Could be a faulty capacitor. Without the rectified current and the added emf or oomph the motor cannot move or is not sure which direction to move in. so it may sit there buzzing or even set off in the wrong direction.

1st Unplug the saw, then make sure that the blade will turn by hand. A small piece of wood maybe stuck around the blade or the guard. If everything is free'ed up then plug it back in. Check to make sure that the on/off - safety switch- is engaged all the way and not halfway on or off. Then try to turn the saw on. If you have a bag or collector near the base of the saw, empty it often. This will help keep the debris from jamming the blade.

Hi I have an hitachi c9u2 235mm 110 volt skill saw witch won't turn on I checked the lead and internal compartments for damage also checked the bushings and plug end all looks good any advice

Sounds sarcastic but make sure the power point is OK. If you have checked everything you said plug, lead, switch, wiring and brushes then the only thing left is the motor field coils of the armature. One of these is open circuit. That is a winding has broken. Some you can see and or smell but otherwise a circuit tester is your only friend. If you find that one of these is at fault then the unit is probably not worth repairing. Cheers Bob

Won't start

Symptom of poor contacts..
It could be the carbon brushes that you need to change?
Check the carbon brushes.
Use a wooden pallet to hit around the motor area and on the machine see if it can start.

How to replace carbon brushes for Hitachi C7U2

It sounds like they have become stuck due to non use. All you can do is try to pull them out. If they break, clean out the brush holders before you fit the new ones. Also check the armature is ok first.

How to change brushes on hitachi c18dl

The brushes on your saw motor (Hitachi part number 324-572) are not replaceable. That is to say, Hitachi does not sell them as a seperate part, they are built into/part of the motor.

Circular saw won't start after having cut pavers

You fried the motor and most of the time it isn't worth repairing, since the parts will cost you more that a replacement saw.

If you are going to continue to cut pavers, suggest you either take it very slow and cut 1 or .5 paver and then let it cool down. But a water cooled tile saw would be better.
