What was the verdict?

single normal blade = trip occassionally

3/4" dado blade = trip every time

I bypassed the button on the motor & everything was fine. it started every time. So my question is, what damage could come of bypassing this switch on the motor permanently?
My Craftsman 10" is behaving like this. What did you determine was the problem? And how did you fix it. Thanks!

I had an issue where my Jet saw would not start up. I was worried it was the capacitor as I read in this forum. However, I plugged the saw straight into the outlet rather than using an extension cord, and that solved the problem. Apparently, there was too much voltage drop from the extension cord to charge the capacitor.

My symptoms are identical

My saw works without a blade, with a blade, but trips the breaker with a heavier sanding disc. I would like to know specifically what was the trouble when the heavier dado blade caused the tripping in the post above.
It is not an issue of an extension cord.
