Thank you for your question on the radial arm saw not spinning up to speed.

There are a couple of things that can cause this problem.

First unplug the saw from its power source.

First the start capacitor may have failed. You can remove to motor cover and remove the start capacitor and check or have checked the start capacitor. If you have a volt/ohm meter you can check the capacitor yourself by setting the meter on the lowest ohm scale and with the wires removed from the capacitor put one of the black and red probes from the meter onto the capacitor terminals and watch the meter for a deflection or digital reading and then it should bleed down to nothing. Reverse the meter leads on the terminals and check it again with the same results. If you not reading or bleed down then the capacitor is bad and will need to be replaced.

Second the start switch may also be the problem.

The start switch has a start contact and a run contact. If the switch is full of debris and is not resting on the start contact when starting it will give the symptoms you are relating.

I would suggest removing the blade guard and saw blade.

Then raise the arm to its highest point and loosen the bevel pivot and turn the motor head so the arbor shaft is pointing at the table.

Then locate and remove screws that secure the two plastic half’s of the motor cover.

Then once you have the covers off turn the motor unit back horizontal again.

If the capacitor checks to be okay then I would suggest removing the start switch on the end of the motor. It is a flat switch with two wire leads and a mechanical arm for the centrifugal switch to change for start to run winding contacts.

If you carefully remove this switch from the end bell of the motor make note of where the actuator arm was located so you can return it to the same location.

Carefully open and clean the switch and if it has burned contacts and cleaning will not affect the repair you will need to replace the switch.

I will give you both parts in the links below if you need them.

I hope that the motor windings have not been damaged by trying to run the saw.

I hope this information will help you and please let me know how it turns out.
