Question about Makita LS1013FL 15 Amp 10 Inch Dual Bevel Compound Sliding Miter Saw With Laser And Fluorescent Light

1 Answer

Makita LS1013 miter saw motor runs very slowly

The saw will start, usually, but only runs very slowly and not at a consistent speed. This model have a soft start. I'm think it may have something to do with the controller. Does that sound right? The saw is about years old and hasn't been used hard. Is this something that can be fixed or will it need a new part?
Thanks for the help,
Dave

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.

Makita LS1013 110V feels underpowered. What could have caused this? Brushes are barely worn.


How underpowered? running at half speed? If so check the wiring in the 110v plug. I have seen saws come into the workshop where 1 of the wires is connected to earth pin this results in 55v being fed to saw hence 1/2 speed. Is there heavy arcing at the commutator? if yes armature probably blown. If not still worth examining armature for discolouration, examine field coils at same time if everything seems ok then a possibility is the controller. You could try by passing the controller and if saw seems to run better then you know you need a new controller. It is located at the back of the motor. If you are not sure about electrics do not try this you may electrocute your self or blow the controller.

Makita LS1013 chop saw just started making a bad bearing noise and the elecric brake is not kicking in after the trigger is released.


You will have to check if it is a bearing going and the electric brake may not be getting any power to it now or it could be sticking.

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


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.
