Thank you Jacqueline S for your time. However I am very aware of where the nearest Sears is. They will not help me without me having to pay 100$ to even talk to them.

Thank you for your question.

Because you did not provide a model number for this saw I can only give you a general answer. I believe that this saw model series is 113.198XXX

The erratic behavior is common to this saw with bad internal ground connections.

• Remove the face plate on the control and gain access to the connections that plug into the back of the control panel. Check all connections by carefully un-plugging and re-connecting back onto the board. This will in effect scrub the contacts.

• Also check any ground wires connections by loosening the screws and re-tightening the screws to make sure they are making good connection.

• There also could be a wire in the harness that plugs onto the board and goes to the encoder that is partially broken. By moving the wire harnesses around you may find the partially broken wire connection.

• If and when you do find a bad connection, you will have to repair the connection since there are not any parts available for these electronic model saws.

• I will include a general picture of the arm assembly. Key number 13 and 14 are the screw and star washer for the main ground wire. Key number 29 is the encoder for the miter. It will have a wire harness that travels the length of the arm up to the control board.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Hey Sam - wow this is great help. I'll take a look at the harness and get back to you. Do you look at replies or is this kind of a 1 time deal thing? Thanks again.

apologize that I did not get back to you sooner, our system has had a problem with the return comments and they were not coming into our e-mails. There is a screw on the underside arm that secures the front panel on the arm for the control. Remove that screw and slide off the control panel and check the green grounds screws. If your control is getting hot I would conclude that you have a component on the board that has failed or is failing. Disconnect the harness for the control and reconnect onto the board a couple of times to scrub the contacts and this may help the display. I think you control is failing. Also clean or scrub the battery contacts because they will have some corrosion buildup after all these years. If you can send me your specific model number becuase the one above I just gave him a picture of the arm and if may not be the same as yours. Please let me know what you have found, and we can continue our troubleshooting based on that.� Sam A.

Sam, Thanks for your reply. my model number is 133.198611. I have removed the digital controller and will try cleaning all contacts as suggested. I pulled out the older battery (Sears original I suspect) and replaced with new Duracell. the battrey was what got very warm and I pulled it out. I have saw set up and can use as crosscut and rip w/o bevel option, just a shame if this is none functioning, just cannot see spending $100 to have this diagnosed. thought as this appears common there might be a resource for reconditioned or service on this part.

Thank you for your update on the Radial arm saw model 113.198611. It sounds like since the battery got real warm when you put it in, that there is a short on the circuit board. This would require replacement control. However I am sorry to inform you that the replacement control has not been available for many years. There are not many options open to deal with this problem. Some owners now use an after market adjustable square to set for the miter and an adjustable one for the bevel as well. The part number for this control is: 815741 and you might be able to find a used one on line from the old woodworking tools sites. There are people that no some of these parts are no longer available and will go to garage sales and buy up the old tools and part them out and put them on Craig�s list or E-bay. I am sorry that I could not be of more help to you. Sam A.

Thank you for your question on the radial arm saw model. Please look for the model on the left side of the saw frame under the table. That is one of a couple of places the model tag number will be located. You description of this saw fits from the 80s called the New Century series.113.19721/,25/,41/,61, the difference being the style of cabinet or legs You can go on line to Manage My Life .com under manuals to see which style you have. Check the link below. I hope this will help. Sam A.

Q:

Can you tell me the age and if it is worth fixing a Craftsman radial arm saw model 113.198611?

A:

Your saw was sold in the mid 80s. If you have the owner’s manual, it will have a print date on the back cover page. A motor that will not come up to speed could be one of multiple issues. I have provided you with the trouble shooting tips from the manual below. I usually found the motor centrifugal switch or the capacitor had failed. A bad centrifugal switch means the motor will have to be replaced. If you would like the manual here is a link. Manual You can order parts from this link Sear Parts Direct
