    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.

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.

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.

Miter saw motor is running back wards


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.

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.
