I would return it to the store, or have it fixed under warranty. You obviously have a defective saw. Dewalt is a reputable company, and they make high quality tools, but defects do op up once in a while from all manufacturers.
It sounds like your saw has a defective heat sensor, and it is sensing the temperature incorrectly and shutting the saw off to protect it.

Power is going to the motor on my dewalt 12 mitre saw but the motor is not spinning


Does the saw make any noise? If not it could be an open circuit in the field coils

Does not work intermitingly


Sounds like the brushes in the motor or the switch is bad. If you have a meter you can test the switch to rule that out.

I replaced the blade in the dewalt DW716 mitre, now the blade spins slow and trips my breaker??


Hello, W/D here.

Remove your new blade. With the hardware, bolt, washer,blade and cups off, try the saw. If it operates correctly, re-examine how the blade is installed One blade cup goes on, followed by the blade, then the other cup, followed by the washer and bolt assembly. If the cups were in the wrong order, the blade can drag against the frame of the saw, pulling too many amps, and tripping the breaker.

I have a dw716 saw when you first turn on the blade wobbles then straightens up. I replaced the bearing and the gear spindle still same problem.


I own a DW716. My blade wobbled. I found that the small bearing on the motor end of the blade spindle had been pressed out a bit. This bearing is right behind (or perhaps attached to) the cap that shows on the motor side of gear assembly housing. I tapped it back in so it was flush to, or even a bit inset of the surface of the gear assembly housing and the wobble disappeared! Yeah! Cheap and Easy.

The commutator is dirty. Take a light grade sand paper and slip it in the opening and turn the motor by hand while you clean the comm with the paper. Fold the sand paper or put it on a stick so you can make contact to clean the comm.
