I need to replace the 1HP, 115V motor that was on my Platinum Edition 14” Delta band saw. The motor, which I estimate had no more than 15 hours of total use, stopped running and began to smoke heavily this past weekend. The unit is out of warranty. Delta wants over $300.00 for a new motor.

I intend to check locally to see if it can be repaired. Anticipating the worse --- can anyone recommend a reliable alternative and hopefully lower cost source for a compatible motor? I live in northern Virginia but I’m not opposed to paying for shipping.

If you have any other suggestion of things I should be aware of while shopping for a new motor I’d like to hear from you.

Here are the particulars on the defective motor:

Made by Emerson
MGF # H99 7
1 HP, 1 Phase, 60 Hz, 115V
RPM 1725
Delta Motor Model T55BSK-1071

Thanks for your help.

Tom - hi, I live in the Northern Neck area of VA and work at Andrews AFB. I'm thinking you won't have too many problems finding a shop that can rebuild the motor. The motor sounds similar to the pump motor I have in my whirlpool tub.

If you don't come up with anything, you could probably call a small place named Dixie Electric at 90 W. Mercury Blvd. in Hampton, VA (757-722-0676). They rebuild starters and alternators primarily, but they may also work on motors. The place doesn't look like much from the outside - an old row house - and in the summer, the guy sells live bait while he repairs starters/alternators. I've had him rebuild 2 alternators and a starter, and I'll go back to him long before I go to the auto parts store for a "lifetime guaranteed" part! It's never cost me more than $60 for a repair that he guarantees for 2 years.

I hope this helps some - regards! Jim D/Heathsville, VA
