the pair of drive belts connecting the motor to the pulley holding the circular saw blade
I found suggestions on-line about how to do this repair and that helped a lot. Another person here tried this before me and gave up but he explained to me that the cast iron frame in which the blade pulley spins has to be separated from the pulley with a mallet. After removing the sheet metal cover on the left, removing the blade, removing the six screws holding the cast iron frame, applying the mallet and exposing the motor drive shaft and pulley (you also have to remove the guard that covers the blade), start with one belt wrapped around the motor drive shaft. With a piece of wood used as a poker, gradually push the belt onto the pulley and the motor drive shaft scooting bit by bit while turning the pulley with a pair of pliers until it\'s all the way over. Then do the same with the second belt, pushing until it\'s flush with the first belt. Then reassemble. Whew.

The backside of the handle stripped, making it impossible to raise or lower the blade without using a wrench. Changing the angle of the blade was also very difficult.
Remove the old handle with a hex key, and attach the new handle, again with the hex key. As simple as that.

We also applied WD-40 to various parts to make raising, lowering, and angling the blade easier.

Question: BT3000 Motor Swap Out

fnolteiii

I purchased my BT3000 in 1992 and if I'm not mistaken, it came with a 13 amp motor. Is there any way of swapping out the 13 amp motor for the 15 amp motor? I've seen the 15 amp motor and it does cut easier than my 13 amp motor. Is it as easy as ordering the 15 amp motor and just dropping it in or is there a bit more to it than that?

Hello fnolteiii,

You do not have to remove the shaft to remove the motor.Thank heavens!
You will have to remove the dust cover part # 12 and the guide holder # 80. When you remove the guide holder the shims will drop out so take notice of their location
Tilt the motor to the 45 degree position which will swing part number 10 and remove the bolt, nuts, and spacers from the top of the shaft. Do the same thing from the bottom of the shaft and you will find that you can raise the motor clear off the shaft. I recommend that you have a number of small containers to hold all the parts that you will remove. I used prescription medication bottles.
The motor housing replacement is the easy part of the job.
I just replaced my motor bracket part # 9 so I know what you have to go through. I replaced my belts while I was at it (a difficult job) and I am just about reassembled. You might consider replacing the shims---they might have been part of the problem. When reinstalling the shims, put a very small dab of light grease to hold them in position while installing. I found it impossible to install without the grease because the shims inevitably fell out during the installation.
It will help to have an extra pair of hands when you reinstall the motor because you will be holding the motor on the shaft and will also have to lower the motor on the shaft by rotating the hand wheel. Hard to do both.
I responded because I too thought I was going to have to remove the shaft--not necessary!
Good luck!!

I love the saw you tune it just right and it will cut so very good, but I have had to and the first one the motor went out within a 2 or 3 weeks, the second one lasted a year and at $300 a pop .

Reply: Bt300 Motor

WJA

Hello arauctionaddict,

Being that the 969214010 motor is a universal motor. Any repair shop would test the 4460008 armature assembly or the 4500008 field assembly to see if they were burnt or shorted, and then they would replace them, just as you could do. If the prices on those parts are a little expensive for you. You could have them rewound, usually at a lower price. Just Google armature rewinding abd see if there is a shop close to you and see if they can give you a quote before they do the rewind.

Tilt/elevating mechanism does not move at all. Have cleaned out all debris from gears and have disassembled the blade adjusting handle, cam, bevel locking lever. Could not get the clamping bolt loose from the handle shaft. I think is supposed to pull off, as it is shown separate from the handle shaft in the lube instructions on page 35 of the owners manual. Have tried WD40, but nothing is moving or turning. Is it supposed to come loose? The handle shaft will not move in or out to allow tilt gears to engage/disengage with the gear rack. Currently stuck in the tilt position, with the blade itself in the the vertical position. Could this be an issue with the clutch mechanism?

Use the standard Ryobi T-nuts and 5/16 x 3/4 bolts in the slot on the SIDE of the rip fence to attach a 3/4 board as long as the rip fence. The board is a 'sacrificial' part to move your work away from the router bit. You will have to notch the board over the router. I also bought some standard t-track from Rockler and added it to the board so I can mount a feather board ABOVE the table to help keep the workpiece from rising.

Just bought a BT3000 and have questions about blades and the blade insert. My saw has a rebuilt arbor and it looks to me like the blade runs closer to one side of the table opening than the other. I have several inserts but none of them fit properly against the blade. What is the correct blade location in the opening?

