Why won't my saw start?
I have a Jet Hybrid saw, specifically the JPS 10TS. I bought it new two years ago.
I was cutting box joints with an 8" dado set (3/8"). I shut off the saw, reset my jig, and hit the on button. The motor started to spin then stopped. So I hit the off button, hit the on button, and the saw ran just fine. Of course I thought, "that can't be good."
Well, soon thereafter, it did it again. This time however, it wouldn't stay running. After a few toggles of the switch, and now its like there is no power getting to the motor. There is a reset button on the motor but pushing it does nothing. I can't find, what I would consider to be, a fuse anywhere on or in the motor or switch. I can't find any loose connections.
I either have a dead switch or a dead motor... can anyone help?
I should probably add the motor doesn't feel hot and all of the air vents were clear and clean. I've never had any electrical issues with the saw before. I also checked the outlet... it's working properly.
