Brand new out the box dw716 dewalt compound dual bevel miter saw cut one board & quit. Left it alone for about 10 minutes & it worked when we came back. Made about 10 more cuts & it stopped again. We are only cutting 1x6 board. What the hell?

I would return it to the store, or have it fixed under warranty. You obviously have a defective saw. Dewalt is a reputable company, and they make high quality tools, but defects do op up once in a while from all manufacturers.
It sounds like your saw has a defective heat sensor, and it is sensing the temperature incorrectly and shutting the saw off to protect it.

Testimonial: "It started working when my husband used it. He said he just squeezed the trigger harder but it quit on him too. HA! It wasn't just me. We returned it an exchange & have had no problems. Thank you for your advice."

You are tripping the saw's internal overload protection. When tripped, the internal breaker must cool and reset itself before the saw will run again.
This can be caused by using a dull blade (not likely since you say it's a new saw, although if you've used it to install laminate flooring, that would dull the blade after one job)
Tripping the overload breaker can be caused by using the wrong blade for the job or by forcing the blade through the wood too quickly.
The motor has two windings--a start winding and a run winding. There's a centrifugal switch in the motor that switches from one to the other when the motor gets up to speed. If either of the windings are bad or if the switch is stuck, this will cause the breaker to trip.

Did you sense an odd smell? Try removing the brushes, there should be two, it could be one is worn too short or the connecting wire is broken.

SOURCE: I bought the 10" compound

I have been in the same situation in the past, with a mastercraft miter saw to a point of using playing cards to get that nice tight miter joint. placing the cards between the fence and the piece i was trying to miter.Rioby makes mastercraft all thought they are a good saw they have their limits to the precisions of their cuts. good for fences,decks, stuctural framing ect, were a degree two is not a big thing,but when making furniture or interior trim work or picture frames or hobby craft you need to buy a good pro saw like a dewalt or bosh sliding compoud miter saw they may cost more **** their worth the money they are very precise and will last a life time if taken care of .It will be worth the money when you get that perfect cut every time you use it,it will put the JOY and fun back in your projects and not to mention qualaty in your master pieces.

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...


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.
