Maybe 2 things can happens Or in the bad case the armature has become defect by dirty /or dry bad bearings if it smells or the housing became hot replace the armature or in the second case a broken or loose magnet ring this ring is on the armature and is working for the speedcontrol position 65 . can caused by a hot- dry and dirth bearing.

My Dewalt DW705 miter saw just stopped running,instantly. Have power all the way to the brushes,power through the switch when engaged. Still won't run. Any ideas?


The motor may have failed abruptly. There could be an open thermal overload if your saw is equipped with one buried in the motor windings.

My motor Boggs down


This can be caused by a dull blade. Installing one laminate floor is enough to dull a new carbide blade.

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 many watts required to run this saw?


15 amps x 120 volts = 1,800 watts. is what the book says. But although your saw will pull almost the full 15 amps on start up it drops drastically once running.

I replaced the blade in the dewalt DW716 mitre, now the blade spins slow and trips my breaker??


Hello, W/D here.

Remove your new blade. With the hardware, bolt, washer,blade and cups off, try the saw. If it operates correctly, re-examine how the blade is installed One blade cup goes on, followed by the blade, then the other cup, followed by the washer and bolt assembly. If the cups were in the wrong order, the blade can drag against the frame of the saw, pulling too many amps, and tripping the breaker.
Here is a link to DeWalt. Enter your model # for manual download and exploded diagrams.

This is common IF the blade clamping nut becomes loose... the blade will free wheel on the arbor after the motor stops. It can tear up the arbor so investigate this possibility immediately.

Intermittent miter saw


In order of cost, for the likely problem.

Inspect the brushes to make sure that they are making good contact with the armature, this would make it run intermittently and are the most common and cheapest. Next would be the thumb switch, it reverses the polarity momentarily and causes the motor to brake. These are the most common reasons it won't run, especially if the brake is not working or being intermittent, the switch is the problem; and if this doesn't fix it, then I'd try the controller.

Hope this helps, if so, mark my answer please so I know if I've helped or not.
