    I don't understand your post. What is meant by spiking? What kind of table saw are you referring to?

    Have you checked or cleaned out the switch assembly?
    Sounds like it is tripping or arcing or getting stuck near the ON position.

Makita MLT100 table saw when stop button is pressed the motor switches off saw seems to be running really roughly and the the blade takes an age to stop spinning. Normally blade stops really quickly.


I can't find this saw at Makita; so, generally. Follow all safety precautions. :-)
If the saw is running rough, the first thing I'd check is the brushes for the motor, especially if it has any age. These are fairly inexpensive and will solve a lot of woes. The next thing would be to check the thumb switch, if it has one. This is the switch that allows you to pull the trigger to run the saw, if it's just a button, then check the actual trigger switch to make sure it's working properly as it probably, not always, also engages the brushes to reverse the motor for a second, to slow it down so it stops faster.

So, check the brushes on the motor, if they show any signs of wear, it's probably them. 2nd, check the switch. Please let me know and if I've helped, give me a vote up. Thanks.

My hitachi miter saw started to buzz when plugged in. It's seems to work normal when trigger is pulled but starts to smoke when I release the trigger. Bushing poor good. I have no idea what is wrong?


have it investigated by an appliance repair shop
the system is this
plug in --no noise
pull trigger -- blade spins and makes running noise
release trigger and blade stops -- no noise
anything else indicates a serious problem with the unit especially if it is smoking.

I have a 46 cc with an 18" bar. The first few times I used the saw it worked fine. Now I am up to the 5th use and once started the blade spins and the saw runs as if you are giving it full gas. ...


If this is a new saw and you have only used it a few time it may still be under warranty. Saw sometimes carry up to 1 year warranty on some applications(what you use it for-home-owner or commercial). If the saw is out of warranty it sounds like you have a problem with the rod alignment (actually it's a stiff wire) but it seems that it may be holding the throttle valve open. Check the trigger action to see if is actually smooth and not binding. When you squeeze and release the trigger the saw should stop. If it does not you must find where it is binding. Look under the carburetor and check the action there. Squeeze and release that trigger until you see something either binding or out of the ordinary in the action. When you release the trigger the saw should stop. Have fun. Then get back to work!

Erratic starting circular saw


Sounds to me like you have a bad cord. Clamp the saw to a workbench so that it can start and run safely without you having to hold it. Put tape or a wire tie around the trigger to hold it in. THEN plug it in. Then move the cord around, especially near where it enters the saw. If the saw starts and stops intermittently you have confirmed the bad cord. Good luck.

My saw will cut for 5 seconds and then the blade stops spinning. When I back the blade out it starts again and the process is repeated. It takes a long time to cut wood this way. What's the problem? Is...


I would suspect a combination of the two! You blade probably isn't sharp and your saws brushes are probably getting worn. The brushes are made of carbon and are pushed up against the rotor by a spring. As the brush wears down the spring doesn't put as much pressure on the brushes which means it will stop working when placed under heavy load.

The saw do not stop when i off the trigger


the commutator might be dirty, try and turning the brushes 180 degrees and you might have to clean the commutator with a stone for that purpose to seat the brushes.

BRAKE DOES NOT STOP BLADE WHEN TRIGGER IS


the guard not releasing could be dirt around the spindle hub or the guard is bent, I would unplug tool and manually pull the guard down to see which one, if it is just sticking you can use a dry lube to cure that, the break could be dirty commutator or worn out brushes, switch. Give me the model number and I will try and find a breakdown for you and go further.
