  • 10" Portable Table Saw R4516 Problem

    Hi

    I have a Ridgid 10" portable saw I lent out. I went to use it now and it doesn't start.

    Is there a reset button on the saw somewhere? I can't see one to save my sole and the manual doesn't indicate there is one.

    If someone knows if this saw has one and can tell me exactly where to find it I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Check the wire connections at the switch and also where the power cord connects to the motor. Better yet, have the person you lent it to take it to an authorized service center and pay to get it running like it did when they borrowed it.

      Thank you for the reply. I have checked the cords and they're fine. It has to be internal in the on/off switch or motor.

      I did phone the guy who borrowed it and his reply was "It worked when I used it ... I don't know what you could have done".

      He's not answering my phone calls or my text. It upsets me bc he's not taking responsibility for it.

      I still have not found a reset button. The saw is just over a year old ... You would think there'd be one some where on it.

        If you registered your saw into the Limited Lifetime Service Agreement when you purchased it a year ago, just take it to a Ridgid Service Center and they will fix it for free. You will need to supply them with you Member Number for the LLSA which you'll find on the card Ridgid mailed you after you registered the saw. It's nice of you to lend out your tools but it's circumstances like this one that cause many people to never lend out their tools.

            I found this link and it discusses a fuse and circuit breaker. How to Troubleshoot a Ridgid 10 Portable Table Saw | eHow.com
            I think there has to be a fuse or circuit reset button of some kind, just don't know where. Please learn from this unfortunate event and don't lend your tools out! There will probably be a somple fix for your table saw and you are better off with this person out of your life. If he could not be bothered to man up and have the saw looked at, he is not worth your time and effort. Good luck. Frank

            Check this out! They talked about the reset being inline before the motor.

            have a Rigid TS2400 (table saw).......all of a sudden it won't run. I've checked reset and outlet....okay.
            Is there an easy spot to see if switch is bad???? Or is there a spot on motor.....to see if power is getting to it?????
            I have a volt meter........but just looking for the best choice(s).
            Thanks.........D

            It's most likely a bad on/off switch, but sometimes those reset switches will go out too. These are some of the most common repairs we see for the TS2400 saws. With an Ohmmeter you can check both switches, and I think you can check the leads with your voltmeter. Here are links to the switches:

              Found the owner's manual for your saw, PDF file, circuit breaker reset and fuse mentioned so it's there!

                someone somewhere hasn't proofread the referenced OM . in the troubleshooting section of the referenced owners manual, for "saw does not start", if the problem is "Cord or switch is damaged", the Solution is "Have the cord or switch replaced at your Sears Service Center." (see page 38).

                      I know the reference to Sears sounds odd, but there's no telling with Ridgid. I know these saws are sold in home depot, and maybe sears? Taking it back to sears for repair didn't sound all that far fetched but you're right it is out of place. What about the location of the fuse and circuit breaker reset? I didn't see anything specific about that? I read a couple blog sites where owners said some of the switches had to be replaced every couple years. Hope the owner gets her saw working soon. Frank

                          that little saw is looking less and less attractive with each posting.

                            No wonder it says "Sears" in the manual... its the EXACT same saw sold at Sears under the Craftsman branding... Craftsman Model# 21828 Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more
