Are you sure the saw is wired correctly for 220? The Grizzly info states the saw comes pre-wired for 220V. I would double check the wiring. Also, is there a magnetic starter on the machine? Is the circuit a GFCI? Do you have access to a clamp on meter to see how many amps the saw is pulling at start up?

The “breaker” at the tool is a magnetic starter. If the machine is wired for 110V is will have heaters installed to protect it for 110, not 220V. The draw at 110V is 16amps, 8amps at 220. If you re-wired to 220 and did not change the heaters the mag starter will not trip out until it senses an overload exceeding 16 amps.
