I have a 10" Craftsman radial arm saw Model 113.197751 that has a dead
AC motor. I was using it with the Shop Vac attached, and ON, and was ready to make my cut thru 1" X 6" cedar. I was wearing eye covering, and ear plugs. What happened was I turned on the saw motor switch, and
I did not hear the problem for 3 seconds, that I had the saw carriage a bit too far out and the saw blade teeth were against the cedar. So the motor was not free to turn. I finally realized it and shut it off.
It did not pop up the red reset button, and the motor was not warm/hot. But it rendered the motor dead. It will not run/start. I've dis-assembled the top to get at the AC switch and I do have AC power to the switch. I do have a Fluke DVM but I don't know what to look for in
ohms with the 2 leads to the motor. My last resort is to remove the motor and take it into a small motor repair shop in town. (N. Ga. Mtns.) Is there a chance I should try to pop=up the red RESET button &
do a reset? Thanks, Amax
