Old Craftsman Table Saw Problems
I have a Craftsman Table Saw serial model 113.19063. The saw has worked flawlessly for years until recently. When I turn the switch on the motor makes a buzzing sound and the blade does not spin. Eventually the breaker will trip. The belt and blade spin freely when the saw is off so there's nothing holding it up. Ive read these older models are notorious for collecting dust in the motor. I removed it and cleaned out a considerable amount of sawdust. After cleaning the motor doesn't even make the "buzzing" noise anymore. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts. Electric motors are not my specialty.
I should also add. before cleaning I noticed the on/off switch got fairly hot. Is it possible the switch is just burnt out? Thanks in advance!
