I just inherited a Delta 50-850 dust collector but it’s missing the starter switch and some electrical parts. I’ve been looking at the part diagram but haven’t figured out fully what’s missing. If anyone has the same dust collector and willing to post some pictures, it would be greatly appreciated.

The previous owner also mentioned that the dust collector’s breaker kept tripping, possibly a faulty capacitor. I saw that there’re suppose to be two capacitors on the part list but couldn’t figure out where’s the other capacitor is installed. Again, any help is appreciated.

I saw the wiring diagram on the part list drawing, but it was vague. It didn’t mention the capacitors.

Hey Mickey, have you figured it out yet? I have a 50-850 (inherited as well) that i have never gotten to run correctly. It trips the breaker after about 6 seconds of operation. well ill put up a few pictures that might be helpful to you nevertheless. Also, it has a couple of wires that connect to what i believe should be a 30 uF capacitor. Mine did not have that capacitor. As you can see in the picture i have huge capacitor that theoretically should work… And it may. But the motor still trips the breaker. Hope this helps. Let me know if you get it running.

Russtang, thanks for the pictures. I took mine to the local delta repair shop and they said the circuit breaker is bad. He said when this happens, it’s usually the breaker, the capacitor or the motor. I’m lucky it’s the cheaper part that’s gone bad. But because I’m also missing a few other parts, (on/off switch, cover plate, screws) they want $250 to fix. I looked on ereplacementparts.com and the parts come out to be around $100. The on/off switch alone is $65 (why so expensive). I’m curious if I can use a regular light on/off switch. Would that work? Anyone tried this?

I have an opportunity to pick up the Delta 50-760 for $200 this weekend. I might end up getting that and salvage the 50-850 for parts or give it to someone else.

No problem. I am currently using a light switch on my bandsaw. It is a heavy duty switch (30AMP I think), and rated for up to a 2 hp motor (or so it says on the back). I bought it from Lowes or HD about a year ago. Im sure it isn’t the safest thing in the world… but hey it works. I was actually going to say…I see decent dust collectors on Craigslist in the $100- $200 dollar range all the time.

Grizzly sells their switches at very decent price. Compare to $60, it’s a steal. I might look into this.

i would humbly suggest that, whatever switch is chosen for the 50-850, be sure that it is a dual voltage switch. the 50-850 may be operated on 110v or 220v. it would probably be unwise to use a 110v switch which would, in all likelihood, not function properly if the motor were configured for 220v.

-- there's a solution to every problem.......you just have to be willing to find it.

That’s a good tip about the dual voltage switch. Thanks. Looking at the wiring diagram, isn’t the voltage configuration based on the wiring,not the motor?

Did you get your dust collector running?

Yes. I ended up buying an on/off switch and a circuit breaker switch from grizzly instead of original parts from delta. Much cheaper. It now runs great.

Have your say...
