You will have to check if it is a bearing going and the electric brake may not be getting any power to it now or it could be sticking.

SOURCE: i need step by step on putting blade guard back on Makita LS1013

Go to Makitatools.com and in the header type in your model number and just follow thru till you can download a parts breakdown with exploded view of the guard. Just lay parts out in the order you see them and its not hard to reassemble. Might I ask what happened to guard? If you stilll have problems let me know and I will help. If I have helped you with your request would you please rate this response accordingly. Thank you.

Can I bypass (hotwire) the controller on my Makita ls1013 Miter saw?


Not a good idea. Miter saw are too dangerous to be altering them in any way.

Makita LS1013 110V feels underpowered. What could have caused this? Brushes are barely worn.


How underpowered? running at half speed? If so check the wiring in the 110v plug. I have seen saws come into the workshop where 1 of the wires is connected to earth pin this results in 55v being fed to saw hence 1/2 speed. Is there heavy arcing at the commutator? if yes armature probably blown. If not still worth examining armature for discolouration, examine field coils at same time if everything seems ok then a possibility is the controller. You could try by passing the controller and if saw seems to run better then you know you need a new controller. It is located at the back of the motor. If you are not sure about electrics do not try this you may electrocute your self or blow the controller.

Makita LS1013 saw head is frozen tight and will not move down freely to cut position How is the head disassembled from the body of the tool?


With problems like this, I would always recommend getting in touch with your local Makita service agent, details of which will be on the Makita website, then using the dealer locator tab.
However, before thinking about taking the head off, have you checked all other options. Does the lock pin have free movement and is it well clear of the cast arm? Is the guard and guard release system working properly. The arm will not lower if the guard isn't retracting properly. You should also make sure the cutting arm linkage and spring are clean and lubed (WD40 should be fine). The arm is under tension due to the return spring so make sure that is secured/removed first, then remove the pivot pin and the arm should come away. Click here for a diagram, the spring is on page 1, position 13 and the pivot pin etc is on page 2, pos 85/86/87/96/95. The guard and associated parts are also on page 1.

How do u remove the blade on a chop saw ls1013


Be sure the saw is switched off and unplugged. Use the Makita socket wrench on the side of the saw base if you still have it. If not make sure you use a socket or wrench that fits the bolts properly so you get them off and back on without damaging them. Lock the handle in the up position with the stopper pin. Loosen the hex bolt holding the center cover in place, this will let you raise the guard and center cover so you can get at the blade bolt. There is a button on the back side of the blade guard that locks the spindle. Push and hold the button in and turn the blade until it locks in place. Using the socket wrench, turn the blade bolt clockwise or in the same direction the blade turns while cutting to remove it, the outer flange and blade. Put the new blade on (check that the direction of the arrow on the blade is the same as on the guard), the outer flange and blade bolt. Use the spindle lock to get the bolt on tight. Return the center cover to it's original position and tighten it's hex bolt. Turn the blade by hand to make sure the spindle lock released then pull the stopper pin and make sure the blade guard works properly.

My LS1013 saw head is in the down storage position and will not raise up. It is not pinned.


you need to depress it fully to disengage the lock. If the head does not depress enough there is a screw that you would need to loosen on the left hand side to allow for the head to travel lower. Make sure there is nothing under the blade to affect movement before trying bolt.

Unable to lift the saw blade Makita Miter Saw


Look at the pivot point on the rear of the miter saw for the push/pull locking pin. The pin is there so you can lock the saw in the down position for easier carrying. To unlock the saw, simply pull the locking pin out (Makita calls this the "stopper pin"). Then you can use the saw and easily raise and lower it for cutting.

As you might find it helpful to have, I have included a link from the Makita web site for a free copy of the owners manual that you can print or save for future use and reference. It has some handy info on use and care of your saw.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
