I secured a table saw, but it immediately smells like it is burning

It is a Makita 2703 15 Amp 10-Inch Benchtop Table Saw. Its replacement sells for $528 on Amazon. Is it worth diagnosing the problem and trying to fix it? Having a tablesaw would be extremely useful. I have a circular saw, but a tablesaw would save a great deal of time. I have seen people screwing circular saws to the bottom of tables to rig tablesaws, but an actual tablesaw would be much better. Harbor Freight's version is $140 and eventually I will be able to get it a bit cheaper.

I could always put up a notification for Craigslist, but it would be far easier to find a used one back in the Phoenix area, I just rarely drive down there.

What do you guys think?

.

Make sure you're using a extension cord that's at least a 12/3 cord.
12/3 carries 15 amp. Anything less will shorten the saws life. (burn up)

Ryobi makes a decent Table Saw that is inexpensive.

No need to spend big bucks.

It immediately smells like it is burning. I did not try to bring wood or bring a motor.

As soon as it is plugged in or after the motor is turned on? Did you try turning the blade to make sure it isn't stuck?

Assuming it has 'em, check the brushes.

This page does not show brushes on the parts diagram, but owners mention it: https://www.ereplacementparts.com/ma...8_216_217.html

I will check it when I finish replacing my timing belt.

If the rated RPM is higher than 3,600rpm it's going to have brushes.
