will supply you the required item. When you do buy a bearing ask for a 2RS bearing. That means that it has rubber seals on both side of the bearing. Or take the sample with you, even if it is in pieces. Also, the bearing number is usually stamped on the side of the outer race, something like 6201 or 6201 2RS.
Bearings can be difficult to remove, especially if they have fallen apart and the balls have come out. To get the inner race off a shaft, the easiest way is to grind the race on one spot almost to the shaft and then give it a whack with a hammer and it should crack in the ground face. The outer race can be levered out of the housing or if it is too tight, drill two 1/8" holes through the housing opposite each other so that you can knock the race out with a pin punch. Refitting the bearing (replace both of you can) - slide the new bearing onto the shaft after giving it a light rub with a fine abrasive material and giving it a light smear of thin oil, tap it down until it bottoms on its flange, when both bearings are on the shaft, press it into the housing and assemble the motor again - that's it.

Table saw squeals and trips the reset. Is the motor shot?

It could be the motor bearings or the bearings on the spindle shaft. Also look to see if there is any debris in the throat plate area that might be slowing down the blade. causing an overload on the motor.

Motor makes horrible noise

It could be the bearings in the motor are bad. When you turn the saw on does the motor pulley turn. If not the motor shaft could be turning inside the pulley. Make sure the pulley is not loose on the motor shaft. If the motor just hums without spinning it has an internal within the motor itself

Have a Craftsman 10" Model 113.241691 table saw

I have the same table saw. Mine has done that for the past 25 years and I've always considered that it's just the flexible shaft coming up to speed. It's never given me any problems so haven't looked into any further.

Nut that holds the blade loosens after one cut. saw also runs loud and rough. believe is it related to the "gears" and cause of the nut loosening.

Sounds like a bearing is shot and rattling up the works there. Rock the blade back and forth and see if there is any play in it, check the bearing at the other end of the shaft. Is this one of those skil saw motor saws? Or is the motor hanging down below the blade? Need to know that before I can tell you what it is.

Sears table saw model #137221940. need instruction to take motor apart to replace bearings

Page 23 of the manual (link below) shows an exploded view of your saw. This might be of some help to you. But the Sears parts site had no drawings available for the motor (part 940136)
If you have never take an motor like this apart, and if it is similar to motors used in belt-driven saws, then it might also be helpful for you to know that the four surprisingly long and skinny bolts that run parallel to the motor shaft do have to be removed, then you can carefully pull the ends off of the motor.
If this has been helpful, please vote.
