Hammer K3 Winner won't run - need electrical diagram
« on: March 06, 2022, 05:23 PM »
My saw is 5 years old.  Today I went to turn it on and the blade started to move slightly and than is stopped.  I cycled the emergency shut off button on the side and the safety interconnect switch that is on the sliding metal guard was in the center position.  I checked the outlet for power and it was good.  I pressed and held the "ON/OFF" switch and no luck.  I need to trouble shoot the main switch and the two safety switches but need a wiring diagram to make it worth my while.  if anybody has a diagram, can I get a copy of it.  Any suggestions.  It's Sunday so I can't call Felder.

Startup capacitor(s) gone? There's a bank of them near the switch inside the saw. (Assuming it's single phase)

I removed the metal plate the switch is mounted to and behind the switch, is a box which has the main power cord attached and three power cords running out to various components (Motor, and two safety switches.) Are you suggesting that the bank of capacitors are mounted somewhere inside that box or mounted elsewhere?  The data plate on my saw says PH 1 which maybe means it is single phase.  Thanks for your input

It'll be inside the metal case of the saw itself - big brutes, around the size of a coke can. So not in the plastic switch box.

If you roll the slide all the way back, and slide out the long plate that is underneath/protects the motor and blade, and shine a torch towards the front of the saw (around the area of that switch box), you should see the capacitor. (May be several - I can't remember).

There's also an inspection panel on the opposite end of the saw - near the dust port. If you take that off and shine a torch at the other end I think you should spot it (but wont be able to reach it that way unless you're an orangutan).

Worth checking all those safety switches before you start pulling things apart - they can be a bit finicky, particularly the ones for that sliding plate under the sliding table.

Be careful with those large capacitors. They can store a large charge.

The Capacitors on the Hammer K3 have "bleed-down" resistors that takes "the sting" out of the capacitors
