Question: Replacement Capacitors
I can't seem to find replacement capacitors. And if I do, the part numbers don't match the number on the capcitor. There are two different capacitors, so how do I know which is which. Help please!
Reply: Replacement Capacitors
If you have two capacitors in your motor, chances are that one is a start and one is a run capacitor. Since the manufacture does not supply internal motor parts on this model. Your best bet is to take your motor to an electric motor service shop in your area. There they can test your capacitors and replace them if needed.
Question: Wobble In Delta 10 Radial Arm Sa...
I've squared the blade to both the fence and table. However, the blade moves back and forth (heels to left>then heels to right). My dial-indicator shows it to be .015" difference around the circumference of a 10" blade. I tried 3 blades: 2 Freuds and a Forrest Chopmaster, all thick sturdy blades.) I don't think it's a bent shaft as I see no up & down blade movement, only side to side. And I'd figure the blade would move up and down if the shaft were bent. With that I'm wondering what to do. I'm even thinking about honing the face of the arbor where the arbor washer presses against it & doing the same to the arbor washer since the problem is worse with the washer in place.

The switch part number, 1344600 is an updated switch for a number of Delta products and will wire just the same as the older style switch.
Hope this helps,

It may perform the same function but the terminals are located different, there is no color, and labeling is meaningless.
Question: Problem With Delta RS830 Radial ...
I bought a Delta RS830 radial arm saw that had very obviously only been used a few times. Since I am not the original owner there is no valid warranty anymore. When I plug it in to a standard wall outlet it only runs about half speed. There is a small switch under one of the plastic motor covers that will make it either 115v or 230v. It was on 115v. Delta told me to check the start capacitor with an ohm meter. If the needle jumps up and stays up, or if it does nothing at all, then it is bad. If it goes up but goes down slowly, it is good. It checks out to be good. There are no obvious defects, like burned or melted electric components or wires. This saw has been used so little it is so clean you could eat of of it. A new motor is $650. I don't beleive that's the problem. Anyone have some ideas?

The motor also has a set of points or contacts that may be pitted [and stuck together]..and sometimes an ohm reading can be misleading..this is one for a repair shop..they can clean and or readjust the the points..[they should be located behind a plastic shield with 2 screw's holding it together..but I would again recommend a repair shop as this has to be reassembled correctly or it will short out..!
hope this helps...
