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

1 Answer

Frozen slide mechanism

I recently purchase the Makita 10" sliding miter saw and it worked fine the first couple of cuts. The last time the slide became frozen in the extended position. Are there any adjustments or recommended ways to loosen this up?

The pillow block bearing, guide bushings, or even the slide lock mechanism could be the culprit.

I have a Malita dual sliding compound miter saw LS1016LX. Trigger will not start saw after 5-10 cuts. When saw sits for 30 minutes, it runs again.


I'd contact a Makita dealer. I've had this saw for years without a single misfire on the trigger. Could be heat related, but that's a stretch. Here's their contact information:

Hello stella....... There is a locking mechanism on the miter saw to lock it on whatever setting you require. loosen that locking mechanism and the saw should move for you. Here is a schematic of the parts so you can see exactly which parts are involved

My saw is really stiff when you try to change the angle .I oiled it but this didn't help. I would like to know how to take it apart but I am un sure how to do it and what is in the boxed off area...


Exploded diagram with parts list for LS1016 10" Dual Slide Compound miter saw is here.

Owner's manual is here. If these aren't quite what you need, you can view other models of Makita miter saws, here.

One thing to bear in mind. There's a miter angle lock and a slide lock on the bottom front of the saw. If you don't have the miter angle lock loose enough, it will be difficult to turn the saw.

Not cutting square


You might have an adjustment on the swing arm itself, for fine tuning the cut. If you still have the manual, it should give details.

45 degree cut


Are you having problems with the miter or bevel ? Are you asking how to physically move the saw to that degree angle?
