I very recently bought a Grizzly 1023 RLWX 5 HP left tilt tablesaw..
my ordering experience was terrible
My freight experience was worse
My experience setting the saw up was more awful than the previous steps combined.
BUT after all this struggle i finally got it adjusted and set up to my liking; cuts like a dream.
I cut a bunch of thin strips of some spruce (3/16”W from 11/16” material) and probably about 10-15 minutes in i noticed the saw start to make a loud whining sound. thinking it might be my dust collector for some strange reason I shut that down but the sound persisted. When i shut down my table saw the noise stopped very quickly (2-3 seconds after hitting the off button or less) I took the insert out and looked around.. not really sure what for.. nothing seemed out of place. I removed the blade and checked the dust collection hose that sits below the blade and it was clear. I removed the blade and turned the saw on and no noise.. odd.
the last thing i checked was the motor.. and it was so hot i couldnt hold my hand on it for more than 2 or 3 seconds at a time. After leaving the saw for about 20 minutes it was still just as hot. Even checking it right now an hour and 20 minutes after use it’s still very hot. i would say no discernable difference in temp from before. I put the probe of a meat thermometer on the motor and it read 130 F.
Needless to say after my experience getting the saw here and running properly.. this is kind of the last straw on this thing.. I’m wondering if I got a dud or if I did something wrong.
I’m gonna call them tomorrow and try to get some answers but I figured this isn’t a bad place to look either.
Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.
