I have a VERY lightly used Delta 8 inch band saw that suddenly stopped
working yesterday. Flip the power switch nothing happens. I have a pipper,
and I can detect ac getting to the motor, but no action at all. Is this a
common thing? This thing really hasn't been used much, but did spend some
time in a damp basement.
It is a single phase 1/5 hp motor.
I really like this saw, but have only used it about 12 times in several
years (while my shop was being rebuilt). Now I really want to use it, and
it is dead. I don't dare try to start it by moving the blade. The
capacitor (I don't have a way to measure it) looks brand new. The whole
thing is practically brand-new.
