If the motor is a 115/230 volt motor and is running on 115 volts but the wiring is configured for 230 volt operation, the motor will be weak.

Do you know the specs. on motor of craftsman 10"tablesaw model 315228410


Is there a nameplate on the old motor? If so, it should state the HP, speed and direction of the original motor. If not, a 1/2 HP to 1 HP 1750 RPM motor with the same size shaft that will turn the blade the same as the original should work fine. From the online manual, it appears to have an internal start switch, so the wiring should be standard.

Door only opens 6in


There should be 2 or 3 knobs/screws on the side to adjust torque to lift and to let down the door. Sounds like you need to increase the lift torque setting. If its maxed you can try greasing the rollers/wheels to help remove the drag. If still does not lift it then you may need a bigger motor (1hp) or you can add some springs to help lift it. Check your sensors too. Make sure they aren't being tripped at 6" up.

Where can i find a new motor for a protech 4106 table saw


If you still have the old motor, use the info off of the motor label that describes the mounting configuration (this is the frame type). Do a google search for "Electric Motor NEMA Frame Sizes" for a good list of them. If your label is unreadable (or missing) search for the owners manual for your tablesaw - they usually have the specific motor model number.

The motor frame type is all you really need for making sure it will fit your saw - however, if the old motor was a 1 hp, and you install a 5 hp - you may have problems with the size of the motor hitting the table saw.

Also, decide if you want 110 or 220 volts. In general 220 is more effecient (3 phase is much more effecient). But I bet you'll want to stick with the original horsepower and voltage.

Then, do a google search for your motor. The frame for my motor is J56HC, it's a 3 hp and I use 220 volts - so my search is usually just "electric motor frame J56HC", but if I find too much garbage, then I search "electric motor frame J56HC 220 volts 3 hp". Once you find a motor model number (the motor I liked was a leeson 115048) then search for that. I found a great deal on ebay searching for this.

Fan and fan guard needed for 3 hp motor. Have serial number for motor on a 12 inch craftsman tablesaw.


I'm assuming your saw is a model 351.228040 or a 351.228020. Manual is here.
See page 18, Figure 7 for the Blade drive exploded diagram.
Sears doesn't appear to have a part number for the fan and fan guard.

It looks like you can replace the entire motor and key for $217.55 (as of 6/13/2010) which isn't too bad for a 3 HP motor. Part number is 15094.00 and clicking it will link you to their parts site.

If this answer was useful, please give it a thumbs up. Thanks!

I want to re wire an electric motor for low volt


Look on the name plate. If it says under 'volts' 120/240 that means it's dual voltage and you can use either voltage to run.

I have a Craftsman table saw with a burned out motor. The motor model number is RM871. Where can I find one for less that the $130.00 that Sears wants for the motor. That's the price of the saw.


SOUNDS LIKE THE PROBLEM I HAD, BUT WAS JUST A SEIZED-UP BEARING. I WENT TO LOCAL ELECTRIC MOTOR REPAIR ($15.74) PARTS AND LABOR, THEY REPLACED THE BEARING, THERE ARE 2 BEARINGS ON IT, COST IS THE SAME FOR EACH. THE BEARING IS PRESSED ON, SO REPLACEABLE. HOPE THIS HELPED