I tried to use a narrow kerf blade rated for 10,000RPM and found that the washers won't grip it--they require a thicker hub. How do I run thin-kerf blades? Can I change the blade washers or add a shim so they grip my blade? Is there any special need in blade selection?

Hello,

I located a post on this subject that a forum member had posted. I hope this will help you with your belt replacement. By the way there is no special tool to install the drive belts.

After struggling, I found that any kind of heat, water, sunlight and a little stretching with the fingers after can help. But...start the belt halfway on the motor pulley, then (it just wont slip on) start the belt on the upper shaft. Rotate the belt, you may need an extra hand to put pressure on the belt of the motor shaft. While turning the shafts kind of twist the belt till it goes on both shafts. This may take some finger pinching but keep working till the belt engages the grooves. keep turning and twisting the belt. It worked for me. Work it all the way till you only see the last non grooved part of the pulleys. Then go ahead and do the same for the second belt. New belts are very rigid and a little heat and stretching makes it easier. Good luck

Hope this helps,

Hi Larry,

I am not sure of an exact temperature you can heat the belts too. You would not want to use any direct heat source such as a heat gun or a flame, this would certainly cause damage. The best way to heat them is to put them in hot water. Even boiling water would be OK as long as you wear gloves to handle them and take any other appropriate safety measures as you handle the hot belts.

I hope this helps!

Reply: BT3000 Shims

rnugent14

Gordon, did you get an answer on why the motor can't be raised?

If not perhaps this is the answer:

When you reattached the guide holder to the bracket, you may have replaced the setscrews riding against the shims, and made them too tight. Loosen the setscrews just a bit, and see if that doesn't free up your motor slide. There are 4 of them. But CAUTION:

I have not made that adjustment myself, so you might want to check with a real repairman to find out how tight they really need to be set!

Had the same problem. In my case, it turned out to be the shims that the whole motor and blade assembly slides up and down on.

I suspect I'll be replacing them again in a couple years.

There is probably saw dust buildup on the treads of the screws that raise and lower the blade.
Use compressed air to blow off the heavy dust; you should do this often. Then after dusting and at the end of the day, spray with wd40 and work the the blade up and down a few times until everything falls lose. Let it dry overnight. Do this regularly and that saw will last for years or until the motor burns out.

You can either buy new ones or do like I did and buy some shim stock and make tour own. Shim stock you can get from a machine shop. You will need stock that is ten thousands thick.

What is the best way to remove the threaded shaft that raises and lowers the motor/blade for new motor/housing replacement?

You do not have to remove the shaft to remove the motor.Thank heavens!
You will have to remove the dust cover part # 12 and the guide holder # 80. When you remove the guide holder the shims will drop out so take notice of their location
Tilt the motor to the 45 degree position which will swing part number 10 and remove the bolt, nuts, and spacers from the top of the shaft. Do the same thing from the bottom of the shaft and you will find that you can raise the motor clear off the shaft. I recommend that you have a number of small containers to hold all the parts that you will remove. I used prescription medication bottles.
The motor housing replacement is the easy part of the job.
I just replaced my motor bracket part # 9 so I know what you have to go through. I replaced my belts while I was at it (a difficult job) and I am just about reassembled. You might consider replacing the shims---they might have been part of the problem. When reinstalling the shims, put a very small dab of light grease to hold them in position while installing. I found it impossible to install without the grease because the shims inevitably fell out during the installation.
It will help to have an extra pair of hands when you reinstall the motor because you will be holding the motor on the shaft and will also have to lower the motor on the shaft by rotating the handwheel. Hard to do both.
I responded because I too thought I was going to have to remove the shaft--not necessary!
Good luck!!

Gordon,

Thanks for the info about motor replacement. I see from your notes that you replaced the drive belts too.

I am trying to replace my guide belts also. I have disassembled the saw to the point at which I am trying to separate the guide holder from the bracket. I have removed 4 screws and 3 setscrews from the guide holder, and the two pan screws on each side of the bearing. However, the guide holder still will not separate from the bracket. Is there another bolt or screw I must remove?

After letting my bt3000 remain operative for several months, I attempted to cut a 0.5 thick board. Shortly into the cut, the motor remained running but the saw blade never turned even when the board was removed.

