With the cheapest multimeters costing as little as just a few dollars there is no reason not to have the ability to check things instead of guessing.

With most portable tools and appliances the first thing to check is the power cord because around 60% of the time an internal break is the cause of a tool not starting.

Power tools and appliances often have electronics to provide variable speed or soft start. Checking these is beyond the scope of the home repairer but a multimeter can check continuity to any electronic component and from it to the motor and the ensure there is continuity through the motor.
If everything else is ok the fault is probably with the electronics if there is any. If you are feeling really brave, the final test is to temporarily and safely bypass the suspected component and apply power.

SOURCE: My delta bench top thickness

I have seen various problems with delta planers related to motor humm /not starting. Easy to check. Remove the belt from motor pulley to isolate the motor. The motor should turn freely. If motor turns freely turn on planer and motor should start with a powerful force. If motor will not start and turns very slowly or not at all and humms, most likely capacitor or motor damaged. Test capacitor with meter to with-in + or - 5 percent or mfd rating (if you do not have a meter with capacitor test setting, take to motor shop for free test or replace if capacitor looks burned or leaking oil). You can use generic capacitor with same mfd rating and same or higher volt rating(higher voltage rating is better but the capacitor may be larger and not fit in space allowed). If motor is ok, then suspect debris in system or bearing or bearings at the end of the shafts have failed. With power plug removed from outlet and belt off motor pulley, turn shafts by hand or with belt. Should be fairly easy to turn and feel smooth. If stiff, could be debris or bearing (replace all four bearings). Clean system or use generic bearing. Order by using the number on side of bearing.

You have to register to read the information (BAD, Dewalt. Bad dog.)

Check outlet, try another AC outlet.
Check power cord end to end for damage. Do you have a non-contact AC indicator? (You should) Are you getting AC to the machine?
Check built in fuse or breaker on the tool.
Check the switch, does it feel and sound like it is switching correctly? Or is something different?

Is there a fuse or a reset button on a Ryobi 10 inch surface planer. My planer stopped working after getting too hot. Now, it won't even trn on....

check the motor for a thermal over load button
to stop it over heating take more lighter cuts as the motor is a small motor compared to what the cut can be

Why does my delta portable thickness planer shut off after a few moments

Sounds like the thermistor is killing it. Probably the new brushes are generating too much heat. Did you put them in correctly, so the curved surface matches the armature sleeve?

Is it cold in your shop? The rollers won't work if they're cold because the rubber gets stiff. Clean your rollers also with mineral spirits. Hope that helps.

Hi mmh9894,

Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Could there be a blown fuse to prevent this from starting, I turned it on and the motor stated for about a blip of second, my electrical panel was not triped though

I answer questions for free.
Your model planer might be different than mine.
My 12" planer has a red reset button on the motor.
There could be a loose wire in the receptacle.
Check the receptacle for power.

Your product manual should have an illustration of the reset button.
The power tool companies do not have manuals for every model number, but they have service centers.


U will need to check the power switch 1st, this requires testing a "HOT" circuit and you will need a volt meter and knowledge of electrical testing, if the switch tests ok then the motor is defective and will need to be replaced, this should be performed by a qualified repair center, there are adjustments that need to be done after the unit is pulled apart and the motor replaced to insure correct operation of the plainer
