    Unusual for motor to start running backwards after 10 years... in fact almost impossible! Are you sure you have the blade installed in the right way? The teeth should be facing the back of the saw.

DON'T BE SURPRISED IF THE MOTOR STILL RUNS BACKWARDS. YOU CANNOT REVERSE AN
AC MOTOR BY REVERSING THE POWER WIRE CONNECTIONS.

I'd say it was the new wiring that was reversed. Motors cant really start reversing themselves on their own and the only other way it would seem reversed is if the blade was put on backwards...

So yes I think you have the wires reversed when you re-wired the cord.

Will not cut 45 miter cuts perfect


Possible but I would think not likely
Try this
Put a new blade on
Set a magnet on the table or fence with phillips screw driver stuck to it
Slide the point of the screw driver up to within 1/16" from the blade just above the teeth
Run the unplugged saw by hand and watch for any side to side movement of the blade
Can you move the blade up and down or side to side?
If everything seems normal the plug the saw in and run it again watching the screwdriver
Please be careful don't allow the screw driver to contact the blade at high speed you will create a bullet

Motor on miter saw is runnig back wards


I would suggest going to Milwaukeetool.com and typing in your model number and pulling up a wiring schematic for this tool. If your switch and field are not as shown on this breakdown (its a good one) I would either take it to a repair center or change what is wrong one wire at a time. They also have a toll free number and would be more than willing to help with your problem. Let me know and have a good day. P.S. I would not run the blade backwards though.

Solution for "changing blades on a milwaukee miter saw


Have you removed the old blade yet?

The blade lock my be broken off -- it should be a button on top of the motor.

This saw has left hand threads -- turn clockwise to loosen the bolt/nut.

If you can't find the blade lock, lower the saw onto a piece of wood llike a 2x4 to keep the blade from turning.

Loose replacement blade


I completely removed the blade and put it back on, tightening the locknut, and now it works perfectly. The blade has not come loose and have used the machine for the last 3 months. The only thing I can think of is that somehow I didn't have the blade correctly installed in the first place, although it didn't wobble or anything.

Changing the saw blade on a Ryobi Mitre saw


There may be a push button type blade lock, and on many of these saws the retaining bolt for the blade is backwards threads, e.i., looking at the top of blade retaining bolt, turn it clockwise to loosen. This would normally tighten, but in the case of many of these saws, it loosens it.
