The usual problem with these types of units is the battery goes bad and won't accept charge anymore, or the charger itself is defective due to a broken power cord. Obtain a DC voltmeter and check the output voltage of the charger where it connects to the battery. It should measure several volts higher than the rated voltage of the battery. If this checks good, measure the voltage at the battery terminals which should be somewhat higher than the rated voltage. Problems in the motor can be the switch itself, or it may have a defective brush. Connect the meter to the wiring with the battery plugged in (if it is charged) and check for voltage at the motor with switch turned on. Remove each brush and check for length, burning, collapsed spring, or other damage. Occasionally, a wire can break within the field winding due to vibration. Hope some of this helps!

My Makita DSS610 18v cordless circular saw stopped working mid cut. I changed the battery to another, fully charged, one but still nothing. Tried again next day, with both batteries, still nothing.


Hello Derek, it seems that your motor or motor brushes have failed please contact the manufacture about replacing the motor brushes.

Saw stopped working. changed brushes. still not working.just dead.blade turns ok.not even a click


These are notorious for burning out armatures.
The replacement process is pretty involved, I would not attempt unless you are comfortable.
Remove the brushes
Remove the 3 Screws hold the motor assy to the saw
Remove the screws holding the motor housing together.
Separate the housing and you should be able to see right away if the armature is burnt (many times the windings actually blow apart)

Often when the armature burns out it also melts the brush holder assy - I would recommend replacing it as well.
If the armature appears fine then I would lean toward the switch. Makita BSS611 18V LXT Lithium Ion 6 1 2 Circular Saw Parts

Sounds like the motor has gone on this. Get it checked out but it might not be economical to be repaired. It could cost at least 50.00 for the parts alone.

Makita Saw Bss610 stopped


It might be that the brushes have got stuck in the brush holders. Take them out and make sure they run free.
