Hello everyone,

Thanks for the suggestions. I took this into a local electric motor shop. They blew out the dust and said that it probably just shorted out because the contacts in the switch had been clogged with sawdust. It lives again! This is great news, becuase I only paid $50 for this little saw, and a new electric motor was going to be at least $150 (I would have been in the market for a new saw with more features instead).
I’m confident that it isn’t going to catch fire again on me….I’m going to build a shelf over the motor to keep some dust off of it, and I’m going to vacuum it out at the end of every day with the shop vac.