I am trying to replace the drive belts on my old Ryobi BT3000. I have purchased the replacement parts - 2 belts purchased together. The new parts themselves have the part numbers O20 424010003 and O16 424010003. Are these the correct part numbers?

Also, I am having trouble separating the guide holder from the motor bracket. Having removed the 4 screws and 4 setscrews from the guide holder, and the two screws on each side of the bearing, it seems the holder should come free of the bracket.

What else do I need to do to disassemble the arbor from the motor bracket so I can fit the belt around the end of the arbor?

Reply: Shims

patrick stewart

You have to remove the left side cover and the remove the blade cover. After this you will remove the blade. Behind the blade there are 4 screws. Loosen all four. If the shim is on the backside you will pull the plate, if the front is where the problem is I would run the blade to its upper level and pull the shim and reinstall a new one. After you bring the blade all the way up, hold the shim and crank it back down to remove. Clean the saw dust from the entire inside of the saw at this time. All gears all corners. It won't hurt to spray the gears with a grease-less spray.

It is very difficult to stretch the belt onto the pulleys so I put the new belt in hot water for a few minutes and it went right on.

Reply: Replace Belt That Drives The Saw...

Tom

I agree with Rod on belt replacement. After struggling, I found that any kind of heat, water, sunlight and a little stretching with the fingers after can help. But...start the belt halfway on the motor pulley, then (it just wont slip on) start the belt on the upper shaft. Rotate the belt, you may need an extra hand to put pressure on the belt of the motor shaft. While turning the shafts kind of twist the belt till it goes on both shafts. This may take some finger pinching but keep working till the belt engages the grooves. keep turning and twisting the belt. It worked for me. Work it all the way till you only see the last non grooved part of the pulleys. Then go ahead and do the same for the second belt. New belts are very rigid and a little heat and stretching makes it easier. Good luck
I recently bought this saw. The motor was dragging, throwing sparks, and sounding as if it was bound up. Taking it apart I see the back bearing is only mounted into the bakelite motor case. The schematic shows a bearing bushing above, yet says it is obsolete. What gives? This is allowing the armature to be pulled off center so that it is dragging on the coil windings. I cannot believe a new motor housing would hold any better for any period of time, and if I cannot justify buying a complete motor for the price listed above.
Can I get replacement brushes for a 13 amp motor.
Do I have to disassemble the saw completely to replace the brushes?
Mark
Reply: REPLACING THE MOTOR BRUSHES

Mark

Hi Bob, There should be no need to take the saw apart. The motor is accessible from the bottom of the saw. One thing you do need to confirm is whether your saw has a 13 or 15amp motor. The 13amp is discontinued and no parts are available for it. The 13 amp was replaced by a 15amp motor upgrade which is supported. The brushes for the 15amp motor are part #4540007 and are available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com. Good luck with your repair! -Mark
The saw has been a good worker for me. My son turned the switch on, went into another room to plug in the extension cord (at a job site) and then took a few minutes to walk back to it.
Apparently a small chunk of wood was wedged in the blade guide and it caused the motor to smoke.

Is it reasonable to replace the motor? Has anyone done this? Right now it's just taking space up until I find a motor for it.

Thanks for any input on this.

Reply: Motor Needs Replaced Or Rewound

I would check the brushes out 1st.
If they are not cracked and at least half the material is still present on them then you know the windings have burnt the insulation off. In which case it will be time for either a new field assembly or a whole new motor. My guess is the insulation has burnt off of the field assembly and you don't need a completely new motor, BUT I am not a specialist or a tech so take that for what ever its worth to you.

I would take the motor to an electrician to get the field and armature tested 1st though to make sure which is bad or that only one of the two is bad.

Ryobi BT3000 Rip Fence. I just replaced a bunch of bad parts on the Rip Fence but I don't know the correct way to adjust the screw on Clamper-B.
The original switch differs from what is shown in the current schematic. The original I have is two large square on and off pushbottons, one red, one black. The schematic shows a black rocker type on/off swich. Is this really the correct replacement switch and does it fit the cutout in the front panel of the saw????

You might want to try rolling the belt onto the pulleys. It's a really tight fit. You will probably have to roll the belt on groove by groove. Just roll the first groove onto the pulleys, and once it's in place, begin to roll on the second and so on. It takes some time but it should work.

