Question about Makita Saws
I can't find this saw at Makita; so, generally. Follow all safety precautions. :-)
If the saw is running rough, the first thing I'd check is the brushes for the motor, especially if it has any age. These are fairly inexpensive and will solve a lot of woes. The next thing would be to check the thumb switch, if it has one. This is the switch that allows you to pull the trigger to run the saw, if it's just a button, then check the actual trigger switch to make sure it's working properly as it probably, not always, also engages the brushes to reverse the motor for a second, to slow it down so it stops faster.
So, check the brushes on the motor, if they show any signs of wear, it's probably them. 2nd, check the switch. Please let me know and if I've helped, give me a vote up. Thanks.

take the top cover off where yr blade is, make sure blade is in the highest position, take the 2 wrenches it came with and undo the nut.

SOURCE: faulty table saw
I had a similar problem with one of my MLT100's.. I figured the usual suspects were to blame (fuse, or circuit breaker)..but they checked out fine.. The next thing to do was give the switch & wiring a good look over, as they'll usually blow a hole through the side.. All seemed well with both.. Eventually I woke up to the fact that the switch 'did' blow as expected, but hadn't bothered to give any outward indications.. So I'd suggest replacing the switch before looking for anything major..it's always the small simple stuff that gets us..
