What you described was exactly what my table saw did, which is a cabinet saw, so the motor is enclosed. By your photos you have a contractor saw, so the saw dust would not be near the issue. Had to spin the blade to get the saw to work, not the safest thing to do, for sure.
As I said I just blew the fine dust out of the switch area and sealed up some small holes in the motor casing, and have had no more problems. Not turning on my DC for every cut was most of my issue.
I really do not know that much about centrifugal switches, if you do use a lubricate make sure it`s what call a “dry” one, any oil on it will hold the dust.
I live where it`s winter for 5 months, and my 3hp dust collector is in the cold all the time and works in any temp
I ask it to. The cold will slow things down some but that is usually over in less than a minute.

There are people here that can help you with your switch issue far better than I can, I just luck out with my problem, sure someone will be along with more help.

I’m going to have to try to see if I can’t blow some of the dust out I mean it doesn’t look like there’s much in there and I’ve been going insane trying to figure out what’s happening with this saw. I came across a page on Facebook where people were warning other people against buying this because they all seem to be having a similar issue. Delta has apparently also acknowledged that in the 36 725 and 36 725 t2 they know they put out some bad motors.

In that link you’ll see something I found which I’m starting to believe might be my problem, if you look at my pictures and his pictures the coloration of those pads even though I don’t have mine removed look very similar so I have a feeling if I take it off and look at them the friction pads are more than likely burnt.

I just got off the phone with Delta trying to ask to be escalated to a manager because I read a few people who had to go through about five managers to finally get a motor replacement, they told me I have to take my entire table saw over an hour away and they don’t know how long I would lose it for. I have to wait for that guy to report back to Delta and then Delta to get back to me.

The guy in that Facebook post I did send a message to and I’m hoping that he gets back to me and has found some type of better set up or solution for these friction pads if that’s what is causing my issue because if it’s a simple upgrade I’ll do it myself won’t have to lose my table saw and hopefully that solves my issue. Every time I break that saw blade free whether it’s pulling on the blade or twisting that plastic housing that click is coming right from that plastic housing.
