Delta Table Saw Motor Problem
I have a Delta "Industrial" hybrid table saw with a 1 3/4 hp motor that I bought at Home Depot about 3 years ago. In the last week or so I have been having real problems with it and I'm hoping someone might have some advice or solutions.
The issue is that when I turn it on, the saw only gets up to about to about 1/2 speed and then after about 8 seconds trips the circuit on my panel. I have plugged it into different plugs in my shop on different circuits and the same thing happens.
The motor is very heavy and the belt is held in place by the weight of the motor. I've tried the reset button on the motor itself when turning on the main power but I can't seem to get it to work.
Does anyone out there have any ideas? Could it have something to do with the brushes? To even pull the motor out of the cabinet is a large job due to the weight and the inability to get maneouver around inside the cabinet. I was hoping that for the cost of this machine the motor would have lasted longer than 3 years!
Any ideas or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much, love the forum, has been very helpful over the years!
