I have a Laguna NLX31 combination machine with table saw, jointer/planer, and shaper.
The table saw motor works great but the jointer and shaper motors are running slowly maybe something like half speed.
I have had the motor and capacitors checked, the 40uF and a 50uF capacitors were within uF tolerance, but I have since replaced with with new. That did not fix the problem. The table saw starts even faster now, but the same problem exists with the other two motors.
I unhooked the belts from the jointer and started the motors a few times and for a little while it would start up at apparent full speed, I shut if off and started it again and its at half speed. That cyclic pattern repeated over 4-5 cycles before turning the motor on would only produce half speed. I checked the speed by running 2” oak over the planner and over a shapper flush cut bit. Both motors are clearly slow and lacking in power. The belts and bearings all seem fine.
All the motors are 3hp CEG brand. There is a main shutoff switch, a table saw and two other push button kill switches, a spring loaded start switch, and a tool (motor) selector switch.
Anyone have a clew to what might still be going on?
