Q:

Motor Start Problem Model 113.213131 113213131 Craftsman 13

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your drill press and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 113213131 and from your description I would suspect that the motor is failing but since the machine has been sitting I recommend making sure that all moving parts the motor spins are turning freely and not binding the motor. If the motor cannot spin the pulleys freely it will just hum and not turn the parts that should be turning. I believe since the machine went sometime without being used it may just need to be greased. If this does not help then you may need to replace the motor. I have included a link to our Parts Direct page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.

Sherman, How do I grease the motor? Replacing the motor at $307 will not be an option since this is my second drill press and is not critical to what I do, it is just a nice to have thing. Frank

Hello Gayle,

I'm sorry to hear that the chuck fell off the spindle on your drill press. I have attached the instructions for mounting the chuck onto your drill press at the end of this reply.

Your drill press uses a tapered spindle that has a chuck that matches the taper. It is a very accurately machined taper on both parts and is designed to self tighten with use. Excessive vibration or lateral contact of the chuck can cause it to loosen and eventually fall off. However, this rarely occurs and if it is frequently happening inspect the spindle and chuck for debris and damage.

Here is a link to a similar model's manual.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance,

Jerry C

A:

The pulley just sits on the shaft. It is a tight fit though to it can take a bit to get it release. A 3claw puller works best to get the pulley off of the shaft in most cases. You can take the nut off the shaft end and then spray some penetrating oil on the top so it can seep down to help release it, but you'll almost certainly have to use a puller to get it off the shaft.

When you put the pulley back in place make sure the shaft is clean and rust free. Then set it down onto the shaft and use a hammer and wooden block to tap the pulley all the way and into place.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
