Question about Dewalt Heavy - Duty 12" Double - Bevel Compound Miter Saw - DW716

1 Answer

I have a 12" double bevel compound mitre saw, DW716. It appears it is not running at the full rpm's and bright blue sparks are coming out of the motor. I replaced both brushes and it's still doing the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

The commutator is dirty. Take a light grade sand paper and slip it in the opening and turn the motor by hand while you clean the comm with the paper. Fold the sand paper or put it on a stick so you can make contact to clean the comm.

Sounds like the brushes in the motor or the switch is bad. If you have a meter you can test the switch to rule that out.

I have a dw716 saw when you first turn on the blade wobbles then straightens up. I replaced the bearing and the gear spindle still same problem.


I own a DW716. My blade wobbled. I found that the small bearing on the motor end of the blade spindle had been pressed out a bit. This bearing is right behind (or perhaps attached to) the cap that shows on the motor side of gear assembly housing. I tapped it back in so it was flush to, or even a bit inset of the surface of the gear assembly housing and the wobble disappeared! Yeah! Cheap and Easy.

Make sure its a compound mitre and not just a mitre saw. The check in the back for a round knob with degrees marks on it, theres your adjuster.
