    Is this a newer saw? Have you done any electrical work to it? I haven't heard of a saw doing this in a long time. Give me the exact model number and I will find a wiring schematic for it. It is possible that some wires on the switch are reversed and or the field is in 180 deg out. Let me know

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.

The blade brake is not working on my miter saw.


Clean your saw ! Use your air compressor with an attachment to get back in the nooks & crannies, blowing all the caked up sawdust out.

My saw stops rotating during cutting


does the motor stop? If not the gears are worn between armature and spindle. If it does stop you could be applying too much pressure trying to cut with a blunt blade or there is an armature fault.

Jammed my 6230 bandsaw during a cut and now it won't start. Are their fuses I can replace?


Go to Milwaukee Tool website and try to check if you can download a manual or electrical diagram there. You can call or email them. Check the motor capacitor.
Are you using an old or new band saw blade? If it's old/dull, try different blade. If it's new, the weld might be really bad. Old Blade and Bad weld can cause the blade to jump off. I purchased band saw blades on www.sawblade.com . Great quality blades; they have porta band blades. Call them.

I want to know the steps needed to replace a 1/2" keyed chuck.on a Milwaukee 0234-6 Magnum Drill


they make a service fixture for that BUT if you can find a thin wall open end wrench that will fit behind the chuck on the hex of the spindle you can still do it. What you will need to do is remove the left hand chuck retaining screw, put the wrench or similar item over the hex and then put the chuck key in a hole that is about a 30 degree so that you can strike it counter clockwise to remove. That chuck is on tight and there no easy way to remove it like you can do on cordless items.

Blade stops in middle of cut, slipping motor rpm is un changed. 10" compound sliding Bosch miter saw


Going on the information aas I read it, the blade is slipping, meaning that it is not tightened enough or a spacer in the hole in the blade is too thick. Make sure that the wall plug is pulled out before attempting any work on the blade.

Tripping 20 amp breaker


when things start overheating componants start to break down. sounds like you need to check the armature and field for burnt areas. at least change the brushes. were you bearing down hard? sounds like the motor may not be enough to cut quickly, maybe more slowly. hope this helps
