Quite possible that you have worn out the circuit breaker with multiple trips. Try another circuit that is on a different breaker.

SOURCE: macallister mitre saw sparking

I would plug it into another outlet first. The small arcing that you see might be normal especially on stopping because of the brake. If another outlet doesn't work then I would take it back. Upon startup this saw will draw more than the rated running amps.

Tooltec 1800w mitre saw all I did was change the blade and now the saw is dead


Does the motor hum when you pull the trigger? If so, check that the push tab for securing the shaft from turning while changing the blade is pulled out all the way. Sometimes fine saw dust can get inside and prevent the spring from pushing the tab back out all the way. If there is no hum, check the power source.

Coord is fine tried many differant outlets, bu as soon as i plug it in the circuit braker trips.Any help about where the short is?


65 AMPS? That's drawing a LOT of power.
Is it tripping the breaker even before you pull the trigger?
If yes, I would use a continuity meter to start checking the various components. In particular, see if the switch is stuck in the ON position.
Unless you are experienced in tracking and performing electrical maintenance problem solving, this may be a situation best left to a repair shop.

I replaced the blade in the dewalt DW716 mitre, now the blade spins slow and trips my breaker??


Hello, W/D here.

Remove your new blade. With the hardware, bolt, washer,blade and cups off, try the saw. If it operates correctly, re-examine how the blade is installed One blade cup goes on, followed by the blade, then the other cup, followed by the washer and bolt assembly. If the cups were in the wrong order, the blade can drag against the frame of the saw, pulling too many amps, and tripping the breaker.
Here is a link to DeWalt. Enter your model # for manual download and exploded diagrams.

Ryobi compound mitre saw sliding 10" laser line is 1.5 mm out to the cut is there any way to adjust it


rotating the laser in its' housing moves it left and right. The hexagonal bolt on the sides needs to be loosened to do this, then it can also be adjusted up and down. Make sure the trigger to the saw is locked before doing this.
