Question about Saws
Got a brand new saw a few weeks ago and from the start it has made a weird grinding noise on starting up and it sounds like it's getting worse. It makes like a loud noise like gears not fully engaging with each other for about two seconds then proceeds to work normally, but happens every time you start the saw up. Is this something I need to worry about or is it normal?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Possibly bearing wear, or the blade rubbing against the guard/housing. Unplug the saw and spin the blade slowly by hand, if it feels notchy then I would suggest bearing wear. if it only seems to feel notchy in places then it could also be damaged gears.

Sounds like starter isn't disengaging, get that checked pronto, you could be damaging the flywheel (very expensive). Could be any appliance also; a/c compressor, idler pully, alternator, etc. Don't wait.

Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.
