If I understand ppg s explanation, it s not tripping the breaker at the power source, it s doing a thermal shutdown at the machine. It s frustrating to explain because I run hundreds of feed of board through my DW733 in the Tucson summer heat without a problem.

I said breaker but I meant the thermal breaker built into the machine. It might not be replaceable as it was on my table saw but I’ve found that once you trip it, they sometimes trip more easily. If it is the motor overheating and not overloading as my table saw did, it could be a faulty motor.
