  • TS not starting was because of the effin FUSE

    Thank you to everybody for all your advice.

    Called Atlas Machinery to see who Mike, the owner, uses for motor repairs. But before taking the motor off, I decided to try one more electrical diagnostic.

    Used the same extension cord on a lamp.
    No change.

    Plug the extension cord into the other circuit.
    Voila!
    The lamp comes on!

    Plug another machine into the same circuit as the tablesaw.
    Nothing.

    Change both fuses.

    Great success! (in the words of Borat)

    Thanks for all your help.

    Glad you solved it, I guess we all over looked the obvious cause, no power to the plug. Next time you'll know to check for power first. Happy sawing.

      Thanks Doug.

      It was handy I had a package of fuses on hand. Rather than make any cuts, I went to HD to buy two new packages to have on hand.

      (just noticed the graphic in your post - banging my head against was still more polite than what I was doing when this whole issue started...)

        Ummm no, not quite all, but I didn't get an answer to my question about multi-meter and checking voltages, so I assumed the answer was "no".

          You were surely on the right track but simpler than using a multi meter to trouble shoot, just plug in a light.

              I too thought it was covered by my question, too... I too assumed "no"...

                Ive heard of disconnects, breakers, fuses and cartridge fuses in three phase. Never heard of Effin fuses, is that a type of fuse or is it a brand name.

                  I've heard it called a blown fuse, Effin is new to me too.

                    Effen ???, maybe it is a EFEN product or a name he uses for his breakers

                      Actual fuses that need to be replaced? How old is your house? And for the record, I also suggested it was a fuse.

                          A lot of these machines have a breaker somewhere or something that will short when you ride your machine hot. I know that the medium sized compressor I had I let it run in winter which is a big no no by the way. It shut down and there was a breaker button hidden on the pump body that was really hard to see but was on the parts diagram so I tripped it and man that relieved the stress right away when I heard that thing pumping air again.

                            We have a place down the road here called Effin Jay's smoke shop. It's in a 10 x 10 OSB shed.

                              Redneck Albertan, you’re right - I was looking to communicate the “polite” version of what I was really thinking…

                              Dara, gotta love that smoke shop….

                              Sorry for confusing some of you!
