Reply: Table Saw Guards

Hello 998718,

I haven't seen an adapter from Dewalt to make it easier to remove the guard on the older style saws like they have on the new ones.
Maybe if enough people contact the manufacture they will come up with something, there are a lot of the older saws out there being used.

My armature went bad on this 744 type 3 table saw. I replaced it with the armature and bearings already on the shaft. I also replaced the gear box which has the bearing on it too. It also got new brushes. The saw is not getting up to the required MAX RPM for some reason. Is it possible to hook up the wires from the motor to the switch wrong? If not what might be causing the problem I am having? -Weav

Als there is a slight odor comig from the vent end of the motor. Kind of a wax smell.
Weav
Reply: Table Saw Not Getting To Max RPM

Weav

Looks like the field got to warm when the armature went bad so it is weak. Sears sells a replacement so I ordered one from them and hopefully this will fix my low RPM issue. I'll have roughly 280.00 in the saw in new parts so that is better than 500.00 for a new one. It should be good to go for many more years now. Thanks -Weav

Question: Which Parts For Bad Bearings

1140844

I had a heck of a time getting the blade off my saw, and now the blade doesn't spin in the same plane (we call this run-out I think). It also doesn't sound quite the same and it feels like there is some play in the arbor. I think I may have damaged the bearings with too much elbow grease. I'm not sure, however, exactly which parts (bearings, seals, etc.) I need to replace. It seems like 68 and 69 on the diagram are good candidates, but I'm not sure.

Question: Field

Jonias

does anyone know how to remove the field from the field case
WJA
Reply: Field

WJA

Hello Jonias,

There should be two screws, part number 330019-19 that attach the field to the field case. Once you have them out you can tap on the field case edge with a mallet and the field should start to slide out of the case. In some cases the field has become hot enough to melt the field case. Causing it to become almost welded to the field case. If this has happened you will have to replace the field case also.

Hi'
That is a locking can for your saw's Throat Plate.Its attached to the throat plate and you turn a screw on top of the throat plate and it locks the throat plate down and prevents the throat plate from lifting up while cutting wood.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: DeWalt DW744 Type2

Is it worth repairing this saw again for $250 to replace the armatuer and saw lift mechanism or take the $350 deal on a new one and are the extensions transferable to the new saw? I would imagine it's a refurbished saw they're offering as new at the DeWalt repair shop!
Thanks in advance for your advise!!!
WJA
Reply: DeWalt DW744 Type2

WJA

Hello cntrtr27675,

To me I would probably spend the extra $100.00 for the refurbished saw. As for the extensions I am pretty sure they will fit on the newer saw. To make sure take one off the old saw to see if it lines up with new one. I wish I could give you a better answer on that.
I would also ask them what type of warranty comes with the saw.

Question: DeWalt 744 Type 2

916110

This saw was repaired by DeWalt a few years ago, but I coouldn't justify a $250 repair for a 10 year old saw. It runs but will frequently rattle as if its filled with loose bearings while still spinning and cutting! Freaks the guys out!!! Kinda funny!! Anyway that and the blade height adjustment is stiff and also very hard to turn!! I've lubricated it but that has only made a slight improvement! I've repaired many a tool in my 30 years as a nail banger...wait make that 'master' nail banger now...wow I feel better, thought I'd wasted my life for a minute there!! Anyone out there willing to take a stab at those two issues?
Thanks!!!
Tinkerdave
Reply: DeWalt 744 Type 2

Tinkerdave

Hi cntrt27675,
Most likely the rattle is coming from the armature where the armature fan is loose on the armature.As the armature spins up and down the fan is rattling. Normally if the height adjustment is hard to turn the problem is located in the screw height adjustment binding in the follower nut.Over time dirt ,rust and sawdust builds up in this assembly and in some cases you'll have to remove the assembly and clean and wire brush it to ever get back to being smooth again.
I sorry I can't give you more exact information on the problem but might give you a area to start in. Hope that helps.Good luck.

