So, I take the shop-vac and prop the table saw back off it’s stand (Hitachi work site saw c10fr,) undoing the bolts so I can mount it onto a shop made stand. Blowing with the air compressor and getting sawdust out of nooks and crannies and generally cleaning it up to mount on the stand clean.
After I set it on the stand, NOT bolted down, just starting it up because I’ve heard these things might be sensitive sometimes, and it doesn’t start. I checked the reset button and nothing, no resistance or anything. It’s a sealed fuse box basically, so I can’t just check and change a fuse it that’s the problem. I jumped the two wires going into the reset button/fuse box but nothing, so I’m guessing it’s not that that’s the problem, but something in the motor which was working fine yesterday, you know when it was dirty and filled with sawdust…
UGH! I obviously can’t cut anything, and Hitachi s giving me the runaround telling me they find no proof that I registered the product which I did immediately upon receiving it for a gift. (I wouldn’t buy a Hitachi tablesaw if it was my choice, because it’s way too proprietary as to the miter slot and crappy fence and a few other things. BUT that’s what I was given. It’s not like I can just go out and buy a new saw, and no I don’t need suggestions to go buy another one.
Has anyone ever had any problems like this? is it from tipping the saw to clean it? That doesn’t really make much sense, since it’s made to break down and be pulled along on the wheels which would tilt the motor also.
I thought cleaning the dust from the motor would be a good thing, but it doesn’t seem it is after all.
