Bosch TS3000 table saw won't run. Help
 
TS3000 is the stand number. The saw is a 4100.

Pretty much that sums it up. Put it away yesterday. Plugged it into a good power source today and... NOTHING. No start. No nothing.

Ideas?

Capacitor?

Some motors have a reset buttom on them. Check out yours.
The other possibility is that the outlet wasn't live. Did you try another oulet?

Power is, as I said confirmed. No reset switch apparent. :(
I contacted Bosch and they helpfully let me know that I could bring the saw into one of their service centers and they would be happy to help me.... Too bad the closest one is 85 miles away.

Fix it
 
Time to bust out the voltage meter!

So I traded ETOH with my neighbor to come over and check out the saw this weekend. He plugged it in and it worked. ARRRGGG!!!! Same plug I used 48 hrs before - that wouldn't work.

Funny part is he's planning on taking credit for a laying-on-of-hands.:laughing:

Leah, our side has to keep working to show how clever WE are.

I have the same saw & it knows who's the Boss.

I thought that only worked South of the Mason-Dixon line.

Ron - :laughing: - get out a map.... I am south of the Mason-Dixon. :laughing:

I'm glad it works now, but I'm curious.....What's an ETOH?

Usually, when I trade work with my friends and neighbors, it's for a NHCSD. (Nice Home Cooked Steak Dinner).

I'm a lousy cook, so I usually come out ahead on these deals.

WOMEN......

Seriously, you probably do have some kind of an issue with your saw. You may have a problem with a loose connection, or a short somewhere. Take a good, long look at your plug and cord, make sure you don't have frayed wires or knicks in it.

ETOH - ethyl alcohol/ethanol/booze - it happened to be vodka punch...

Yeah, yeah, even this poor helpless woman knows that the saw ain't 'fixed' whatever problem that occurred is intermittent and likely to happen again. I bought another one and the first one is going back.

Careful with the gender based insults, I'm liable to take offense when I'm not in such a good mood. Today happens to be the THIRD day in a row that I haven't worked - can't think of the last time that happened.

YIKES, was (I thought pretty obvious) joke, not meant as an insult. was only trying to help by pointing out that there may still be a problem such as a short or bad connection!!

If you found what I did write even the least bit insulting, I am REALLY glad I didn't list my guesses at what ETOH stood for:censored:
