See page 26 in operators manual above. The overload protector is part of the on/off switch.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Yes call is added charge. Did you see the manual I linked? If it will not reset, the switch needs to be changed.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok is the switch still available?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

It is listed in the parts list on the last page of the operators manual. You would have to go to Sears site to see if it is available. You can't get it to reset? Do you have a voltmeter to see if switch test good?

that's how I learned to try to restart can I got wire it to see if it's the motor or switch. The motor is more that the saw @ $ 200.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

You have to remove the switch, so you can get to the wires, then plug it in and test.
