Answer to: Why is my saw overheating?An overheating is usually a signal of a dysfunctional cooling fan. Over time, dirt and sawdust particles get stuck in the fan causing it to jam up. It could also be that the fan was damaged by a larger piece of debris entering the casing. In either case, you will have to switch out the fan. Since the fan is part of the motor assembly, the entire motor would need to be replaced. See the motor replacement guide for further instructions.
