Question and Answers

Q:

new radial arm motor suddenly smokes, spews oil, dies

A:

Thank you for your question on the radial arm saw motor problem.

Low voltage could certainly cause a problem with the motor. Causing it to heat up and fail.

Make sure you are not using a GFIC circuit for supplying power to the saw. If you are that could definitely be the source of the problem.

They recommend that the saw be plug into a dedicated circuit just for the saw. If it has to share voltage with another appliance then it is possible that could be the problem.

The last thing is that maybe the motor was just bad out of the box. But usually they do not act like this if they are bad. As the saw heats up the thermal protector will shut the motor off until it cools and reset or until you push the reset button.

The grinding noise concerns me. Do you think that the braking system may be causing drag on the motor?

I would suggest checking the brake system.

Please let me know what you find out.

Thank you for the update on the radial arm saw. The bearings in the saw permanently lubricated but as they heat up that vertical position some of the lubricant may have come out. You are right it should not make any difference what direction the motor is in. You are also right in thinking the overload protector should have shut the motor off. As I think about what you are saying I wonder if the oil coming out of the bearing ran into the start switch and got between the contact and cause the slow down and odor. Sam A.