Hi Tinker,
Thanks for the response! I will take a closer look at the follower nut and cleaning it more than just lubricating it! What am I looking at to repair the rattle? The armature is $92.50 on this site, does that need to be replaced or is it possible the fasten or tighten the fan?
Thanks,

Question: Dewalt Dw744 Tablesaw

station171

can anyone tell me how to get the armature out of the gear case? Is the bearing pressed into the case??
Thanks.
Tinkerdave
Reply: Dewalt Dw744 Tablesaw

Tinkerdave

Hi station171,
The armature is not pressed into the gear housing. The armature is held in by a I.D. o-ring inside the gear case.This o-ring does two things .One it prevents gear grease from leaking into the motor housing and two it acts as a dampener.The armature can at times be difficult to remove.The best way is to take a rag and protect the armature with it. grasp the armature and while pulling make small circular motion and this will free the grip of o-ring from the bearing and allow you to pull it free. When reassembling you should replace the o-ring and lightly coat it with grease. Hope this helps.Good luck.

Question: Dw744 Motor Assembly

Hi All,
The bearing on my motor went and melted the back of the field case and sleeve. I have now replaced all but can't seem to make the bearing and sleeve fit into the circular hole at the back of the field casing. I presume it should fit within it and not just butt up to it.
I have checked that all the parts are correct but the bearing is too big for the gap.
Any ideas? Many Thanks

Adriano,
I can't find your model but the parts numbers you have match Dw744 type 2.It seems to me Dewalt made a field service upgraded.That is that if you replaced the armature they sent you the armature,bearings and a new housing.They went with a smaller rear armature bearing.I think what happened is that you have the new housing and your trying to put it on the old armature.the best thing is to call your Dewalt authorized service center and explain what happened and see if they can tell you what to do.Sorry i couldn't be more helpful but they don't give us service info on the UK saws.good luck.

Hi gawlik729;

Without seeing the saw my guess would be you spun an armature bearing.once the bearing locks up it will try to spin in the plastic housing and some times causes smoking.Then as the motor is lock up it will throw the breaker. Can you rotate the saw blade smoothly?

Question: Dewalt Table Saw Motor

Was using my saw, motor quit replace worn brushes still would not start, have power to switch and thru?
WJA
Reply: Dewalt Table Saw Motor

WJA

Hello rhill,

I am guessing that your saw is either a DW744 or DW745. If you have continuity from the cord plug to the motor. Pull the brushes again and inspect the armature to make sure the commutator is not discolored or any of the bars are missing or raised higher than the others. Also check the brush holders, make sure there isn't any debris in them not letting the brushes make contact with the armature. You can also inspect the field connections to the motor cable.

Good luck,
WJA

First, check your blade to see if it's bent. Try another blade, then check your bearing by unplugging your saw and take off the blade and try to pull up and down on the shaft. If it moves it's the bearing, not a hard fix. Good luck

do not use a piece of wood. your saw came with 2 wrenches. unplug your saw. stand in front of the saw (side with switch and adjustments). Raise blade to top. Remove tung (yellow insert). slip open wrench on the shaft then place box wrench on the nut and pull toward you. This would be counter clockwise.

I not sure how old your saw is but it sounds like your gear reduction is whats causing the problem.Under normal conditions the armature gear which is cut into the armature shaft and the arbor gear should be replaced as a set.If they are not replaced as a set you take the risk if having one worn gear and one new gear riding on each other and causing a whining sound. I'm curious as to why you replaced the armature and field when the bearing was bad.Where they damaged?

The part number is # 153476-04.That's assuming That's the problem. Normally we would put the saw on what's called a "Short Stop" and check its amp draw to see if there might be something binding but you said that you double checked how it was reassembled so that would be my guess as to the problem.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Thanks for the info i hope this fixes it the part isnt cheap its 78.00 i believe but i feel the saw is worth fixing .Getting back to your comment on the short stop what exactly is that and what symptoms would i look for if it was something else besides this gear.After i put this part in the motor will be virtually new except the field.I replaced the plug also and it plugs in both ways instead of having one large prong they r equal does that matter and are the brushes suppose to touch the armature when the are put in ??

