SOURCE: New or used motor for a Craftsman 10" table saw

You can try Sears but they can be a bit pricey. I use to send out motors for a factory I worked in to a rebuilder who would even do new windings. Check in your area for a rebuilder, As for the replacement being a Sears unit they may have a similar motor in stock. Good luck.

I would check to see that ID of the blade arbor matches the OD of the motor arbor, and you are not missing an adapter ring. Then I would get some acetone and a wire brush clean all surfaces where the blade seats. This is also good practice for Jacobs chucks on drills, that allow the drill bits to spin.

SOURCE: i need the wiring diagram for my 10 table saw

Im guessing ... the motor is 110 volt AC (AC dont care if it is coming or going) ... find the two terminals in the motor and hook the wires back up. If it HAPPENS to be incorrect, the saw will run poorly or the overload will trip.

I wouldnt be afraid to use this method on my craftsman table saw.

Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model number. Look at the motor and wiring section. Look at item 16. The motor overload protector. (probably your reset button) WIth saw unplugged, unwire one sid of this switch and test with an ohm meter. You should read through the switch. If it is open then that's why the saw doesn't work. Many of this type of oveload requires quite a push to reset as you're flexing a klixon disc back to make contact. If is open and you can't reset, it's available there although a bit high priced.

SOURCE: I plugged in my table

First of all, how did you determine that power was getting to the motor? If you can test for power with a voltmeter at the motor connections themselves and show power then the switch is OK and the circuit breaker is not tripped. Turn off power and attempt to turn the blade " CAREFULLY" and if it moves easily then the motor is probably defective and will have to be replaced. After turning the motor and finding it easy to turn, then turn the power back on and try to start the saw again. Be carefull because the saw may start. If the blade will not turn then the motor is definitely defective and will have to be replaced.

Good Luck!

WHEN I USED OLD TABLE SAW WITH UNGROUNDED POWER CORD. I ALSO HAD JIG SAW PLUGGED INTO SAME OUTLET. wHEN I LAID THE JIG SAW ON THE TABLE SAW IT SPARKED AND THE MOTOR ON THE POWER SAW DOESNT WORK. NEX


If you're lucky, there's a circuit breaker built into the table saw motor and a little red button somewhere on the motor to reset it.

When you re-wire it. know that the cord should have a black wire (hot), a white wire (neutral), and a green wire (ground).
When you wire the power cord to the switch, the black wire should be the one that goes directly to the switch contacts and gets disconnected when you turn off the switch. The white wire goes through the rest of the system up to the motor. The green wire grounds out the metal parts that you might touch.

If you have to replace the motor, get a 3450 rpm to 3600 rpm motor. Harbor Freight has one for about $140 before any discount.
I recommend at least 1.5 HP

Powermatic 66 wiring problem


Simple solution: switch two of the wires. Doing so will reverse the direction of the motor. You can switch it at the motor or on the electrical plug end.

Band saw is going in reverse how to i fix that


The motor is AC (alternating current) and only runs in one direction. Therefore, the only way to reverse the saw blade direction is to flip the position of the motor 180 degrees. The teeth of the blade should be pointing down and face to the left when you are standing in front of the saw. The blade should travel down into the table so the blade pushes the work into the table. I hope this helps since it sounds like the blade may be installed incorrectly.

Bosch table saw turns backwards


The field around the motor needs to e replaced. It is kind of simple if you feel up to taking your saw apart. I had the same problem and a wire on the field had burned I noticed it when I pulled the part out.

I was cutting 2" dense foam insulation board,


The problem you have is a faulty field coil, the Bosch saws unfortunatly have a bit of an issue with this. The coil can be replaced separatly so you won't have to replace the whole motor. Bosch has a 1 yr warranty on thier table saw so this is a warranty replacment provided the saw was purchased within the year. If not the coil replacment is still cheaper than buying a whole new saw, but should really be done by a service center because of the level of difficulty of the repair.

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.

Miter saw motor is running back wards


I'd say it was the new wiring that was reversed. Motors cant really start reversing themselves on their own and the only other way it would seem reversed is if the blade was put on backwards...

So yes I think you have the wires reversed when you re-wired the cord.
