Hi Guys,

I just purchased a new Grizzly planer model #G58OZ.

We connected the Planer and it ran well . However after planing 3 pieces of wood it cut off and would not restart. We checked and there is proper power to the planer. Is there some kind of trip switch?

Your urgent response will be apperciated.

Could be a motor thermal overload. The magnet starter switch also may have thermal overload protection. According to Grizzly’s site, the G5850Z model has magnetic starter thermal protection. Maybe the manual tells you how to reset it. My guess is to firmly press the Off button to reset.

I tried tried the off button with no luck. The manual gives no info on resetting. It is weekend and I cannot get on to grizzly Tech support. Any other ideas?

I’ve heard Grizzly customer service is good. Call them and see what they say.

Looks like the G5850Z has 2 motors. Do both fail to run?

According to the wiring diagram in the manual, their is a reset control. It also looks like you have to “turn” it to make it work. Can’t be sure but it looks like you have to turn the Off switch clockwise??

You are right. There are 2 motors. Neither is working. I checked the fuse and it is good.

it uses some kind of Riken actuator for each. I open up the control panel and each actuator has a manual overide switch. If I press the press the overide switch for each motor, the motor runs while the switch is pressed and stops when released. However the motors don’t work from the outside switches.

What do you think?

Did you try turning the OFF switch clockwise?

Or pushing the OFF switch in and turning clockwise?

You need to turn the switch clockwise for it to come “up” form the off position to the on position. I tried that several times.

The manual over ride tells you it’s not the motor thermal overload, at least.

I’d unplug it and check the connections on terminal 13NO on both the thermal switches. Don’t think that’s it but I’m not electrician so I’m just guessing here.

Edit you might check the same on both terminals 14NO

Just thought of something else, the 2 amp fuse, did you actually measure it for continuity or just visually look at it? a fuse can look good but not have continuity.

All connections seem fine. Remember it is a new planer.You can get the manual at http://cdn3.grizzly.com/manuals/g5850z_m.pdf . There is a wiring diagram in there if it’s any help.

I’ve been looking at that diagram. Connections on 13NO and 14NO are the ones that electrically pull in the magnetic starter contacts. That’s why I wondered if one might have vibrated loose.

When you press the ON button, does the power light come on?

No. Power light is not lighting when switch is pressed

I checked for voltage on both sides of the fuse and its there.

If the power bulb is blown…do you think it can be the problem?