Reply: Help With Dewalt Table Saw Dw744...

The short stop does a couple of things. It tests products for short circuits, continuity of the ground wire, hi-pot, leakage current and current draw.As a rule of thumb AC motors should draw about 1/2 their amp rating when free spinning and a little more if they have a gear reduction.

My Tablesaw stopped working recently. Before it died, it would quit working mid cut, but would start working again if I wiggled the wires under the table. Specifically the wire leading from the switch housing to what I think might be the transformer, mounted above the switch directly to the underside of the table. Any ideas on how to fix this?

My saw shuts off after sawing and will not start again for a time. It is taking longer to restart from a few minutes to the next day. I would guess this to be the thermal protection but I do not see this listed on the parts list? Any help would be great. Thanks
Hi,
The armature definitely went bad on this table saw. The trick question is how do you remove the armature from the field? It looks like I am going to have to buy both. The field seems to have one "lump" on each end which prevent it from being slid out. Wonder how they assembled it in the first place?

Hi David, What do you mean by "lump" at both ends of the motor field -- There is a cap on the blade end of the motor that comes off and at the other end (where the brushes are) the cap comes off and pull the brushes up from the armature and the armature should pull out.. Frank

Hi David, The pic shows the end with the brushes - so the other end has the cooling fan on the armature - right.... The armature will not come out for the other end because of the field plates either !! The armature does not touch the field plates when it is running-- if it is stuck against the field plates now ... it has been overheated at some time or other. Why do you think the armature is bad !! Frank:cool:

Frank,
The motor makes a racket when it is running. The bearings are tight and rotate smoothly. The commutator sparks like crazy and some of them are warped and burnt.

I have seen this several times. your field has gotten hot and the plastic bubbled out. you will have to force the armature out. then check your field with an ohm meter. each coil should have the same ohms. That will tell you if they got to hot and shorted somewhere in the coil.

Hi David, It's me again..... I just found out that there has been a recall on these saws with the year 2007 in the serial no.---- I think from 30-50. You might want to check... Frank

To Dale,

Sorry for the delay. The ohm reading across both the top and bottom field coils are zero. My meter is not very precise. Any idea what the resistance should be?

To Frank,

Sorry for the delay. The text on both the front and back plates are in good condition. Where did they put the serial number?

Thanks,
David

Hi, I was using dado blades on my table saw and accidently stripped the threads on the bolt and arbor nut that holds the blade(s) on. I ordered a replacement arbor nut, hoping that I will be able to get past the bad threads on the bolt. If this doesn't work, will I have to order the entire Armature and Bearings (part 66)? If I send the saw in to a repair shop, how much should I expect to pay for the repair. Is this a repair that I could do on my own? How difficult is it?

Question: Dewalt Table Saw Motor

I have a Dewalt table saw mod DW744 The motor stopped when I was cutting.Pushed the reset button and still not work. I tested it out and Im getting power to the motor. What does the the box do that is mounted to the bottom of the table? Is that a transformer? Im thinking its something in the motor. Since I have power to it. Any help would be great. Thanks

Hi Dirty, you said that you had power to the motor ..... Have you checked the fields? I have one that the fields burnt up in.... ya a bad batch of table saw motors !!!
Previous owner replaced the armature, field and brushes in the motor in this Dewalt 744 Portable Saw but it would not work.

I have voltage all the way to the brushes.
I disassembled and found nothing unusual.
I tested the armature and field and both are not shorted or open.
My next focus is the field orientation.

It appears the field can be installed-"either end first".
Is there one correct orientation to install the field?

What else can I check before reassembly?

Thank You for your help and comments.

Well the mystery is solved and the motor runs.
Going back together, I had voltage up to the point of clipping in the Brush Housing.

Peeking inside, one of the mail spades on one of the Brush Housing did not go into the female fitting, but rather "slipped off" to the side without making contact even though the Housing clipped fully into place.

When I pulled out the brush housing the spade "sprang back" and you could not tell by inspection that it was bent. Probably happened when they installed the new Brush Housings and I repeated it during my first reassembly.

