Question about Bosch 12" Compound Miter Saw 3912

Bosch Miter Saw Turned On By Itself

Our Bosch saw turned on by itself. It was plugged in however no one was near it, there was no power surge, and it hadn't been used in over an hour. We are at a loss on how this could have happened. Both the safety switch and the "on" switch work fine. No problems with the saw prior to this happening. Wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

    I work on the Bosch tools and have never heard of this, however I think to be on the safe side I would replace the switch. It could have been a buildup of dirt and arced across to complete the circuit or the trigger possibly stuck, personally I would not take that chance. You can go to Boschtools.com and find the switch and you might also send them an email explaining the problem

A ghost in the machine?
That sounds like a good one for Bosch tech support. I've never heard of any saw doing that, and I bet they'd be interested to know about it...
All I can imagine is a short in the switch, some kind of power surge you weren't aware of, or a practical joke.
At any rate: Contact Bosch: http://www.boschtools.com/Service/ContactUs/Pages/default.aspx

My saw won't run when I press the switch trigger.


First, check the outlet it's plugged into.
Power cords can go open, try holding the trigger (careful), and bend the power cord near the plug, and near the saw.
Trigger switches can go out.
saw motors can go out.

Makita miter saw wontr turn on


make sure that your outlet is hot, once verfied that you have power going to the plug of the saw cord, verify that you dont have any breaks in the cord itself. once verified no issues with cord you can check for power at the switch, if there is power at the switch but not coming on, probably bad switch.

Bosch Glide Miter Saw get stuck at 45 degree bevel to the left


Adjusting the miter angle involves two cast surfaces sliding against each other. If those surfaces have some irregularities, high spots on the two surfaces will bind against each other. You may have to disassemble the rotating table from the base and do some filing or grinding.

My 10" Bosch miter saw


I would remove the blade and try the saw again, there is a possibility that you might have gotten a flange on incorrectly or left the spacer out.

Blade stops in middle of cut, slipping motor rpm is un changed. 10" compound sliding Bosch miter saw


Going on the information aas I read it, the blade is slipping, meaning that it is not tightened enough or a spacer in the hole in the blade is too thick. Make sure that the wall plug is pulled out before attempting any work on the blade.

Bosch sliding miter saw, the bearings in the slide mechanism are catching making a jerky slide, have tried wd40 any ideas?


Have you tried blowing out the mechanism with a compressed air nozzle? Frequently this friction is caused not by the bearing itself but instead by debris, sawdust, etc. built up inside the base of the saw. I'd give it a good cleaning to begin with.
If that doesn't work, try applying bearing lubricant directly to the bearing races.Use an extension straw if needed so you can get to them, as this is designed to penetrate where even the reliable old wd40 may not reach. You can find this a specialty woodworking stores, as well as some well-equiped home centers.
Let us know if this works, or you've already solved the problem...
