Topic tags/keywords: question delta table saw 220v conversion

Hello too all,

I’m new to this forum but want to jump right in!

After converting my TS to 220v, the motor vibrates, and gets hot. Switched back to 115v and it runs smooth.
Does anyone have any idea what’s going on? I followed the wiring diagram on the motor for 220v.

Old Delta 36-426 contractor saw.

Photos please, 1) wiring diagram 2) wires and terminals. Someone here should be able to help but they will need the photos so they can give you the correct answer.

Did you put in a 220 outlet? Or did you change the motor wiring but not the plug/feeder circuit? If you want 220 it needs to be 220 all the way to the breaker and panel.

What you described is what happens when you run a 220 motor on 110.

110 outlets are NEMA 5 series, 220 outlets are NEMA 6.

In both cases the #’s after the dash (-) are the max amperage.

110 breaker takes a single slot in panel. 220 takes two.

The outlet is a dedicated 220v outlet. It runs my jointer and air compressor properly. I think I may have a bad plug. I will get a new one soon.

My advise is leave it alone & put it on a dedicated 120v circuit.

A ‘bad plug’ is about the most trivial thing to test if you have a meter…
