It was running fine this morning when I started running some boards though. The motor started to sound like it was straining. I noticed that when I looked down the throat I could see the flashing of sparks, which I never noticed before, then a bit of burning saw dust fall to the floor
I shut the saw off to let it cool down. About an hour later I turned it on again, now, with even more sparking I cut a board, shut it off, and not I can not get it to turn on at all. When I spin the blade by hand it does not turn smoothly, there is uneven resistance and there is a whining sound. This makes me suspect the bearings are shot, but that doesn’t explain why it won’t turn on all of the sudden.
I would really appreciate any advice you can give.
