Distinterior":1jkg5mc0 said:Myford Man,.....If the previous owner of the saw decided to remove the Capacitor and wire up the motor without one, would the motor run at all or would it just display the symptoms that are being described by Matthew....? Just curious!
A few single phase motors don't use a capacitor but they are for low torque loads especially fans where the load is a function of speed.
On a saw, there is the load of the belt drive to overcome during starting and I can't think of a belt driven machine I've come across (single phase) where a capacitor start motor is not essential.
Sorry I'm not familiar with strartrite saw model numbers. What max size blades go in a 145/165?
