Hello. It could be the switch or it could be the motor itself being burned out. Hopefully it is the switch. try hotwiring the switch to see if the saw operates then u will know.

My Mitre Saw won't start when trigger pulled, seams like a safety is on can't fine it thou.,

most saws have a breaker switch built into the motor.
check on the end of the motor close to where the power cord is attached.
there should be a small button that will pop out if it is popped, usually if the saw is overloaded.
when saw is cooled, push in on button, it will click & stay in when reset.

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.

Mitre saw blows breaker

bad cord, switch wired wrong, or bad motor. Pull the cover off the motor. Disconect the power. Sping the balde by hand and look at the bars on the comm, end of the armature. They should be evenly colored and the spacing between them should be even and clean cut looking. If there is heavy discoloration on one or two bars or heavy pitting between a couple bars the armature is likely bad.

Mitre saw running, but not switched on?

there should be no power going anywhere until you pull on the trigger. With that in mind I would be looking at the switch for the fault

Macallister mitre saw sparking

I would plug it into another outlet first. The small arcing that you see might be normal especially on stopping because of the brake. If another outlet doesn't work then I would take it back. Upon startup this saw will draw more than the rated running amps.

My mitre saw won't power up. I moved it and it worked a few days ago. I have it plugged in. The electrical plug has power (checked with something else) but the saw won't turn on. Is there a reset...

There may be a RED reset button on the motor, It won't push very far, Unplug the saw push the reset and try it again

You may have sustained some damage to the power cord and need to take a look at the internal cord connections
