If you cannot get the carbon pieces and/or spring out of the brush holder your only option is to take the saw apart and remove the armature. From there you can either push the carbon piece(s) through or out from the other side. It will also give you a better assessment of any damage caused to the brush holder and armature contacts.

It sounds like the armature has developed an open commutator bar. What did the brushes look like that you took out. But before I assume the worst I would unplug the tool and remove both brushes and with a flas light look into the brush tube while slowly rotating the armature looking for a discoloration or raised bar. If not you might bet by with cleaning the commutator with a special stone for this, you might be able to get one at the repair shop where you bought the brushes. If you want to send me the photo of the arcing it might help on my end. Let me know

SOURCE: I took the guard off the 10" Makita Mitre saw (spring loaded)!

Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.

rotating the laser in its' housing moves it left and right. The hexagonal bolt on the sides needs to be loosened to do this, then it can also be adjusted up and down. Make sure the trigger to the saw is locked before doing this.

Relace the switch.

I am presuming the lock button has not been inadvertently pressed ... Check that first.

The condition you deacrive is dangerous. Please fix it before you use it any more.

If you require additional assistance, let me know.

Otherwise, check RepairClonic.com for parts and technnical instruction from their crack crew.

Thanks for the opportunity to lend you a hand

But a broken collector on the armature , sound resaistance check the armature place the multimeter on the both carbon brushes so that you have sound (thats must be given) and turn slow the sawblade by hand if its stops then there is a bad (or) collector(s) on the armature.

How to replace brushes when they will not come out normally?


I had the same issue. Turns out the brushes were fused into the brush mounts. I pulled on the copper end cap and wire only to break it off at the carbon brush end. I had to pull the motor out of the housing (stator) to expose the brushes. I then used a tool to push the carbon brushes back in and out of the brush mount assembly. You could also push from the outside in, just make sure you get all the carbon pieces and use a tool that won't put scratches in your brush housings. My brushes where well over 1/2 inch long....but they were just fused into the assembly, so the spring wasn't pushing it properly against the commutator, which I am guessing was the reason my saw just stopped in mid use....I had ripped a straight line in a board and stopped for a few seconds to reposition the saw only to find it no longer worked.

How to replace carbon brushes for Hitachi C7U2


It sounds like they have become stuck due to non use. All you can do is try to pull them out. If they break, clean out the brush holders before you fit the new ones. Also check the armature is ok first.

How to replace carbon brushes for Hitachi C7U2


brushes can get jammed in the holders if not used for a while. If you can not pull them out then you will have to cut the wire in the middle of the spring, remove the main body from the aluminium casing and push them through. Then replace them with a new set after cleaning the holders so the new ones slide in and out smoothly.

My saw will cut for 5 seconds and then the blade stops spinning. When I back the blade out it starts again and the process is repeated. It takes a long time to cut wood this way. What's the problem? Is...


I would suspect a combination of the two! You blade probably isn't sharp and your saws brushes are probably getting worn. The brushes are made of carbon and are pushed up against the rotor by a spring. As the brush wears down the spring doesn't put as much pressure on the brushes which means it will stop working when placed under heavy load.

The switch of the saw is not working 00


You need an AC voltmeter to trace the problem with the switch. It can also be a bad motor brush/spring--these saws are great for killing motor brushes, and there are virtually no replacements available as Remington has ceased saw operations. If it is a bad brush, visit an electrical tool shop to see if they have something that will work from a different brand of tool. Good luck!
