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.

MOTOR IS NOT WORKING


You could try blowing some compressed air into the area around the switch and see if it helps.
Otherwise, it's most likely the cord or the switch.
Can you check to see that you actually have power to the switch. If yes, and you feel adventurous, then first remove the blade, then bypass the switch, (using a power strip as a cord switch) to check to see that the motor works, in which case it must be the switch...they do go out.

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.
