Question about Makita 10" Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw with Light LS1013F

2 Answers

Brand new miter saw/ran for 10 hours power was not consistent, then nothing

This is a makita sliding dual mitersaw # LS1013, that I bought a few years ago (brand new) as a back up. I never used it under it's warranty. Shipped it to Hawaii and repair guy here says it needs a new motor. Has this been a problem with these saws, or do I have a lemon?
I've been a Makita guy for ever and have bought many of your tools, I recently bought my fifth power planer over my carpentry carrier and I'm pretty disappointed with this saw.

What part of the motor has blown? There is the armature and field coil and they won't always need replacing at the same time. There are brushes as-well, but as they are quite cheap I'm guessing you have been quoted on one or both of the motor parts to be replaced. Have you asked the repair guys for a report. They should be able to suggest a reason for what has blown and why by looking at the faulty parts. Although most manufacturers and service agents have discretion over warranty claims, if your machine is more than a few months over htere is almost definately noting you can do on the warranty side of things.

How do I remove the threaded rod from beneath the turn table of a Mikita LS1013 Slide Compound Mitre Saw ? I have removed the two black turning/tightning handles but cannot see how the rod is removed.


if you removed the handle from the rod you would need to put a pair of pliers on it gently and remove it. or if you turn it upside down and remove the tube from sliding mechanism you can grip the rod from there and unscrew

MOTOR IS NOT WORKING


You could try blowing some compressed air into the area around the switch and see if it helps.
Otherwise, it's most likely the cord or the switch.
Can you check to see that you actually have power to the switch. If yes, and you feel adventurous, then first remove the blade, then bypass the switch, (using a power strip as a cord switch) to check to see that the motor works, in which case it must be the switch...they do go out.

Makita LS1013 miter saw motor runs very slowly


Could be a bearing problem. If the bearings are dry and seizing up they will hinder the motor speed. Alternatively, if they are worn and allowing lateral movement in the motor the armature will rub against the field windings when it all magnatizes (sp?). I would investigate bearings before electrics. Hope this helps, good luck.
