  • Tp1300

    Has anyone had problems with the motor going out on their TP1300. When I first got mine the motor went out right after 2 small projects. Had it warranty repaired. Used it for a trial run and it was OK. Now that it has not been used in awhile and now I did some small pine cuts for drawer sides the motor went out again. I'm 100 miles from a service center so took it to HD to be sent in AGAIN. And I'm not taking heavy cuts either. So now my project will sit for two to three weeks. Any help will be appreciated before I make a very expensive anchor out of it.

    What did they do to repair it, did they repair your motor or did they replace the motor with a new one? If they repaired your motor the first time they apparently didn't fix the problem. I would request a new motor. My TP1300 has run fine with no motor issues!

      Mine is only 9 years old, so I haven't had any problems yet. Did they tell you what they found the first time? was it actually the motor that went out, or something else. If it was the motor both times I would be looking at the power source. Low or high voltage can and will damage a motor.

        It's definately not the power source. I have a dedicated 70 amp service to the workshop. My brother in law took it to Milwaukee the last time to be repaired for me and I don't know what they did to repair it.

          You would need to have someone record the voltage over a period of time while in use to know if it is dropping or spiking. Service size makes no difference. Could have a loose connection in the circuit that would cause such problems. The small universal motors are much more sensitive to power problems. There are a million of these planers out there now and motor problems are extremely rare, You have had 2 go out. Look for the cause in your system.
