Hi, I'mMike G and I'll be assisting you. The model number you gave comes up as a fractional fan motor. Please check the nameplate. I also need the manufacturer name. Is there a wiring diagram on the motor?

I meant dissassembling the table saw. Which I really don't want to dothe
Electrician: Mike G., Master Electrician replied 2 years ago

Am I correct, is this a motorized table saw? If so, Sears would be the source for a switch replacement. Let me know and I'll check it out.

I am replacing the original switch with a large paddle switch that is safer
Electrician: Mike G., Master Electrician replied 2 years ago

I'll keep looking for the wiring info, but don"t know that I can give you an answer. The model number didn't allow for any info. If I can find an original switch, I may be able to tell you how to wire your switch. I"ll get back to you when I have something.
