SWITCH

Page 3 of 3  


You may recall that in the original post, the problem was the SWITCH, not the motor. So even he he bought the new motor, it wouldn't solve the immediate problem the OP had.

I would bet that the original motor has built-in thermal overload, just as many (if not most) contractor saws have had for many many years.

The motor and overload are in series and see exactly the same current.
BTW, at least 95% of all 3 phase motors are protected by an overload relay that is art of the magnetic motor starter used to control the motor.

Sorry Charlie, you're in the wrong ocean.

But NOT the same temperature. If it were a matter of current, motors wouldn't have Klixons.

Irrelevant. All fractional-horse motors are protected with Klixons, or similar.

Reduced airflow, perhaps???????

An overload relay and thermal protection are two different things - and this is a single phase motor

The switch assembly. Switch, box, cord, and plug and cover.
I am sure some where there is a replacement switch, that will fit in the box.

Not necessarily true either. I didn't look in detail at theat switch's specifications, but I believe it had current-sensing heaters in it matched to the motor size, similar to what a magnetic starter with overload protection uses.

It has nothing whatever really to do with predicting the motor temperature, per se, it's simply overcurrent motor protection (as opposed to overcurrent _circuit_ protection that is the function of the breaker/fuse). Sizing is based on FLA and motor rating of how long is allowed before protection kicks in.
The devices have colloquially been called "heaters" at least in the US (I don't know about the frozen north jargon :) ) as they're just thermal links. Some are resettable bimetal strips (the builtin motor variety for example) whereas typical magnetic starter heaters are fusible links.

That is, yes, the motor ratings are generally based on what the internal insulation and all will stand as temperature overloads but that is protected against by the current draw and manufacturers' ratings with the presumption of proper installation, cooling, maintenance including removal/prevention of dust buildup, etc., etc, etc., ... so that by limiting the current draw within the expected time the internal temperatures will not reach danger levels.
