I have purchased the Delta 36-725 and am very disappointed. Poor fitting when assembling, received wrong answers from pre-sales support (both add-ons I purchased from Delta do NOT fit this saw). Tech support post sale was no help.
I am making it work BUT today, it stopped as I had a piece of lumber next to the blade when I turned it on.
Checked circuit breaker etc etc etc. The manual says it has a reset button but I’ll be darned it I can figure out where it is according to the diagram.
Can anyone properly describe where the reset button is? I’m dead in the water until I find it.

Manual sez it’s on the power switch. Should be fairly obvious (they usually don’t hide them!). Make sure you are getting power at the outlet first and then trace it back. Cheap multimeter is you friend.

Not on power switch. The diagram show it on the underside of something (not power switch box)?? Anyone actually have one and can tell me where it is?

LOL – The troubleshooting section says it’s on the switch, but the section on ‘overload protection’ says it’s on the motor like TheFridge suggested…

Looks like you gotta get up under the saw to the motor.

Rick M, I did read his review before and after buying. Helped a lot!
I ended up calling tech support. To find it, do one of 2 things:
1) lie on floor and look up under saw or
2) look thru dust port to see it.
Neither answer looked anything like the manual!!!

The manual says the button is on the motor under the saw. Figure B is pointing underneath the saw. It’s a terrible diagram but they probably assumed that most people could read and find the motor without a picture.

If you still can’t find the motor or button, go to that thread I posted and ask those guys.