Bob, I just put a belt on about a half hour ago and did so by removing the cast frame holding the motor to the body. (6 screws(4 and 2)) Once the large pulley is exposed, wrap the new belt(s) around the MOTOR drive then start the belt on the large pulley and turn it until the belt is in place. I used a small notched stick to move the belts into the appropriate position one grove at a time.
Call me if you have Qs 'cause I've replaced two of these now and have it down to a half hour using a power screwdriver. Oh, as you remove screws, you may want to place them in an egg carton is sequence, so they go back on appropriately.

My BT3000 has lasted for many years and although I have been tempted from time to time by expensive cabinet saws, I could never see enough added value to upgrade. Over the years I have added just about every accessory at one time or another, and they all worked pretty much as advertised. Unless I hit the lottery or a disaster happens, my kids will probably have to make the decision of what to do with it when I die. It isn't glamorous, it isn't expensive, it just works -- what more can I say?

I bought mine used off Craigslist - after adjusting and cleaning my worries were over - I have what is probably the greatest homeowners table saw ever made. This baby has it all, light weight easy to move around my shop, sliding table, a huge plus, easy blade changes, very accurate fence, versatile table router mount ( I have a Ridgid 2900 ) all in a compact unit, I made my own zero clearance plate and fitted a 7 and 1/4" extra thin kerf blade for all my general strait cutting, this blade makes hardly any saw dust and is a knife through butter!
This saw exceeded my expectations by a large margin. Five Big Stars *****

I purchased this saw with the knowledge that I did not have a big footprint in which to work and that the saw incorporated a router table, came on wheels and could be rolled out of the way when not in use. Yes I've replaced the motor, but like I said, not knowing the saw limits, I pushed the saw to do things it was not built for .I ripped solid oak 3" by 3" stock and it did not bode well for the saw motor. Having learned this lesson. The bandsaw is now in use. Since this time I have only replaced the shims, the rip fence, (which I broke by dropping it). The adjustments, once fine tuned have stayed. The main thing I do is make sure the dust port stays clear and that the dust build up under the machine is cleaned. I have had a router installed in the table since I purchased it and it is the handiest tool in the shop. I constantly make sure to wipe down the surface and wax the rip fence guide. I don't think twice about having bought the saw. It has served me well. I am well able to afford a bigger saw but because of the space limits, no other saw replacement can accomplish what this saw does for the space. I won't be getting rid of my saw .

I have had my BT3000 for several years. I purchased it because I have a small shop, and have equiped the saw with wheels.The sliding mitre table has served well for the dozen times I've used it. I check the square on that before using and have never had to adjust it.I also made a Tenoning Jig for the sliding table and find it invaluable for this tedious task.The blade lift does clog with dust but I find if I clean it at the end of each use I have no trouble the next time.I have not used the router mount yet. I am building a router table with cabinet and plan to use the mount on the BT3000 for a second set-up during projects.Sorry to hear so many have had issues with this saw. It is, in my opinion, several steps and a leap up from a basic 10" contractors saw or that stupid 'circular saw' table saw from Sears. And, since I don't have room (yet!) for a full blown cast iron monster, this one does just fine, and then some.

My saw also has proven to be excellant. I'm wondering if some are confused with either a newer model of the 3000 and 3001. Apparently Ryobi downgraded the newer units to maintain price instead of quality. The newer units are not the quality as the older units.

I have limped along with this thing for the past 4 years. My wife bought it as a gift. She meant well as it was WAY better than what I had. So after reading this you can use your imagination as to what I started with.1. The shim at the back of the height adjustment fell out within the first 6 months so that has been a pain. I have to lift the back of the motor while raising the blade. I use the wrench as a lifting device. Fun.2. The pinion gears clog with sawdust so you are constantly screwing with that issue.3. The raise/lower handle keeper (at the keyway) broke about a year ago. so I used a piece of conduit to hold that together. More fun. A crescent wrench works also. Way more fun.4. And now the miter table fell off the guides so I'm out until I get that replaced.5. The dust collection system leaves a lot to be desired. I connect a piece of PVC to the port and connect that to a garbage can. Pretty backwoods but it works (sort of) until you are running thick stock. Then saw dust flies everywhere. The fun continues.6. The 90 degree stop on the mitre table broke at aabout three months.And so it goes. Over all though I have been able to turn out some above average products with this. It is not a high grade saw and I never expected it to be. I never expected it to be such a pain though. It has provided me with a lot of good times and a lot of angry moments.Unfortunately I will continue to limp along with this until I can afford to upgrade. Grizzly, Powermatic, Delta...
