Just bought a used 3hp, 230V (Marathon) Unisaw, '97 model in great condition. It ran just fine before I moved it. Unfortunately, the straps broke during the move and it tipped over. It didn't seem to have any significant damage but once I got it home and hooked up, it wouldn't run - not even a hum out of the motor. I checked the power source - all good - 119+ volts on each leg - and the switch and everything seemed good, but still nothing. Finally I hooked the motor up directly to the power source and still nothing. There was quite a lot of dust that blew around during the move so I used compressed air to blow out the parts of the motor I could get to without opening the case. No help. I then decided it must be the run capacitor or worse so I took the saw out of the cabinet so I could work on it more easily. The run capacitor appears to be okay. I checked it by putting my ohmmeter across the terminals to discharge it, then measured DC volts and got a reading that would slowly decrease. From what I've read in the web, that indicates that it's working. Told this story to a guy in a local motor shop and he said to check the continuity of the capacitor wires. I did (although I don't have great faith that I really understand which setting I should use within the continuity section) and it appears there IS NO continuity - by that I mean the meter gives a positive reading, not a zero. What now? Do I have to crack the case to trace the capacitor wires to see if there is, in fact, a loose connection? I can't find my gear puller so getting the pulley off may be a problem. I should probably take it to a pro (and probably will) but the nearest shop is an hour drive each way so I thought I'd see if anyone out there has any other thoughts first. Thanks in advance!!
