There's no debris or wood jammed in the housing around the blade, is there? Try unplugging and removing the blade, to make sure some wood hasn't gotten wedged in there somewhere.
Otherwise, make sure the blade is on tight. If so, there is likely a problem with the motor itself.
If it's still under warranty, I'd contact Ridgid at this link: http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/Support/
Otherwise, they have a tools forum where you might be more likely to find someone who's experienced a similar problem.
Being reconditioned, it sounds suspect to me...
Sorry I couldn't be any more helpful...

I have a 12" dewalt miter saw. I put a new blade on and now at startup it makes a real loud noise.???? Took the blade off doesn't make it even bought a new blade no luck. Any answers??


Just a thought; maybe your saw requires a 300 mm blade rather than a 12 inch?

The popular view is the two sizes are interchangeable but there is a small difference in diameter with the Imperial blade being about a quarter inch bigger than the metric.

I had a similar problem with an eight inch saw. When I fitted an eight inch blade it seemed to be ok but when switched on it made a loud noise, similar to yours I guess.
I was unwilling to buy another blade so I modified the saw to give the blade housing a little more clearance so I could use the eight inch.

The manual is for a 12 inch saw, but the instructions will be similar. UNPLUG THE SAW FIRST!

Where is the blade brake on the miter saw


The brake on electric motor driven tools is the field & armature. When running the switch provides power to both sides/poles of the field through the brushes and armature. When you release the switch half of the field is powered pulling the armature to a stop. If your bladed continues to spin when the switch is released, you need to replace the switch. The Ridgid part number for the proper switch is 503317000.

How to change the blade?


I don't know if this will help you much but I've got a DeWalt 14 inch chop saw and a 10 inch miter saw and they both have a small lever on the right hand side of frame just behind blade If you depress this lever and slowly rotate blade until it drops into place this locks the blade for changing. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

loosen the guard screw, UNPLUG tool first, move the guard out of the way, there is a spindle lockon the backside of the gearcase push it and slowly turn the blade until it engages and then remove the bolt, it is a left hand thread. DO NOT disassemble the guard, just loosen bolt and move out away from blade also you need to have the head in the raised position.
