SOURCE: blade brake not working 1/2 the time on Hitachi C15FB chop saw

d70d03f.jpg3f82e5b.jpg38ca90b.jpg4367374.jpg063ef2e.jpg1add57c.jpg98eea3c.jpg The first picture is the only one I could find of your saw.
All saws are fitted with carbon bushes that contact the armature of the electric motor.
In time the carbon which conducts the electricity wears down, as they disintegrate there are particles of broken carbon connect with the armature giving an intermittent burst of power, eventually the bushes no longer contact the armature and the saw does not work at all.
The next photos show the approximate position of the cover to access the bushes, there is one one each side of the housing.

They usually unscrew and expose the spring plate the bush is mounted on, gently pull this out.
As you can see the bush is worn in a concave shape, and that the wide side is breaking up.
If this is your problem then take the bush and model number of your saw to a supplier or spare parts shop or the hitachi web site to get replacements.
Hope this helps.
If anyone finds this information helpful please tell fixya
Cheers
Les

SOURCE: The laser stopped working on Hitachi 12'dual

The laser modules in saws are usually powered by induction from the spinning saw blade. Since your saw is only three months old hopefully you either registered it with Hitachi when you bought it or you still have your receipt as this type of failure would be covered under warranty. Call Hitachi, they may send the part to you if you are comfortable with doing the repair or they will tell you where the nearest Authorized Service Center is for warranty work. Hitachi's number is: 800-706-7337 or 770-925-1774.

SOURCE: My 10 inch miter saw

Get some Paslode tool cleaner and spray it all around the crevices of the trigger using the tube(straw) provided,while pulling the trigger back and releasing several times. You have debris in the mechanism.

SOURCE: 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.

How to use a ryoby 7 1/4 circular saw with laser the first time?


Insert the battery for the laser according to instructions or remove the plastic security strip from the factory that prevents the battery from draining during shipment. There might be a switch to slide on; otherwise just pull the trigger and start cutting.

My hitachi c8fb2 saw won't turn off


It sounds like your switch has a short circuit. It is quite unusual for this to happen and due to the nature of the fault I would highly advise not using the saw until it is sorted. If you are uneasy about working on the electrical parts of this you can find your nearest service agent on their website. Hitachi service page, put ypur postcode in the box on the top right.

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.

I do not have a compound saw, just a regular Hitachi skill saw. Often when I'm cutting through wood, the blade will suddently stop with trigger depressed. I can back it up and it immediatly starts again....


I would suggest 2 things... first check that your blade is tight... and second make sure that your power supply is adequate...no long skinny cords or sharing outlets
