My 2yr old ryobi ets 1825 has recently decided to give up. When i start the saw the motor runs for a second or so then as the revs increase the 13A plug fuse blows. I split the motor and there are signs of overheat and a blackened field coil. Good old ryobi quoted me £ 230 for a new motor. Im not remotely competent with electrics but does this sound like a motor issue or could it be the capacitor ?. any advice would be a godsend.
