This is my first post here. I’m looking for a little help with the Dewalt RAS that has come under my care. It was working fine, then one day it just won’t turn on. I’ve opened up the motor and checked the capacitor for resistance, all good, reset button and Sinpac switch for continuity, all good, and everything seems to be operating normally.
I’ve also checked and there is power going to the machine from the wall, so I have two questions:
1) How do I check to see if the power is actually flowing to the motor inside of the box?
2) Is there anything else I can check before I call in someone to take a look at the motor itself? Would it be worth checking the actual on/off switch at the top of the saw for instance?
Thanks for your help, and let me know if I was vague and you need more information anywhere.
