Call Lowes about returning it, but I got a feeling they will say to contact Delta for the warranty. I hope you did register it with Delta for the warranty?

Your saw has a blade brake. Could it be the problem?

Could have a bad capacitor….possibly caused by excess current flow due to the 50’ extension cord. Should be under warranty….if that’s the culprit, it’s an easy fix even if not covered under warranty.

It does have a blade brake. Dagobah, just for curiosity with saw unplugged turn the blade by hand to see if there is a lot of resistance.

Yeah.. that was a bad move to run that saw on a 50’ cord. It could have damaged the motor.

I can spin the blade when unplugged. It doesn’t spin freely, but has some resistance.

Keep in mind the saw never actually ran on the long cord. I plugged it in, wouldn’t start and got another shorter cord. I’d hate to think that damaged the motor. I had no idea.

Just got off the phone with Delta and Lowes. Delta said it sounds like a bad starter capacitor or possibly the motor. They didn’t think the long cord could have done it. Lowes was great, and said they’ll sell me a new one, deliver it for free and pickup the old and do a return at the same time.

I didn’t have an easy way of returning the saw, so this helps a ton.

That sounds like a good solution! It is to be hoped the next saw will be MUCH better.

The use of an improperly sized extension cord will cause the motor to overheat, eventually causing the motor to fail due to the breakdown of insulation. However, it would require a bit of use under that condition to get to that point, so if you just plugged it into one and it didn’t run, I doubt that caused any damage.

It wasn’t said how long the saw was used on the 50’ cord before it would no longer start. Depending on the voltage drop it could damage the motor in short order.

Go back and read response #8 above. But it’s irrelevant at this point, since it’s being replaced under warranty.

???? My initial response was post #6 in response to post #4. So post #8 hadn’t been made at the time of my comment about running the saw on a 50’ cord was a bad move.

UPDATE:

Just got the replacement saw. This one starts immediately and sounds MUCH quieter when running. The original definitely had a starter/motor issue.

I just put together my saw over the weekend and experienced the same issue. I only turned it on to make one cut to make sure it worked but it kept blowing the fuse when I would turn it on. I tried another Chord and it worked. Should i be concerned or Try something else? Maybe different size Chord?

Take a read on my #9 comment. Delta said this was likely a bad motor. Lowes replaced, no questions asked. They even delivered a new one to my door and picked up the old saw for no charge. New model worked fine.

Ok interesting. Well I just ordered a new power chord that meet the Specs. If it continues I will contact Lowes also. Did you have to sign up for a Warranty with DELTA or just use your Lowes Receipt as your proof of purchase?

Delta pointed me back to Lowes. Just need the receipt.
