I did not know for sure where to place this, so hope this will work.

I have an older 10” Sears Craftsman and Model 113-197750, Serial # 7290-P0061 that seems to have developed a problem. The red reset button does not seem to reset the saw. The blade powered out will I was ripping. I made sure that the saw is getting power, it acts like there is not power to the saw, not quite sure what to do.

Does the saw have some other reset or something.

Thanks for any help given

Could be a blown capacitor on the electric motor? I had that happen to my old Craftsman saw. Cost me around $20 to get another one shipped from Sears.

Check the motor brushes as they may be worn out also blow out the motor and saw switch as you may have a build up of sawdust in the both places.

Thanks Michael for the tip. I have it up and running! Spent the rest weekend making a new cutting table and bench for the garage.

Thanks again.
