Old House? (Wiring)

Aluminum wiring problem in a late 1960s to mid 1970s house?

Trying to run the saw on a 15 Ampere (14 gauge) circuit?

Dull blade?

Blade with no set?

Incorrect blade for task?

Too many teeth on the blade?

RAS power cord issues? (Replaced too small gauge? Broken wire strands at switch connection, broken wire strands at plug?)

Starting switch (Centrifugal) not dropping out?

I'd check the brushes....a pic of the saw may help someone identify the model (or get very close).

Have you blown out the motor? One of the craftsman RAS that I had was doing the same thing until I blew out the motor with compressed air. Although it didn't look like much from the outside, there was a considerable amount of buildup inside the unit.

I was under the impression that most RAS's were induction motor equipped, including the Craftsman. The one in the diagram does have brushes, though. Woodnthings will chip in on this. He knows a lot about the Craftsman RAS's.

I agree with what most of the guys above say to check. Make sure you have a good electrical supply (no extension cords) and a sharp blade.
