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?

Not a good idea. Miter saw are too dangerous to be altering them in any way.

The only way to turn the saw off is to unplug it. Ryobi 10 inch sliding compound miter saw model TSS100L


You may be able to take the handle apart and, using compressed air, blow any sawdust out of the handle and switch but most likely you'll have to replace the switch.

The pivot is probably full of pitch or other debris. Clean with turpentine if you work with pine or other resinous woods.

My 10 inch mikita slide saw just quit working. I tested the trigger switch and it seems to be fine but the saw motor won't run. Does anyone have any ideas?


Try another tool in the same power outlet. It may have popped a breaker. Make sure the blade turns freely. Does the motor have brushes that should be looked at? Hope this helps!

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?
