My Dewalt miter saw DW718 seems frozen. When I squeeze the handle, the blade doesn't move and the motor makes a sound like it's laboring, but stuck.


There's a little black button to press to lock the blade so you can loosen the screw. Did it get stuck in the in position? Can you turn the blade by hand (unplugged of course)?
I believe the 718 has a belt drive. Could the belt be broken and be buckled or twisted in its case preventing any movement?
Was it left out in the weather and did you get water in the bearings?

Dewalt DW718 Sparks When cutting . just bought it


The people from Lowes were right.
There are two types of motor designs: Induction motors and brush-type motors.
All electric motors that have brushes make sparks where the brushes contact the rotating commutator. They also run less efficiently but they are a bit smaller than induction motors for equal power output. Brushed motors can also deliver greater power at initial startup.
Because the sparks in brushed motors create heat, the housing around the motors typically have ventilation slots for air to go through to keep the commutator cool. This means you are likely to see the sparks if you look in the right place.
Since it's more difficult to get an induction motor turning, they typically have a "start capacitor" mounted on the side of the motor to give an extra kick to get the stator turning. While induction motors use less power when running, the amperage they use at start-up is typically double the running amperage.

My brand new DW718 Double bevel sliding compound miter saw won't turn on


The only thing to do is go through the machines electrics bit by bit untill you find out the problem. First check the plug wiring (and fuse if 240V), then check the continuity from the plug terminals to the switch terminals to determine if the cable is ok. Always worth just popping the brush overs off and making sure the brushes aren't sticking. Any further than that and you should really have it checked by a professional. It should be covered by a twelve month warranty, and if there is a definate problem I know as a UK service agent we are instructed to just exchange the machine within thirty days of purchase/delivery (subject to workshop examination).

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.

How do i get guard out of way to replace blade..DW718


Make sure the saw is unplugged, manually move the blade guard up to it's fullest extension, push the arbor lock to make sure the arbor and blade do not spin (on front of saw motor housing), then wrench the nut holding the blade to remove. Remove the old blade, install new one and reassemble in reverse order. You can take the guard off completely if you choose, but it is not necessary. I hope this helps and good luck!
PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE AND LEAVE A TESTIMONIAL. THANK YOU
