This is the newer 744 series, white cord to white motor and black cord wire to black motor.

If your motor needs the mag starter that 5th loose wire, usually red, goes to the start terminal on the mag starter.

Have a dewalt dw708-lx type3 just replaced the on/off switch as the previous failed(13yr old)did two cuts this morning and new switch has now failed

Curious if you have tested the switch to make sure it is the problem? Also, have you checked the armature & brushes (make sure the brushes move freely in the brush tubes and squarely contact the armature)?
The DW708 is prone to bearing issues and the field is not uncommon either.

It would be unlikely to have a new switch fail that soon unless there is another issue causing it.

Rebuild dw708

I assume you are asking about the Dewalt
DW708 TYPE 3 Crosscut Miter Sawas seen here

Have you taken it apart yet? You will need screwdrivers, spring clip pliers, small bearing puller and a pipe same diameter as the inside of the bearing; for replacement of bearing.
Be sure to take out the brushes before taking out the armature.
Part 165-90
You most likely will have to replace part 87 too.
The bearing rests in there and gets worn too.
Serious bearing/vibration problems causes the end cap part 84, to wear out.

I have a dewalt drill model #dcd970 where the brake is not working. What could be the problem? And how can I fix this?

you would need to replace the switch, the brake is internal. BEFORE removing the switch make a wiring diagram to help in reassembly and make sure the wires don't touch the motor. The switch is polarity sensitive. You can either get one from or, you can also try and locate a service center or authorized repair in your area at the Dewalt site. Let me know if you need more assistance

How do you replace a broken locking pin on dewalt dw708 miterbox? thx

You do not have to drill anything out, if you are talking about the hold-down locking pin that keeps the blade assy locked down when not in use. I have created a tutorial for replacing the locking pin, you can find it here,
