I have a question about the wiring …. I recently purchased Kraft Model TPC 2610C and the switch was removed from the handle by the previous owner. When I got it home … and removed the handle … There were four wires in the handle open … White – Black – Red – Red …
My question is how this was originally wired? ... is there a brake on the motor for this particular saw that has to be energized do to the other set of wires …

Either way I just need help identifying the wires so I can wire this unit back together … Thanks!

Does the motor show an optional 220 volt wiring diagram?

That’s t the problem it doesn’t have a wiring diagram … However I took the motor completely apart last night… Its 120vac has brushes that look good …. I really believe the motor is burned up … I will have to doe some test on the unit to see. There wasn’t any start cap for the motor …

If it’s a brush type motor, there is no start capacitor.

Thanks Brad .. your correct .. brush motors do not have a start cap …
I was answering dhazelton’s answer from a previous post on a different thread.

Seems these saws had different types of motors installed ..

(motor bad) I don’t … I need to megger the windings and check the commutator and wiring to validate the motor is good… However, as a positive .. There was not any smell of burn or dark spots on either…

Just need to do some test to see what the real problem is .. everything else checked out .. The outboard bearing was pretty ruff .. need to replace that – what was odd it didn’t have a shield on the bearing where the other one did … LOL

Scratch scratch scratch …. Don’t know what happened… After disassemble the motor and checked everything out didn’t find any issues, I reassembled the motor ..
Did a bench run … and Wala! it ran! ...
So I went ahead and hooked everything back into place and installed my blade .. Gave it a test run cutting wood and seems everything is normal? ...

Funny how that works .. Only think I can think of is one day I’ll have some big job and the thing will all of the sudden stop working, and I’ll be back to the circular hand saw …

Anyway .. thanks for all the support on getting my unit working… Now all I have to do is replace the board top .. it was kind of wore out..

Have your say...