Thanks to all who looked at the post with the thought of offering help or learning something. I learned some valuable lessons about Root Causes.........School is now out of session! Back to the To Do List.

This is a great site, I'll be back.

I am kind of in the same situation but for a DW744 type 3 but don't think I need a whole motor. I opened up the motor housing and noticed one of the brush holdings was burnt. If I replace this, is there a good chance my motor will start working again?

The table saw is in a remote area with very limited capapbility to do repair work. To repalce the entire motor would probably be easiest

[QUOTE=Dalco;1214]I need a new motor for a DW744X table saw. Can anybody tell me where and how to get a replacement motor?
Thanks"

Unfortunately there's no complete motor assembly available for the DW744X. The motor components have to be purchased individually. The main motor pieces are the armature, field, and brushes. It's nice because you can just order the burned out components, but if you want to be safe you can order all three.

To second what Terry P said, why do you suspect a bad motor? Did it make a burning smell during operation?

[QUOTE=Wager;1214]I opened up the motor housing and noticed one of the brush holdings was burnt. If I replace this, is there a good chance my motor will start working again?"

Possibly. Is that the only damaged piece in the saw? You might want to order a set of brushes along with the holder. If the brush holder burned then there's a very good chance that the brushes are bad too.

Its the only damaged piece I can see. The brushes did look pretty worn down so I was planning on replacing the brush holder and both brushes and seeing if that did the trick.

Dalco - sorry for the slight thread hijack.

That's definitely the most inexpensive way to check for other motor problems. If the brushes and new holder work out, you're good. If not, then there you'll probably have to start searching for larger problems.
My 4 year old table saw wich I use often the motor started to make like a squealing noise at start-up for awhile and all of a sudden yesterday it starts up but with very little power I can't even cut anything and it smells like something is burning so I thought the brushes are gone but after I checked them they look fine with not so much wear what do you guys think it is bad motor?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey elche,
chances are the rear or commutator end bearing has seized causing the initial noise..the burning may be the hsg starting to melt around the bearing..ugh..You will need to address this as soon as possible..remove the rear motor hsg and inspect..if not too much damage you may be able to just replace the bearing and rubber boot or sleeve..worst case is replacement of the housing and a shorted or damaged armature..
you may also want to replace the front bearing..this may also be for the service center to perform..hope this is helpful..

Thanks Craig, it is the bearing at the back of the motor don't see any signs of anything melted so I will replace both bearings don't want to take any chances on the other one going bad just another dumb question, how do I remove the bearings?
Thanks again.

Hey,
The best way is to pull the bearings is with a OTC #1020 puller [brand]..you may be able to find one or something compatible at your friendly auto store..last resort is stopping into a local repair shop and having them pull it for you..no matter what you do be careful not to damage the armature or fan...[ there are other clever ways to remove but you real;ly have to be careful..]
take care..!

nope,
just do a google search for a otc puller and you should have a few links come up..they range from about $28.00 to $48.00..but just check out what it looks like and you can probably get something close at an auto or hardware store..[hopefully around half the cost!]..
if you do have a local repair shop nearby it might be best just to have them pull them off..heck.. they might not even charge you..! hee..hee

Question: Dw744 Issue

rayven9

I have a dw744 type 1 table saw that the rail will not lock down on. How do I fix this?
I had an older 744 that was stolen off my job site, that I would rate as a 5. I replaced it with a 744x or something like that, that I would rate no higher than a 2. The newer version is no where near the old saw I had stolen. The new one is weaker by far. My employees have cursed it ever since I purchased it. I have had to replace parts on it three different times. It's out for warranty work at present because it just quit running for no reason. I was tired of spending my own time working on it,and hope they will just replace it. I have found that none of their later tools are holding up like their older tools did. I have sanders, air guns, drills, miter saws, batteries, recip-saws, among other DeWalt tools and none of their later models are as good as their older models. 90% of my work is building log cabins and I need tough tools for a tough job.

It seems to me the motor for this saw is to light it just will not perform. What can I do? I like the saw features and would there be a upgrade for the motor replacement? When the saw worked it does the job.
