Question about Hitachi C10FL 10" Stationary Table Saw 3.0HP

1 Answer

On my fathers c10fl table saw the thermal breaker constantly trips, even under light loads. The saw is only 3 years old and has rarely been used. I have it plugged in directly to a 110/120 volt, 20 amp outlet. I haven't checked the brushes nor have I been succesful in locating them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm right in the middle of a big project and I need to get this problem resolved immediatley. Is there anywhere I can find a schematic of the motor? Thanks.

As a Contractor I always bypassed the on board breaker switch cause i found them to be a pain and always trippin. If you are concerned about burning up the motor i would just install an inline breaker like a GFI outlet. Please give a 4 thumbs up if you have found this free answer helpful. Good Luck and have a Great Day.

Table saw overheats triping braber. have cleaned contacts and tighten the conections on the side of the saw.


Usually a saw that size will have it's own breaker built in, is this the one that is tripping? Or is it the one on the wall? Either way, a dull blade will make the saw work harder, and heat up faster, Mine trips off now and then, always from a dull blade. It has a built in breaker in the switch. Are you running it with a cord? Make sure it is heavy enough, a small cord will steal amperage from the circuit turning a 20 amp breaker into a 15. Hope this helps.

The table saw shutdown where is the restart button


Usually the reset for table saw is on the motor itself
Crawl under the table and check it out & check your motor name plate (use a digital camera to photograph the name plate so you can see it large on your computer and have a record of that information)
Look for oil caps at the bearing ends of motor, to see if your motor can be oiled using 3-in-1 oil

If your saw is shutting down, you may not have enough electricity for the motor
Look at motor name plate for volts amps or watts.
Now figure how much electricity your saw need using the formula Volts x Amps = Watts

Next, look at the circuit breaker and size wire
15Amp breaker = 1440+watts
You can figure the breaker load using V X A = W

Next look at your wire going to table saw
14 gauge wire for 15 amp breaker
12 gauge wire for 20 amp breaker
10 gauge wire for 30 amp breaker

You might benefit by running bigger wire to the saw. And adding some oil in the oil caps.
I oiled my table saw and then ran a dedicated 30Amp wire to it, and it runs real good for a 25-year-old craftsman.

My table saw stops after a minute or two i replaces the capacitor and still does the same the breaker pops out


This means it's drawing high amp. Could be just packed with saw dust, getting hot. The breaker is probably thermal. Clean it up good. If it still trips, check for name plate current on motor and test.

Delta Radial arm saw 33-990 tripping circuit breaker


More than likely motor but try this , if you have a wrap around amp probe or can borrow one or purchase a cheap one place the amp probe around the positive wire connected to panel breaker ,with meter on proper scale ,start saw and read probe current , if cap bad current will be high and stay until breaker trips , if motor will start high on start ,then low then ,very high and breaker will trip , be careful in panel working around live circuits , the reason it reads this way is because as the motor warms the laminates it the armature separate and cause the increase in current to spike ,if cap bad never gets to speed and has high current draw constantly , to verify cap(1) remove from circuit (2)place a screw driver across terminals to release any charge (3), then take ohm meter on ohms place meter leads on terminals one on each terminal at same time meter will rise and fall back(4) reverse leads and should rise and fall as before if it does this it is more than likely good a lot of electrical reasons for this but this will tell you what you wanted to know , good luck
