Question about Saws
I noticed resistance while elevating the blade. Then while elevating the blade I heard a metallic pop from inside the mechanism. Now after I set the height the blade slowly drops once the saw is turned on. I looked inside expecting to find a broken part, but it all looks good. Any ideas? Thanks.

no good solution for that problem. dado blades vibrate and cause the knob to turn. possibly a clamp on the knob to keep it in place.

There's no debris or wood jammed in the housing around the blade, is there? Try unplugging and removing the blade, to make sure some wood hasn't gotten wedged in there somewhere.
Otherwise, make sure the blade is on tight. If so, there is likely a problem with the motor itself.
If it's still under warranty, I'd contact Ridgid at this link: http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/Support/
Otherwise, they have a tools forum where you might be more likely to find someone who's experienced a similar problem.
Being reconditioned, it sounds suspect to me...
Sorry I couldn't be any more helpful...

Is this it? If not, go to Makita site & download image of your saw. Hope this helps:http://www.makita.com/en-us/Assets/images/Products/_PartsBreakdowns/PB_LS1214FL.pdf

I would check to see that ID of the blade arbor matches the OD of the motor arbor, and you are not missing an adapter ring. Then I would get some acetone and a wire brush clean all surfaces where the blade seats. This is also good practice for Jacobs chucks on drills, that allow the drill bits to spin.
