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...

Milwaukee magnum miter saw blade change

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 do you align the blade to the mitre slot on a Dewalt 746 table saw? trying to find step by step instructions


How did the blade get out of whack? Take the blade all the way up, put a straight edge against the blade, measure to the miter slot front and rear, if it is not the same, you will have to lightly loosen the carriage underneath and bump the thing over one way or the other with a lead hammer. Get it straight, then torque it back up. You should be all set. You can set your fence to the miter slots the same way. lock it down and check it, if it isn't right, adjust the fence, all fence adjust , from the cheapest to the best. Hope this helps.

My blade gaurd will not automatically rotate out of the way when lowering the blade to make a cut , Ridgid 12' compound miter saw


MS12502 has a solid arm actuation to move the blade guard, this is either bent, broken, unattached or otherwise not functional. sometimes the moving parts get full of sawdust and a major cleaning is all thats needed. generally all woodworking tools should be blown out with air after each use or end of day.

actual model number of your saw would be more helpful.

How do I align the saw blade with the saw table I have a 10 inch Delta Contractor's saw that is about 10 years old. The blade is not straignt with the miter slot. andyc@bergeralllied.com


The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.
