The same thing has recently started happening on my 25-30 yr old grizzly table saw, but only when it’s cold in my shop. Usually starts up the 2nd or 3rd time, unless it is really cold, then it won’t start till I warm the motor up with a space heater some. I have had a little luck in fiddling with the centrifugal switch, but it’s no silver bullet. My thought is that either the motor needs to be lubed or that it is somehow on it’s way out. In your case, since it’s new, I don’t know if that would be a possibility.
