Most table saws have a overload circuit breaker, check that. It is usually a red button that trips.

Ridgid Saws | Answered 2 days ago


It's the soft start feature of the saw that keeps your breakers from tripping or lights from dimming when the saw starts. Saw works perfectly fine without it.

best guess is the switch, the reversing links might be burned, typical for a reversing switch were the operator does not wait for the motor to stop before switching in reverse

If the part is missing you are stuck on that one, no fix that I have seen here, in fact I have never seen a single question about this make of table saw.

It seems like the compressor head is not pumping air.
No air pressure at all on gages at all? No air leaks? disconnect the compressor head (t- joint) and varify air is or is not being pumped.
Compressor air inlet filter section, you can also varify that air is being sucked in to the compressor head there by the pump action.

Check your wiring, Line to line, load to load. Line is power coming in, load is to the motor. Check for packing that should have been removed. Inspect the pressure switch contacts to make sure they open at desired psi and adjust as necessary. A nut or screw pushing on a spring adjusts tank psi. Loose unloaded spring is less pressure, tight compressed spring is more pressure before cut off..

If it's gunked up with tar, I would spray WD40 to clean it up. Silicon spray is a good lubricant for maintenance of certain tools

I would first make sure there is power going to it, switch it on, tap on the pressure/power/control switch, open it up and visual inspection of the contacts to varify the contacts are closed or on. Look for a reset button, the electric motor may have on on its end bell. Use a voltage tester as needed, caution, electricity may cause injury and even *****.

What cutting compound are you using?

Your options appear to be:
1) contact the manufacturer: 800-474-3443
https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/contact-us
2) try to find the part on ebay
Here it is on ebay (purportedly): https://www.ebay.com/i/One-1-Ridgid-trunnion-clamp-shoe-part-823565-for-14-bandsaw-/112577506256?rmvSB=true
3) check the users forum on the www.ridgid.com website
4) look for a used one for parts

I have no way of knowing the part numbers and how such might match with parts sold on ebay. The manufacturer might be able to help with such. The part number you supply appears to be for a "shoe." I do not find replacement sources.
