Thank you for your question.


I am sorry you are having a problem with the motor on your Craftsman radial arm saw model 113.19771. If the motor stopped working when you were using it I suspect the problem is the thermal protector. If it will not reset it has to be replaced. To prove the protector is defective you can bypass it. Most protectors have two wires. To bypass these you just disconnect the protector and tape the two wires together. Then check the operation. If the unit works, the protector needs to be replaced. Do not leave the protector bypassed. Doing so could result in the unit overheating and catching on fire. I looked up the protector and found it is no longer available. You may be able to find a protector from a local motor repair shop. Sometimes they keep them laying around.



I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.




Thank you for using Manage my life.

it is an older ( 1980 ish ) 10" craftsman radial arm saw model # 113.19771, i was cutting a 4x4 and bound up the blade, i quickly shut it off but could not restart it - pushed the reset button but could not get the motor to start, checked and i do have power at the plug, can i by-pass the reset button - what wires do i connect together? i have never had ANY trouble with this saw or reset button, this is the first spot of trouble!
